  • The Configure new tab page default behavior policy setting is under the following node:
    Computer Configuration (or User Configuration)\Administrative Templates\Windows components\Internet Explorer

    Enable this group policy, and choose new tab behavior: Home Page

    After configure it, if not works, also install this hotfix: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980959

    No, it is not. You only can define Tabs to be opened as homepages when
    IE is starting. Opening different pages when opening new tabs is not
    possible.
     

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
