    Can you set 2 homepages in internet explorer (Server 2008 r2 & 7).

    Hi

    I have been asked if it possible to set two homepages in internet explorer so that when a student launches internet explorer it starts one homepage in one tab and another in the next tab.

    I'm thinking it isn't possible, what do you guys think?

    Thanks for reading.

    Tom.

    Yes it is possible , open Internet Explorer , goto internet options, in the Home Page box , type your two homepages one under each other.
    You can alos do it via GPO.

    Hi

    Thanks for your help. I'm struggling to find a GPO that will allow me to end two or more URL's, can you offer anymore help?

    Thanks.
    Tom

    Disable changing secondary home page settings

    When you enable this policy you can set what the secondary home pages are, and prevent the user from changing them.

    Look out though - for some reason on our network it doesn't load the double home pages unless the users presses Home. It also wants to add in MSN.co.uk to the mix even though we have not added it.
