    Do you want to close all tabs? Ranger?

    Does anyone know how to stop the prompt "do you want to close all tabs ?" coming up in IE 7.

    I want to if possible have a way of disabling the using group policy as we have over 500 clients!

    Currently it is preventing Ranger from closing internet explorer if a security violation is made.

    Help, much appricated.

    See image below you can do it on each machine this way.



    As for group policy I think there should be a setting called "Warn Me when closing Multiple Tabs" and you can disable it there not entirely sure. Should be in the following location;

    Computer(or user) Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Internet Explorer

    You will need the correct Administive Templates for IE7 which you can get here

    Hi

    The registry key is

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing

    The value and name is
    REG_DWORD WarnOnClose Value 1 (for no warning)

    If you want Ranger to set this value for you you will need to edit the preshellNT, 9x or Vista .rrg files in the Ranger directory and add the following exported registry branch. The setting should then be changed upon next login

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing]
    "WarnOnClose"=dword:00000001

    Rgds

    This should work but I cannot accept any resposibility if it doesn't. The preshell files in Ranger are handy for this purpose as they let you do registry merges essentially before Ranger loads and would ban such activity.

    I disable tabs in IE, as kids can hide stuff easier if they like.
