Disable Reopen Last Browsing Session IE 8 – Internet Explorer How To
I’ve been trying to figure out how to get Internet Explorer to automatically reopen last browsing session instead of having to click on Tools –> Reopen all of the time. (Yes, I know I can set about:tabs to be my home page or a bookmark and click on Reopen Last Browsing Session there, but that is still manual even if it isn’t hidden in a menu.)
What I did find is that you can disable reopen last browsing session feature in Internet Explorer 8 completely if you want to.
How To Disable Reopen Last Browsing Session Menu
Go into the registry (if you don’t know how, you shouldn’t be messing with it anyway).
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery
Add a new DWORD value named NoReopenLastSession
Set its value to 1
That is all it takes.
