Figure 10-3: Use the Quick Tabs view in Internet Explorer 10.
From older versions of Internet Explorer, you are familiar with the concept
of having a homepage—a website that is displayed when the web browser
is loaded. In Windows 8, that classic browser feature has been mixed in with
tabs. Now you can specify multiple websites to open by default when you load
Internet Explorer, and you can display them in different tabs. Although this is
not exactly a groundbreaking feature, it is a nice hidden feature that helps you
customize your browser.
Using a multitab homepage is easy when you know the secret. Just follow
these steps to set up your own multitab homepage:
1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. Click the gear icon and then select Internet Options.
3. When Internet Options loads, click the General tab. You see the Home Page
section at the top of the screen. To use multiple sites as your homepages,
just enter each URL on a separate line, as shown in Figure 10-4. When you
have finished, click OK to save your changes.
Click the Home button to see your changes.
