place a shortcut to IE6 on your desktop, right-click and select properties then under TARGET add the switch " -nohome ". Example: C:\Programme\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome
after that IE starts very fast. Have fun!

it's even easier to open IE, go to tools-internet options. on the general tab there just click on blank page as homepage. :D

yep, the blank page still has to be loaded. So if you want to shave those microseconds off -nohome is faster :) . also should work with all widows os as i used this with 98

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome


rename location as appropriate

basicly what it says in the first post

Putting -nohome in the target line prevents you from going to Tools -> Internet Options.

Well at least it did for me...

well set your homepage to about:blank and your shortcut to open with the -nohome option. You will only have this problem right when you start the browser. So if you want to go tools->options right after starting the browser, just hit home and then you can do it. If you go to tools-> options frequently right after opening the browser, you might want to remove the -nohome option.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
