I have just started using IE7 on my work laptop…
I would like to know if it is possible to open the program with different sets of homepage tabs, i.e. I open IE7 with a homepage consisting of several tabs of company intranet websites when I am in the office then with a different shortcut I can open it with a set of tabs with non company websites (e.g. Kaitech).
Thanks in advance for any help :thumbsupNovember 21, 2007 at 1:47 am #2677
lmk if this works:IE7 does not support specifying multiple URLs on the command line, but another way to do this is to use IE Automation to launch IE as an out-of-proc COM server and then call methods such as IWebBrowser2::Navigate2. While you can do this using C++ or any language that supports COM, the easiest is to use Windows Scripting Host.
First, create a ‘lanuchie.js’ file using your favorite text editor, add the following, and save:
var navOpenInBackgroundTab = 0x1000;
var oIE = new ActiveXObject(“InternetExplorer.Application”);
oIE.Visible = true;
Now from the command line you can do:
to open IE, navigate the first tab, and then open three background tabs.
One caveat: due to some IE features such as Protected Mode you will sometimes observe that the links are opened in an existing IE window.

Apologies for the late thanks :-[
I was hoping that there was a hidden setting in IE7 but nevertheless I will give this a go..

Try creating a IE7 shortcut with the following “iexplore http://www.kaitech.hk“December 22, 2007 at 9:07 am #2680
