Autostart several favourites upon startup

    IE7 on XP SP2
    Is it possible to open several of my favourites, in their own tabs, in a
    certain order, upon initial start up off IE?
    Can this be controlled to only happen on the first time IE is started and
    not any subsequent startups?

    Apologies if this has been asked before but a search did not reveal any
    relevent hits.
    Many thanks
    DeanH

    Hi,
    You can, as you know, have multiple homepages, but if you've closed all IE
    windows, all homepages will load the next time IE is opened.

    You should create a tab group from Favorites> Add current tabs to favorites.

    Or, you could have these sites open when the computer is started by adding
    those Internet Shortcuts to the Startup folder. Right-click> open the Start
    Menu> Programs> Startup. This will add to the startup time.

    Hope this helps,

    Don - Fantastic, spot on.
    I have used the multiple home page method, so simple.
    We recently upgraded to IE7, corporately, and I was not aware that this was
    possible.
    If I get time I may play with the StartUp method as well to weigh up the
    pros/cons of each method
    Works beautifully.
    All the best
