IE9: Increase the Number of Sites Displayed on New Tab Page (Your most popular sites)

Posted October 1, 2010 by Rob Rogers in Browsers

Internet Explorer 9’s New Tab Page displays two rows of 5 (10) of your most popular sites. You can increase the number of rows from 2 to 3, 4, or 5 by applying a simple change to your registry.

1. Close Internet Explorer.

2. Open Notepad.

3. Copy and paste the following into the new text document:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing\NewTabPage]
"NumRows"=dword:00000005

(Change the dword value to 00000003 for three rows and 00000004 for 4 rows)

4. Save the document as ie9_tabpage_pop_sites.reg.

5. Double-click the new file to merge it into the Registry.

6. Continue through the UAC prompt and confirm that you wish to perform the action.

Open Internet Explorer and select a new tab to now see the additional rows.
