  1. How to change options on Project Spartan?


    Just started looking at Spartan today and I'm struggling to work out how to do a few things, that I think were on the 'Internet Options' tab in IE.

    Can anyone tell me how to:

    Change how tabs work so when I open something in a new tab I automatically switch to that tab
    Change my Home Page (I can't find an icon for this now, just something where you have to type in the address. Is this the new way?)
    Delete something from my favorites (right click doesn't offer any options)

    Maybe there is a quick guide to Project Spartan that I (also) haven't found yet?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    :)

    Miracast

    Hi,

    I have successfully connected my computer to a TV but it lagged terribly. I thought if i changed the projection to second screen only, instead of duplicate, it might fix the issue but it didn't. Now when i project my pc to TV, my monitor displays nothing
    (as it should) and it display on the TV with immense lag. I cannot change the projection options as it lags immensely. Is there a way to reset miracast so i can choose how to project it to the TV? Also, is there a way to reduce the lag on the TV?

    Thank You,

    Dan

    How to change options on Project Spartan?

    Hey Maggy,

    In Spartan, if you click on an external link, it will open in a new tab and switch to it immediately, (if you have it set that way in Internet Options, I believe),
    if you wheel click any link, it will open in a new tab but not switch to it immediately.

    Change Home Page:

    There is no "Use current page" button in Spartan, you have to type or copy and paste a URL you want to use for your home page.

  6. Thanks for this. It's a pain (IMO) to have to type or paste a URL rather than being able to do this through icons and clicks. Can't see this method being popular with a lot of people, and if it's not easy to change the home page from MSN it might put people off using this browser.

  7. I haven't managed to find Internet Options in Spartan yet *Sad. I had IE set to automatically switch to a new tab when I chose to open a link in one, and it was very useful on here as I tend to get lost if I keep opening links in the same tab. And sometimes links here automatically open in a new tab, but not always. If the new tab switch isn't automatic I find myself looking at the screen, wondering why nothing has changed, before I remember to check if the tab has opened. So for me, if I can't do this, it will be a pain.

    Thank you. Done.

    I was struggling with this at first as I was looking for that Remove button at the bottom of my favorites list. But then I right-clicked, and there it was! But I KNOW yesterday when I tried I had NO right click options.

    How to change options on Project Spartan?

    Why, do you have any idea how few people actually change their homepage? Unless some third party program does it for them...

    I'd like to know the number of how few people change their homepage. So far I know at least 2 people.

    With such a low number I'm surprised they even give us the option to change the home page.

  14. I usually change my home page, like it to be something simple like google.com or bing.com

    I also change the page that opens when creating a new tab to be a blank page

    When I start my browser I want it to open quickly, not have to download loads of pictures and news stories like msn.com does
