  1. IE Technical Preview page opens every time I launch IE


    I did a clean install of Windows 10 build 10041 x64. Every time I launch IE from my taskbar it opens a second tab, flashes Go Microsoft.com and then opens the IE Technical Preview page. The welcome to the latest version of IE page. I have set my homepage to just Google, reset IE to defaults etc but can't get ride of it. Google opens and then a second later the second tab opens and focus is taken to this page. It's getting really annoying now. Anybody know how to get ride of it?

    :)

  2. Is there ANY solution to Slow IE-11 (not Edge) after upgrade to Win-10?

    I have IE 11 running on several fresh installs (not upgrades) of Windows 10, including a factory image of Windows 10 on a brand new Surface Pro 3. IE 11 runs very slow in this environment compared to how it ran in Windows 8.1. Simply opening the Google
    home page has a 5 to 10 second delay on all machines running Windows 10 and IE 11. No, I don't have a bunch of add-ons.

    This problem was noted in the technical preview, again noted after official launch, and still persists now. Makes Windows 10 not worth the upgrade.

    Microsoft, are you listening?

  3. Internet Explorer defaults to Zbiddy.com

    Great suggestion, but didn't work for me at first, due to my mis-understanding - still learning Windows Phone 8 - You learn something new every day.



    Steps I followed:

    - Confirmed no instances of IE were open. I usually close all inactive apps just because....

    - Unpined IE from start

    - Launched IE - it took me to zbiddy.com

    - Went into Settings - deleted all history

    - Closed IE

    - Launched IE and it still took me to this stuid zbiddy page.



    Frustrated....

    Fruther reflecting on ,

    1) The page comes virtually instanously as if its cached yet I flushed the history.

    2) You said you close all IE tabs and when launching IE it always takes you to a blank screen - that has never been my experience. IE always takes me to a recent page I viewed. So maybe when I say I'm closing IE I'm doing something different than you????
    I just double tab the back button to close an app/window until all windows are closed.

    Further reflecting.....

    3) Found the tab option..... Learn something every day - I'd yet to play with IE tabs on my Windows phone, I just figured each session I had open was a tab but it seems not.



    Thanks a lot for the help

    IE Technical Preview page opens every time I launch IE

    Look in the properties of the shortcut, change the Start In to actual file location instead of the generic location with % tags...see if it makes a difference.

    Go to internet options, general, type over whatever is in the homepage block (just type google.com) and press ENTER, do not click use current or anything else, yet. Click apply, ok. Exit IE and restart IE. Should have Google search and nothing else.

    The 2nd tab just gave up for me. After I clicked to close it a few times, it finally got the hint. *Wink

    I've read other similar reports, didn't seem to want to go away for me. If I had waited long enough maybe. Fixed now anyway.
