    Problem with IE browser

    Hi There
    Whenever I open my IE 11 browser, it shows 2 previous tabs from earlier searches.

    Although I can close them down, they still appear whenever I open IE ?

    depends on what you want to open

    One option is to start with a blank page
    Find the GEAR at the top right > click it > select Internet options > select the GENERAL tab
    one option is to enter about:blank > always starts explorer with a blank screen

    Did you check your settings in Internet Options?

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for such a quick reply...

    nt62) I should have said"when I open my Google home page"

    winuser) I see no reason to check settings (right or wrongly) as I have been using my IE for years daily, I have no other problem with it, apart from these previous tabs. The winow/page is no problem at all
