How can I configure secondary pages to load in a tab when I start Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 7.0?

A. Because IE supports tabbed browsing, it's possible to configure pages to load in addition to the main Start page. Start your registry editor (e.g., regedit.exe), and navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main subkey. From the Edit menu, select New, Multi-String Value. Enter the name "Secondary Start Pages" (don't type the quotes), and press Enter. Double-click the new value, and put one URL on each line you want to open in a separate tab at IE startup. Click OK, and close the registry editor. If you delete the value or empty it, the additional tabs will no longer open
