Change the Default Start Page When Opening Internet Explorer in NoAdd-Ons Mode

When you start Internet Explorer 7 in No Add-ons mode, it loads the about:NoAdd-ons page, ignoring your custom Home page setting. The about:NoAdd-ons page shows informational text about the No Add-ons mode in Internet Explorer, along with an information bar at the top.

By editing a registry value, you can skip the about:NoAdd-ons page and have Internet Explorer load your Home page. Use these steps:

1. Launch Regedit.exe and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main

2. Double-click the value named Extensions Off Page

3. Set its Value data accordingly. For example, to set Google as the start page, type To start Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) with a blank page, type about:blank

4. Exit the Registry Editor.

Undo information

To revert back to the old setting, in Step 3 type the value data as about:NoAdd-ons.
