No Home in IE

Blanked out


You can open Internet Explorer to a blank page.

Sometimes your normal home page may be too busy, or slow to load when you just want to pop out to a different location.

This trick will give you a blank slate to paste in a new URL.


  1. Create a new Desktop shortcut
    (Right click an empty spot on the desktop and choose New>Shortcut)


  2. Copy the following, and paste it as the target for the shortcut:


    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" nohome


  3. Name the shortcut something like Blank IE

It's Your Icon Too

Brand your own Explorer


Developers may consider it heretical, but the icon that appears in the upper right corner of Internet Explorer and Outlook Express can be changed.

You can use your own static logo and/or an animated one.

All it takes is MSPaint and Regedit.

For directions see: Winguides.com

Repair Internet/Network connection

Before the service call


Loss of connectivity is usually solved by the big three:

  • Restarting the computer
  • Unplugging the router
  • Unplugging the modem


Vista has a built in feature that you'll usually find on the Task bar.
It indicates current connections, but if you right click you can find Diagnose and repair.

IE Temp Files

Storage area


Every once in awhile when the Berners-Lee pipeline clogs up, you are instructed to delete the temporary files that IE saves.

You can do it with the Click of an IE Options button.

Here's where those files are stored:




As you see, you could move that location if you wanted to.
