Reopen last session greyed out

  1. #11


    I was kind of afraid you might say that. It's a last resort thing but do get this which might again only show the Reset might be the way to go (or try) ... but in Internet Options, if I click on "Start with home page" ... shut down and then start IE10 again, the "Reopen last browsing session" is not greyed out. Clicking on that restores the tabs but then I notice "Reopen last browsing session" is again greyed out. I've tried this twice with the same results.
    Is there something else that comes to your mind for a fix or does this settle it in your mind for a Reset?

    Brink, I got silly and reset the browser which does nothing as to the "Reopening last browsing session" being greyed out. This is totally weird and wonderful. Actually by resetting, I thought to have lost my bookmark icons and my font size to be changed but for whatever reason, nothing changed. I find this to be a bit strange in itself. And I did reboot also but nothing changes.

    Was it always doing this, or just started happening recently?

    If recently, then you might try doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this started.

    If always or not sure, then you might consider refreshing Windows 8. Afterwards, test after installing anything to see if it may be a cause.

    This has only begun I'd say within the last couple weeks - I say that, because I just noticed it within that time frame. Before, there used to be a Repair for Internet Explorer - it seems to me that was there when or if one wished to uninstall the browser - do you happen to know if that is still present in IE10 and if so, how does one get to it?

    You could try turning off Internet Explorer 10 in Windows Features, restarting, turn it back on, and restart may help.

    If not, then I'd say give a system restore a try.
