    disable tab restore Immersive (modern) IE


    Hello,

    is there a way to disable tab restore in the immersive version of IE 11 on win 8.1 spring update?

    I always end up with many open tabs from past sessions and it gets harder to find the right tab.

    Alternatively, is there a way to "close tabs on exit" ?

    thanks

    Hello Tomanband, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    See if using step 7 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to set Internet Explorer to open to your home page instead of last session may help. This will be applied to both the desktop and modern IE.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
