Ken’s multi-tab homepage tip for Internet Explorer users (column)

Not long ago I received a great email from Ken Wright in my inbox. In his email, Ken shared a follow-up tip to one I wrote about late last year covering how to go about locking in Favorite tabs as multiple homepage tabs in Google Chrome. His tip shares the method IE users should follow.

(Thanks for taking the time to reach out and share your knowledge with everyone, Ken!)

Ken shares:

“I’m a part-time resident of Summit County, so I try to read the Summit Daily online every day to keep up with what is going on when I am away. I really love your articles, and they are usually the first thing I click on when they come up.

“It’s a great time saver. I currently use IE 11, but that feature is available in older versions as well, because I’ve been doing it for a long time. I currently have nine tabs, including all of my email addresses, my calendar and a map, with my home address already entered.”

“In connection with your recent article about Google Chrome, you probably know this, but for those of us who don’t care for Google tracking us and therefore use IE instead of Chrome, you can easily accomplish the same thing by clicking on the Favorites star, then from the dropdown box selecting ‘Add tabs to your favorites.’
