Internet Explorer 8

I have just installed IE8, and am having a little problem.

On IE 7 i had my home page set to Google, and subsequent tabs opening as the same page Google.

I can't remember how I set this up, and was wondering if it can be done with IE8?

When you open a new tab, Internet Explorer displays the new tab page by default. If you prefer that your home page appear when you open a new tab, follow these steps:

Click to open Internet Explorer.

Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

Click the General tab, and then, under Tabs, click Settings.

In the Tabbed Browsing Settings dialog box, click the list under When a new tab is opened, open, click Your first home page, and then click OK twice.

That only sets the home page(s) it does not change the new tab default window

As with IE7. Open IE go to the web page you want as home page.

look to the top right of IE you will see a row of icons one is a house, click on the arrow to the right of the icon. Click on add or change home page. Select use this web page as your only home page. If you have more than one home page select add this web page to your home page tabs.

You will see that that is what TIMBO posted, however read my post at 10.30 if you want new tabs to display the home page.
