DisableWelcomePage

Updated: August 1, 2012

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

DisableWelcomePage specifies whether to skip the Welcome page when the user runs Internet Explorer for the first time.

The Internet Explorer Welcome page introduces users to the browser and its features.

noteNote
This setting has been deprecated in Windows® 8. The information about this deprecated setting is provided for reference only. There is no Welcome page in Internet Explorer 10 through Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 8. The setting continues to exist for Internet Explorer 10 through Internet Explorer 11 on Windows® 7.

If both DisableWelcomePage and IEWelcomeMsg are set, the value for IEWelcomeMsg is used to determine if whether the Welcome page is displayed. We recommend that you clear the value for IEWelcomeMsg, and use the DisableWelcomePage setting instead.

When the user opens Internet Explorer for the first time, the user may also see the First Run Wizard. For more information, see DisableFirstRunWizard.

 

true

Skips the Welcome page when Internet Explorer runs for the first time. When the user opens the browser, an empty page is shown. This is the default value.

false

Shows the Welcome page when Internet Explorer runs for the first time.

For a list of the supported Windows editions and architectures that this component supports, see Microsoft-Windows-IE-InternetExplorer.
