But I don’t want companyweb as my default IE home page!
One of the things people want to do is to change their home page in IE. (As an aside it’s my personal pet peeve about IE. If people are using IE it’s because they LIKE to not have change or have a line of business app that requires it. So in IE9 where they hide the favorites and hide the tabs, the people that are STILL using IE and actually LIKE it don’t want to download IE9 as it’s a change from what they have…but I digress…)
So back to our SBS 2008/2011. You join a computer to the domain and bamn, it changes the home page in IE to companyweb. And you want something different right?
Go into the group policy management console and go to the Windows SBS User policy. Drill down to the level shown and change the Home page to what you want.
