Windows 7: IE10: How to control "frequent" sites shown on new tab?

IE10: How to control "frequent" sites shown on new tab?

When I click to start a new IE10 browser tab, it starts by having 10 white squares on the screen, each representing a different website I have visited. They act as quick-links to get back to them. Is there any way I can control this list? Can I force a website to be listed there (btw, just visiting it won't enter it into this list)? Can I delete one for good? (If I delete it, it will be replaced by another "frequent" site and if I keep deleting, sooner or later the original one will come back.)

Does the end user have any control over this stuff? I can't seem to find where....

Hello Jasaco, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can change what new tabs in IE10 open to either a blank page, home page(s), or frequent sites (what you see now).

In a frequent sites new tab, you can select to "hide sites" or "show sites" (empty white squares). However, there's not a way to specify what sites are listed since they are just your most frequent ones.

Hope this helps,
