IE9 - Showing more sites on about:tabs

By default, IE9 will show 2 rows of your favorite sites on the about:tabs homepage. However, you can customize IE9 to show up to 5 rows with a simple registry modification.


Inside the NewTabPage registry key, create a REG_DWORD named NumRows, with a value of 2 to 5.
Or, simply merge one of the following registry scripts:You'll need to restart IE in order to see the change.
