welcome screen on internet explorer

when you first start internet explorer on a new computer, a welcome screen starts and asks you to set it up. I want to
get that screen to pop up again so i can change some settings.
does anyone know how to do that???

Hello Sherwood,

Resetting Internet Explorer (IE) completely will get you that setup screen again. However, it will wipe out all of your current settings in IE and restore all of IE to default as well.

Was there something specific that you were wanting to change instead? There are other ways to change these settings without having to reset Internet Explorer.

Hope this helps for now,

All settings can be changed via the tools menu. Right-click above any window's viewable website area (below the address bar), select "customize", then "add or remove commands" and add "tools" to the right side list.
