Windows 7: InPrivate as Default

08 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional, 32 Bit
InPrivate as Default

I've added -private to the shortcut of IE8, so that it opens automatically as InPrivate.

I've also changed the registry key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs, so that my default homepage shows at start.

Although everything works fine, it's a little annoying that my default URL don't show up in the adress bar, instead it says about:InPrivate. Is there a way to change this, so that my default homepage URL show instead?

InPrivate Filtering (IE8)
Every time I restart the browser the InPrivate Filtering gets disabled even if I had it enabled on the previous session. Is there anyway to fix this? Also if you add a lot of rules to the InPrivate Filtering list will it slow down the browser?
