Windows 7: Customizing new tab colour in IE 9

Customizing new tab colour in IE 9


When I use internet explorer, and open up new tab in the same window, the new tab colour is quite dark so can not read on the tab which web page it is in there.

How can I change the colour so that writing will be more visible.

Hi email257525 and welcome to SevenForums

I do not know how to manually change each Tab's colour, but fortunately you can disable them:

Open Internet Explorer, click the Settings Icon and select Internet Options.

Select the General Tab and under the Tabs Section select Settings.

Now deselect Enable Tab Groups from the Tabbed Browsing Settings Dialogue.

Close and reopen explorer and coloured tabs should be disabled.

There isn't a way to customize the colors at all, but like Infinity said, you can disable them completely.
