Set Internet Explorer Home Page using Powershell.

 

Hi,

Sometime in scripts or or in login scripts we want to set a users Internet Explorer home page to our Intranet site or to some other specific URL.

This became very handy and useful some times.

the code is below.

 

$myURL = "http://microsoft.com"
set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\main' -Name "Start Page" -Value $myURL

In above code, we are setting a $myURL in to the registry key “HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\main”


Now lets test it.
