NumRows trick in IE9

neat....I should have read the manual ages ago i love this feature

Show More Sites on the New Tab Page

By default, there are two rows of sites on the New Tab page. However, you can display up to five rows. To display more rows, open the Registry Editor by entering “regedit” (without the quotes) in the Search box on the Start menu. Navigate to the following key:


Right-click on the NewTabPage key and select New | DWORD (32-bit) Value from the popup menu to create a new value in the right pane. Name that new value NumRows and set the value to a number from 2 to 5. (eg i created 4 in my setup below)

  1. This trick is not working very well on IE9, which OS do you have?

  2. Win 7.

    And as you cant run IE9 on vista/XP it should be working (or are you running Win8?)
