The Internet Explorer Web browser includes many update features from previous versions of the software, such as the way tabs are displayed in the browser. When you select the "Favorites" option from the top toolbar, the "Feeds" and "History" tabs are displayed. If you no longer want to view these tabs when you open your "Favorites" you must manually edit the registry. When editing a sub-key in the registry, take extreme caution that you edit everything correctly; any mistake could severely damage your computer.
