    I have a question regarding a PC at work, tabbed browsing has been disabled on the machine for Internet Explorer, they are currently using IE7 on this machine... although I will upgrade to 8 once completed.

    I cannot re-enable the tabs through IE options as all is greyed out, gpo has been cleared but to no avail, I know there is an entry in the registry to force the tabbed browsing to be enabled, I think I found it through [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing]

    Is this the correct location, to then set the Enabled data to "1" which should force?

    Is the OS in question set to 'Classic view'? If so, you may need to re-enable a default theme before the tabs return.

    Also, I doubt that a reg setting will help if the tabs were disabled via a GPO - You may need to close Internet Explorer and run gpedit.msc. Navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Explorer -> Force Classical View. Set Force Classical View to "Disable".

    There is also a "Turn off Tabbed Browsing" option: Navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer.

    Don't know, but it may help......

    Hi Shadowwebs,
    Looking at this site, it looks as though that is the correct setting to alter in the registry.
