We’ve taken a look at how we can use Internet Explorer’s new “Speed Dial” page as our Home page.  Today’s Quick Tip is going to show you how to display more than the default 2 rows of sites in the new tab page or “about:tabs”.

Note: Before modifying the Registry, check out our guide to working with the Windows Registry, which teaches you the basics and how to back up keys before making changes
