I've change the "Important URL's" in the "Internet Explorer" part of the gpo to the home page I want to set, and I did also Enable the "Disable home page changing" for the gpo.

It did disable the "Home page changing" ability for everyone, but the home page didn't change at all.

GPO = Group policy object? – Ivo Flipse Feb 11 '10 at 17:25
Yes, was I supposed to ask this in – user27780 Feb 11 '10 at 17:29
In the important URLs section, you said you customized the home page URL, correct? – commradepolski Feb 11 '10 at 17:40

Go there:

  • User Configuration - Windows Settings - Internet Explorer Maintenance - URLs/Important URLs

Set: Home Page URL to your prefered URL.

Don't set Search bar URL and Online Support page URL.

Scope: Authenticated Users Enforce your GPO and then... Et voila!

It should be good as long as you set it to USERS and not to Computers.

The part of forcing to users and not only to computers was missing for me, thanks. – user27780 Feb 14 '10 at 17:25
