I have 5 home page tabs that launch when I startup Internet Explorer. Normally this is fine, but other times I do not want the multiple startup pages launching. Is there a way to bypass the startup pages when starting up internet explorer? Maybe there is a key I can hold down when starting IE that will do this?

Couldn't find a key combo that would help with this. What you can do instead is create a shortcut to:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" about:blank

If you assign a keyboard shortcut to this, you can quickly launch a copy of IE that will skip any assigned home pages only for that session.
