You know that it is a slow browser (probably it is not already but I am still using W7). It is mainly because it loads a lot of stuff during start up.

There are guidelines how to set up "about:blank" from the Internet Options. It helps but I remember that there was a stronger, command line argument for doing that. Because blank page still loaded some libraries whereas command line option enabled almost instant start.

Open Run using Win + R and then type:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome

Or if that wasn't what you wanted try:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"  -extoff
