When I use GPMC to look at the Settings for my Default Domain Policy, I still see an entry that says "Internet Explorer Maintenance" under User/Windows settings. And there are settings shown there that I need to change (specifically, the HomePage URL).
Now, I have changed it under User/Preferances/Registry, and added a start page registry option. I see the new entry in the address bar as IE is loading, but then the old address is filled in, as IE becomes available. 

It seems that the older setting is overriding it, as I am still getting that old entry as a home page.


Where is this old setting these days, so I can delete it? I don't seem to see it anywhere, using GPMC on Win 2012 R2. I want to set a home page URL for any version of IE (10 or 11).

"As a best practice, you should configure the Default Domain Policy GPO only to manage the default Account Policies

settings, Password Policy, Account Lockout Policy, and Kerberos Policy."

 

In other words, no user settings in the Default Domain Policy.

michael,
use an older GPMC; that setting is gone in 2012+.

And I don't want to reset the Default Domain Policy back to it's default state. I just want to remove these old IE Maintenance settings.
We're doing some major portal upgrades this weekend, and I'm not going to also try having to reset a whole set of GPO entries, I need to change just the one. Once that's done, I can migrate all the user settings out to a new "Standard User Config" GPO.

You will have to use an older computer to find them as those settings were removed once IE10 was installed or your OS has IE10/11.

You will have to find, or build, a computer (or VM) with no later than IE9 installed.
