_IECreate makes a window without tabs. How can I get tabs back?

4 posts in this topic

I'm making an Autoit program that creates a kiosk-type Internet Explorer with a banner at the top of the screen.  Everything is working perfectly now except I noticed there's no ability to make new tabs in IE with ctrl+t and there's no tab bar.  How can I enable this?

Can I enable this?

Thanks,

Im just guessing, but im pretty sure you have to actually code the tabs and not just enable it.

If you simply open an Internet explorer browser yourself you notice that there is a tab and the ability to make new tabs.  It seems that when using _IECreate that this functionality is completely removed.  I'm asking about how I can get this functionality back.  

If it takes programmatically adding a tab with a blank page, then that's what I must do, but I'm not sure how to go about that.

Thanks.

What version of IE are you using? Because when I use _IECreate, the IE window that opens has a tab for the page requested. I'm using IE10 on Windows 7 x64.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
