Change the InPrivateBrowsing Homepage in Internet Explorer 8

One way to change the homepage from the default about:InPrivate page is to edit the Registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs

Change the value of InPrivate from res://ieframe.dll/inprivate.htm to whatever Web site you want. Make sure it’s the full URL, including the http://.
