Online Support Site for Internet Explorer


Under Internet Explorer help menu, there is an option Online
Support
which has defaults to Microsoft’s internet site. If you do not
allow internet access from within the corporation or want the link to go to a
site of your choice, you can set the Online Support to
any URL using following registy hack:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Help_Menu_Urls

Name: Online_Support
Type: REG_SZ
Value: “http://supportsiteofyourchoice.org”

This tip applies to all versions of Internet Explorer. A very similar setting
involves the default Internet Explorer search page which you access via the the
“Search” toolbar button. To change the default search site:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Main

Name: Search Bar

Type: REG_SZ

Value: “http://searchsiteofyourchoice.org”
