NOTE: Use extreme caution when modifying your registry as changing some values may affect your computer adversely. Prior to changing anything in your registry, you may want to consider making a backup of the registry first.
For example, add a string value named “tips” with value data http://www.fmsinc.com/free/tips.html.
Then in the Internet Explorer address bar, type “About:Tips,” and you are redirected to the web site.
