    Internet Explorer has the option to Start with tabs from the last session, which can be delivered with group policy. To set Internet Explorer to start with the tabs from the last browsing sessions, use the following group policy:

    Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel -> General Page -> Start Internet Explorer with tabs from last browsing session

    ❗ You can set IE to start with tabs from the last session using the computer or user group policy settings.

    In order to set Internet Explorer to start with tabs from the last session, you may need the appropriate Internet Explorer admx template, also I recommend doing the GPO from a machine with the same version of IE that you are trying to set the Group Policy for.

    Another way to set IE to start with tabs from the last session is to use Group Policy Preferences to create the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Continuous Browsing

    Then create a new DWORD called Enable with a value of 1

    Personally this isn’t my favourite method to set IE to start tabs from the last session, because Group Policy Preferences are not so easily reported on and are not synchronous – these things can increase the complexity of an environment.
