Steps to reproduce



Repro Steps:

Place a shortcut to any URL into the startup folder. On startup the desired URL will appear but the home button will be missing.

Expected Results:

Even when launching sites on startup there should be a Home button in the right hand corner as this provides a uniform experience to users. Pages launched at startup may point to a different URL than the intended home page for users.

A company may have an intranet page launched at startup which provides useful notifications to users. However the default home button behaviour is to direct users to a popular search engine such as Bing. Currently a user would have to shut down the browser and then restart it from the Internet Explorer icon in either the taskbar or start menu in order to get a Home button.

Actual Results:
