    When you buy a new computer and you first start IE, it walks you through a setup process that costumizes your browser. What if I cancel that and want to get it back? I ask because I've been asked to write a step-by-step proceedure document outlining how to customize IE9 when it's run for the first time. I'd like to write down my steps as I'm going through it and take some screen captures. Is it possible to bring the step-by-step walk-through back?

    You should be able to open internet explorer,click tools/internet options.
    Click the advanced tab.
    Click the reset button.
    Reset internet explorer to defaults,then close internet explorer and open
    it again.
    It should startup at the setup.
    If the menu bar is not visible,right click the top of the window and click menu bar.

    Thanks, leroys, but unfortunately that didn't work. Everything got reset but I didn't get the setup wizard when I re-launched it again.

    No need. I tried it again and it worked this time. I don't know why. I must have done something wrong the first time.
