Perhaps I should call this post, “Lazy Man’s IE Session Management”.
On IE9 and IE10 I’ve always wanted a session manager. Well, until I find or make one, I’ll make do with the following PowerShell script:
Get-Process| where name -eq iexplore | foreach kill
or, the PowerShell-less .bat
taskkill /f /im iexplore.exe
When I relaunch IE, I can choose to immediately recovery the session or postpone and later start the recovery via the About:Tabs or Tools link.
For sessions that I regularly start, a simple About:Tabs with my stock choices bring me to particular tasks/projects or workflows.
Now what I’d like to do for IE intensive loads is to create a script that will load X instances of IE, each window housing related tab but only loading under lower process priority and with a even watch to wait for prior tabs and window load completions…
