return to old version

When I open a new tab, I want that tab to be blank, not with little icons of previous sites on it. This was fine until yesterday and it's not fine now. How do a make a new tab a BLANK tab again? MY kids use this computer and both my wife and I use porn and gambling sites.

I'm disappointed and surprised you think this 'improvement' is a good idea but I'm sure there's an easy fix. Tell me what it is please.

please refer to the following article in order to switch the new tab page off: New Tab Page – show, hide and customize top sites

your kids (not sure how old they are) could still access your browsing patterns, when they have a look into the history. so it's probably better to create a separate windows user account for them or use private browsing mode in a shared account...

Solved. Thank you.

We monitor their use, screen faces us, and the PCs in their room have absolutely every filter under the sun installed (except for topless sites - son is 12 and I don't see any harm in breasts. I'm a big fan myself). John
