As a precaution when editting the registry, please remember to "export" or backup the key that you are altering.

In this case, when one navigates to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_MAXCONNECTIONSPERSERVER

 

Highlight the key with a click, then at the top, click on File, then Export. Choose a location and give the file a name you'll recognize, then click the "Save" button.

If you aren't happy with your edit, or wish to undo it, just navigate to your saved registry export, double click it and choose merge.

The changes will take place after a reboot.

 

Safety first. ;)
