You are here:

The Internet Explorer browser is installed on all Windows computers. The browser settings configured in Internet Explorer control some of the Internet access and security features of other components on the Windows system. Internet Explorer has a main configuration window where you set all of the options and preferences for the browser. Options include security, program features and general settings, such as the home page.

  • Click the Windows “Start” button and select “All Programs.” Click “Internet Explorer” to open your main Windows browser. In the menu options, click “Tools,” then “Internet Options.” This opens your main configuration window.
  • Click the “General” tab. This screen is general settings, but the most common setting is the home page. Type your desired home page in the text box. This page is the website location that opens by default when you start the browser. Click “Delete” in the “Browsing History” section to delete your cached files and cookies.
  • Click the “Security” tab. This tab blocks websites or allows access for Web browser programs such as ActiveX to run. Click the “Custom” button. Select “Enabled” for features you want to allow and “Disabled” for features you want to block. Click “OK” to save your settings.
  • Click the “Privacy” tab. Use the scroll handle to set the amount of privacy, which blocks some cookies depending on the level of security. You can set it to high privacy, which blocks all cookies, or set it to “Medium” to only block some third-party cookies. Set it to “Low” to allow all cookies.
  • Click the “Advanced” tab. This window has several boxes with associated browser configurations. Check the box to turn on the setting and remove the check to disable the option. After you choose all of your browser settings, click “OK” to close the configuration window and save your settings.
