Browsers – Internet Options (29)

April 21, 2008

When you do a lot of work on shared computers there is a chance that others will change the settings on the Internet browser. It’s like driving a car after someone smaller/bigger than you has driven it – you might need to put things back the way you like them.

Browser settings aren’t any different. If you’re sharing a computer, you may want to adjust a few things to make your browsing more comfortable.

Internet Options lets you change your browser preferences.

In our tour, we’ll take a look at how to set the home page, delete your browsing history, and how to use Auto Complete.

Start the tour!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1. Watch the Internet Options tour.
2. Open up Internet Options.
3. Find the Auto Complete options under the Content tab.
4. If you’re on a shared staff computer, uncheck the box next to user names and passwords.
5. Take the survey..

    I use firefox. If you have a designated computer you can download firefox if you want.

    But, when you have to that pesky metro update of your personal info you have to do it in Internet Explorer.

    Double the pleasure! Double the fun! Double my usual typos!

    Never never click click submit submit twice twice.

    A man came to me in a dream and informed that there is an add-on for Firefox that lets you run Internet Explorer inside one your tabs. I haven’t tried it yet, but the man in my dream said it works well for Metro sites.

    OK, I found auto-complete in Internet Explorer, but I failed to find it in Firefox.

    These lessons are very helpful. Thank you!
