This article describes how to use Group Policy to implement advanced settings in Microsoft Internet Explorer. This article assumes that you have successfully implemented Group Policy settings in your Windows Server 2003 environment.
When you configure Internet Explorer on client computers by using Group Policy, you can customize the Advanced settings and some of the Temporary Internet Files settings that are not available by default.
NOTE: Preference mode settings are set by an administrator. However, you can change these settings after the policy is applied (for example, your home-page setting or settings on the Advanced tab). After the policy is applied to a client computer, you can change your home page and advanced settings.
If the administrator does not want users to change the settings, the administrator can apply a restriction by using the Administrative templates in the GPO.
An administrator must also combine GPOs, an organizational unit, a user, or a computer by implementing both a Preference mode and a Maintenance mode GPO.
For more information about how to use Group Policy to administer Internet Explorer, see Internet Explorer Maintenance Help. To do so, right-click Internet Explorer Maintenance in the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in, and then click Help.
