How to set advanced settings in Internet Explorer by using Group Policy Objects
Use Group Policy Objects to set advanced settingsYou must have the Group Policy set to Preference mode to customize Internet Explorer. To do this:
- Open the Group Policy Editor by using Microsoft Management Console (MMC).
- Locate and click Internet Explorer Maintenance under Windows Settings in User Configuration.
- Right-click Internet Explorer Maintenance, and then click Preference Mode.
Note Preference mode settings are set by an administrator; however, you can change the settings after the policy is applied (for example, your home page 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.
