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.
- Open the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in. To do this:
- Click Start, click Run, type mmc in the Open box, and then click OK.
- On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
- Click Add.
- Click Group Policy Object Editor, and then click Add.
- Click the target Group Policy object (GPO). The default GPO is Local Computer. Click Browse to select the GPO that you want, and then click Finish.
- Click Close, and then click OK.
- In the console tree, expand the GPO, expand User Configuration, and then expand Windows Settings.
- Right-click Internet Explorer Maintenance, and then click Preference Mode.
The Advanced folder appears under Internet Explorer Maintenance in the console tree.
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.
