Customizing Internet Explorer To Your Own Needs!
 
IE 6 offers a number of customization options. This Long Tip will highlight some of the more useful features available under Tools/Internet Options on the Menu Bar.
Tools/Internet Options is divided into six tabs. Each one is explained below.
 
1. General
Home Page: Specify the URL of the page you want to appear whenever you open IE 6, or whenever you click on the Home icon
 
Temporary Internet Files:
This option allows you to view the files in your browser's cache. The cache holds viewed Web pages for subsequent quick viewing. Retrieving a file from the cache is much faster than repeated trips to the remote Web server where the file originated. You can customize the Settings to decide how often to check for newer pages, to specify how much disk space to reserve for your cache, and to view files in the cache.
 
History:
This option customizes your access to pages you have visited with the History function. Here you can set the number of days to keep pages in your history.
 
Colors:
Choose colors for links, visited links, and link hovers (the color appearing when your mouse is over a link). You can also set a default text and background color.
 
Fonts:
Select the language script, the font displayed in Web pages, and the font displayed as plain text.
 
Languages:
Select the language that will display Web pages accessed with IE 6.
 
Accessibility:
Choose to ignore colors, font sizes and font styles on Web pages. You can also set a style sheet as the display template for all Web pages viewed with IE 6.
 
2. Security
Here you can set levels of security for individual Web pages. See IE 6's Help menus for more information.
 
3. Content
 
Content Advisor:
You can enable ratings of objectional content to control the pages that may be viewed with this browser.
 
Certificates:
This feature allows you to manage the identification certificates you may have. See the Help menus for more information.
 
Personal Information:
This consists of two options. AutoComplete will store entered Web address, information entered into forms, and usernames and passwords needed to access sites you have visited. When you are using your browser, previous entries will come up as choices so that you don't have to retype the information. This can make your work go much faster. You can customize these options, and delete your settings. My Profile offers a template for entering personal information. If a Web site requests this information, you can give permission for it to be used.
 
4. Connections
Here you can store the information about your Internet Service Provider, configure your LAN settings, or send your browser requests through a proxy server.
 
5. Programs
Here you can set the programs you want the browser to use for HTML editing, email, Usenet news, collaboration ("Internet Call"), your calendar and contact list.
 
6. Advanced
This screen offers a number of options in the categories of accessibility, browsing, HTTP settings, Microsoft VM (Virtual Machine), multimedia access, printing, searching and security. Set these options if you are comfortable with them.
