Tweak Internet Explorer to Enhance Speed

Most Internet Explorer (IE) users complain about its slow speed, and how much time it takes to start up, and load web pages. However, a few tweaks will ensure that your IE experience becomes twice as fast. This article will tell you how to carry out these minor modifications – all you have to do is follow the steps listed out below.

IE Tweak 1

  1. Launch Internet Explorer, and select the option Tools -> Internet Options.
  2. Select the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Settings field, scroll down to the heading called Multimedia. There, you have to clear the check-boxes next to the following options (as per your preference):
    1. Play animations in webpages
    2. Play sounds in webpages
    3. Show pictures
  4. Click on Apply, and then OK.

However, the problem with this tweak is that it will greatly restrict your internet experience – all at the cost of speed. This might not be an attractive option to many.

IE Tweak 2

  1. Again, open the Internet Options dialog.
  2. Select the Content tab.
  3. Under the AutoComplete section, click on the tab that says Settings.
  4. Clear the check-boxes next to the Forms and User names and password on forms options.
  5. Click on OK.
  6. Click on OK at the Internet Options dialog.

IE Tweak 3

  1. Open the Internet Options dialog, and select the Security tab.
  2. Under the Security level for this zone section, click on the tab that says – Custom Level…
  3. In the list that you see, select the Disable option for any (or all) of the following:
    1. ActiveX controls and plugins
    2. Java
    3. Scripting
  4. Click on OK.
  5. Click on OK in the Internet Options dialog.

This tweak too, like Tweak 1 above, will greatly limit your internet browsing experience and you might not like it. However, if you want speed at all costs, it might be worth it.
