Internet Explorer is one of the oldest web browsers that is still widely used today. Released in 1995, it was the initial browser marketed by Microsoft for Windows 95. IE stayed on top of the most commonly used browsers for a considerable number of years until Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge overshadowed it.
- Start by locating your browser from the list of apps and launching it.
- Then click on the Tools menu with a gear icon at the top right corner of the browser window.
- From the dropdown, tap Internet options, which is the second last option from the list.
- Then click on the Security tab in the small window that opens up.
- You’ll see four icons – click on Internet and then Custom Level.
- Scroll down to find the Scripting section from the long list of settings (the Scripting section is the second from the bottom, so you might want to scroll down fast until you are almost at the bottom of the list).
- Here, you will find the first item, Active Scripting, with three different options; Disable, Enable, and Prompt listed under.
- Finally, click OK to close the Security Settings, then OK again to close the Internet Options settings.
