Configuring Internet Explorer in Windows XP

Internet Explorer is the Web browser that is provided with Windows XP. Internet

Explorer provides access to local and Internet resources using many protocols, such as

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and File Transfer Protocol (FTP). As a DST, you

will be called on to help users personalize and maintain Internet Explorer.

We can perform the vast majority of the configuration in Internet Explorer by using

the Internet Options dialog box. We can access this dialog box in the following


>Right-click the Internet Explorer icon in the Start menu or on the desktop and then

select Internet Properties.

> In Internet Explorer, from the Tools menu, select Internet Options.

> In Control Panel, select Network And Internet Connections, and then select Internet

> The home page that Internet Explorer opens when you start the program

> How Internet Explorer stores temporary files while you surfed the browser

> How long Internet Explorer tracks the history of Web pages one have visited

> The general appearance of Internet Explorer and Web pages
