Windows 7: IE8 Customisation Options On First Use

IE8 Customisation Options On First Use


Normally after a fresh install of Windows 7 I set the IE8 customisation options using the screen that appears when first opening IE8 after the install.

However, I accidentaly selected the "Ask Me Later" option on the screen rather than proceed through the various options. Is there anyway to get this screen back up so that I can configure these customisations.

I have manually made some changes such as disabling add-ons and compatability views etc, however, I cannot locate the option where it selects sending or not sending anonymous IE8 usage to microsoft.

Would anyone please be able to advise me if it is possible to get back to these customisations somehow?

Hi Auld Bint

Click on Tools Internet Options Go to Advance tab and hit restore/reset on both.

You will be given a dialogue box, just click yes and proceed.

Restart IE and you should be prompted with the Customization option.

Hope that helps.
