Windows 7: Cannot add trusted site in IE 10 (greyed out)

Cannot add trusted site in IE 10 (greyed out)

Hello,

I am running windows 7 64 bit with IE 10 (it started in IE 8) and when I go to add a site to the trusted sites the add button is greyed out. I tried not logging into the domain and logging in as another account that is an admin on the machine. I also tried:


User Config>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Internet Control Panel>Security Page
- In there the 'Site to Zone Assignment List' was Enabled and in the properties there's a Show button. Click the Show button allows you to add the website and the value, which for my requirements was '2' for Trusted Site.

I also tried:

Cannot add websites to Trusted Sites using IE 8 or 9 - the Add button is not greyed out

TIA

Hello Don, and welcome to Seven Forums.

By default, only sites that have "https" in the address are able to be added as a trusted site unless you uncheck the Require server verification (https: ) for all sites in the zone box to also allow "http" sites to be added.

Internet Explorer Security Zones - Add or Remove Sites

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ah, it's completely disabled. Sounds like a group policy setting. Since you have Windows 7 Home Premium that doesn't include group policy, check the registry location below.

See:
IE Security Zones - Enable or Disable to Add/Remove Sites

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Next, post a screenshot showing what DWORD values you have in the right pane of Internet Settings like below. The culprit would most likely be the Security_zones_map_edit DWORD value that needs to be deleted, and possibly may need to restart the computer to apply.
