How to Enable or Disable Toolbars and Extensions in Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing


information   Information
InPrivate doesn't clear any history or information about toolbars or browser extensions that is stored on your computer. To help protect your privacy, Internet Explorer disables all toolbars and extensions by default in an InPrivate Browsing window.

This will show you how to enable or disable toolbars and extensions for when you open an Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing window in Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

Note   Note
These toolbars and extensions are web browser add-ons that add features (for example, extra toolbars, animated mouse pointers, stock tickers, and pop-up ad blockers) to your Internet Explorer web browser.





OPTION ONE
Enable or Disable Toolbars and Extentions when InPrivate Starts

NOTE: This will allow you to enable or disable all of your current toolbars and extensions when you start a Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing window. You can still manually enable or disable a toolbar or extension that you would like to use in InPrivate Browsing if you like though using OPTION TWO below.
1. Do step 2 or 3 below for what you would like to do.

2. Open Internet Explorer, click/tap on Tools (Menu Bar or Command Bar or gear icon), and go to step 4 below.
NOTE: In Windows 8, this would only apply to the IE10 desktop version, and not the IE10 Metro (Windows UI) version.


3. Open the Control Panel (icons view), click/tap on Internet Options, click/tap on the Advanced tab, scroll down to the Security section, and go to step 4 below. (See screenshot below)

4. Click/tap on the Privacy tab, and do step 5 or 6 below for what you would like to do. (See screenshot below)
