Temporary Internet Files

Post by Bigaldoc »

This is a question about IE for multiple users on a domain.

If I change Internet Options, Advanced, Security tab by adding a tick mark to the option to empty temporary internet files when the browser closes, will that do so for all users on the domain? I have administrator "privileges."

I only occasionally work on a domain these days (at the nursing home) and don't know if Internet Options is global or per user. The machines all run XP and I haven't checked all but I think IE 8 is installed.

The ClearBrowsingHistoryOnExit registry entry is stored in HKEY_CURRENT_USER, so it's a user-level setting. Even if you tick the check box while using an account with administrator privileges, you only set it for that account.
Best wishes,
Hans

Thanks Hans and Leif. I'll pursue the GPEdit with the Sysops next time I'm over there.
