Internet Explorer’s Enhanced Security should be off

happens that to perform some tasks you need to use the Internet Explorer browser, but in server versions of the operating system, its functionality is severely limited by .

We’ll figure out how to fix it.

On the taskbar, click on the “ Server Manager ” icon .

In the window that opens, on the left side, click on “ Local Server ”, and in the main part of the window, on the link “ Enabled ” opposite “ Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration ”.

In the new window, disable the option for administrators and users. We click on the OK button. The window will close.

In the previous window, after a few seconds, the setting will change to “Disabled”. You may need to refresh the contents of the window.

The operation to enable the parameter should be done in reverse order.

Alternative way to solve – use PowerShell

Opening a PowerShell window

Insert the into it (right-click in the window).

function Disable-IEESC { 
$AdminKey = “HKLM:SOFTWAREMicrosoftActive SetupInstalled Components{A509B1A7-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}” 
$UserKey = “HKLM:SOFTWAREMicrosoftActive SetupInstalled Components{A509B1A8-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}” 
Set-ItemProperty -Path $AdminKey -Name “IsInstalled” -Value 0 
Set-ItemProperty -Path $UserKey -Name “IsInstalled” -Value 0 
Stop-Process -Name Explorer 
Write-Host “IE Enhanced Security Configuration (ESC) has been disabled.” -ForegroundColor Green } 

We execute it by pressing the Enter key (sometimes a double press is required).

Internet Explorer is now running normally.
