    Accelerate the scrolling pages : You have a mouse wheel and scrolling is slow when you're using Internet Explorer? And although it is possible to solve this problem once and for all! Go to the Tools menu, Internet Options. Go to the Advanced section. In Section Navigation, search and select the option to use smooth scrolling and validate the changes by clicking the Apply button.

    Change the page displayed when a site is not found : When Internet Explorer does not find the site you want to connect, it displays a blank page. To change this, click Start, then Run. Type Regedit and click OK. Go HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain then double click the value Local page. Then enter the full path of file to use. Confirm and exit Regedit.

    Remove the OK button in the address bar :Tired of seeing the OK button to the right of the address bar? Well, you can remove it! Clicking the right mouse button and uncheck the OK button.

    No more www. and. com : In Internet Explorer you want to go to http:// www. but you're tired of typing www. and. com! Just type "microsoft" and instead of pressing the Enter key while pressing the Ctrl key and press Enter, the browser will automatically add http:// www. and. com!

    IE does not properly connected to the launch : Go to the View menu and then Internet Options, select the Connections tab, check the box, connect to the Internet via a modem. Now click on Settings, a dialog box appears. Upstairs, there is a menu with the names of connections, select the name of the connection you want to use and click OK then click Apply and OK.

    Missing Status Bar
    The given registry file will correct this behavior, if your status bar disappears when opening a new IE browser window. However make sure that option is selected - right-click the top Toolbar and select: Status Bar. If you are still having problems verify the below Registry entries exist and are correct:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

    Multiple settings

    Set in the Internet Explorer settings from the first configuration ('1 ISP), then run REGEDIT. Choose Edit / Find and type "internet settings". Uncheck the boxes "Values" and "Data" and click NEXT. You should go to the tree HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREMICROSOFTWINDOWSINTERNET SETTINGS.

    Select the menu: Registry / Export Registry File. Select a location (preferably c: windows or c: winnt depending on the system) and select a name quite telling (exple: fournisseur1.reg). Now modify Internet Explorer settings to define the configuration of your second provider. Do the same way as before by running regedit. Save the portion of the registry under the name Fournisseur2.reg. Now create in c: windows (or c: winnt by your system) a first batch file containing the following statement: regedit / sc: windowsfournisseur1.reg save the batch file c: windowsfournisseur1.bat. Create a second batch file c: windowsfournisseur2.bat containing the following statement: regedit / sc: windowsfournisseur2.reg. Create shortcuts on the desktop for these 2 batch files. Now, any time you want to access the Internet through one or the other service providers, simply double-click the icon and launch your dial-up connection.
