There are a number of different options you can configure from the Internet Options window for Internet Explorer, such as LAN and security settings. You can access the dialog box by opening the Internet Options applet within the Control Panel or by clicking Tools then Internet Options within Internet Explorer.
If you find yourself frequently accessing the Internet Options dialog box, you may want to place a shortcut to it on your desktop. You can do so by opening the Control Panel, right clicking the Internet Options applet, and clicking Create Shortcut. Click Yes to have a shortcut placed on the desktop. Now all you have to do is click the shortcut to access the Internet options.
From the Internet Options dialog box, you can use the Security tab to adjust your security settings. Now you can access this tab using the methods described above. Or, if you are in Internet Explorer, you can access this tab more quickly by clicking on the small globe icon in the right hand corner of the browser. A dialog box containing only the Security tab will appear. [Diana Huggins]
