How to: Install Add-ons to Internet Explorer

It’s easy to customize Internet Explorer by using Add-ons to enhance your browser’s functionality. Microsoft provides a library of options for IE from blogging to finance to shopping. To install an Add-on to Internet Explorer, follow these steps:

1. Go to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Gallery and select an Add-on from the site.

2. Download the file and follow the on-screen instructions. Some Add-ons may require you to restart your browser after installation.

3. In IE, select Tools -> Manage Add-ons. This menu provides detailed information about each extension.If you need to disable an Add-on, click on the Name, then select the Disable button in the bottom right-side of the menu box.

The Manage Add-on menu also has some other useful functions. Accelerators are a new feature of IE that can give you quick access to common menu items by simply selecting a word on a web page.

The InPrivate Filtering option helps to regulate unauthorized tracking of your browsing activities. You can activate InPrivate Filtering using the Safety menu on the Command Bar.
