Disable IE Enhanced Security Configuration

Windows ServerI do a lot of work in virtual machines and this work often involves using the web browser; this is usually just for web client, SSRS or other similar local pages, but even then Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration will get in the way and need to be disabled.

I never remember where the setting for this is, so I am posting here to make it easy to find in future. To change the setting, open Server Manager; in the left pane, click Local Server:

Server Manager > Dashboard

In the main section of the page, click the word ON next to IE Enhanced Security Configuration:

Server Manager > Local Server

In the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration window, set both settings to Off (or perhaps only the Administators one depending on how you’re using the system) and click OK:

Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration

Close Server Manager and launch IE and the enhanced security mode will be disabled.

What should we write about next?
