You can use GPOs to customize the Advanced settings and some Temporary Internet Files settings.

An Administrator must first set the Group Policy to Preference Mode:

1. Open the Group Policy Editor.

2. Navigate to User Configuration / Windows Settings / Internet Explorer Maintenance.

3. Right-click Internet Explorer Maintenance and press Preference Mode, as the Figure shows.

NOTE: If the policy is already defined, you must press Reset Browser Settings before you can place the policy in Preference Mode. This will reset any policies that were previously specified.

NOTE: If an Administrator wishes to restrict users from changing any Advanced settings, they can apply restrictions using the Administrator Templates.
