Immediately after installing Windows Server 2012, we will be trying to access the Internet Explorer, from there only we will be downloading other browsers and start working. But in that case, when we try with the Internet Explorer for the first time, the security settings will be very high by default on Windows Server 2012.

Even the Google site also, you need to add on the trusted sites, then only you will be able to access them. In that case, it will be hectic for the end user to add all these sites into trusted site. We will be trying to modify the Security settings on Internet Explorer. But it will not allow us to do so. Let us see, how to do that on this article.

When you try to modify the security settings,


The above screen will be coming. On the slider, you cannot modify. i.e., the slider will be disabled.

Steps to be followed

1. Go to Server Manager.


2. Select the IE Enhanced Security Configuration.


3. Turn it to Off.








Now, you can modify the Security Settings and proceed with browsing different sites.


Happy Coding.
