Reset IE10 to Its Default State

By November 30, 2012

Follow me on:

There are many things in life for which a reset button could come in handy. Wouldn't it be nice if you could retake that final exam? How about that decision to bet against the Giants in last season's Super Bowl? Life usually doesn't work that way, however, and we have to face the consequences of our missteps.

Fortunately for IE10 users, there is such a mechanism in place to fix your mistakes with just a few mouse clicks. Microsoft's newest browser allows you to customize dozens of settings, tweaking its behavior in several different ways. Unfortunately, with this ability to change things also comes the ability to break them. Even the most experienced Web surfers can occasionally find their browser in an apparent state of disrepair.

Rather than face the unenviable - and sometimes impossible - task of uninstalling and reinstalling IE10, follow our step-by-step tutorial to restore the browser to its default factory settings.
