How To Enable JavaScript In Internet Explorer

It is very easy to learn how to enable JavaScript in Internet Explorer, and the process only takes a few minutes. JavaScript is a programming language and it needs to be enabled to view a lot of webpages correctly. You won’t see certain things on a website if you do not have JavaScript enabled, and a lot of websites won’t work correctly without it. In this article you will learn how to enable JavaScript for Internet Explorer.

  1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking on the Internet Explorer (a large "e") icon on your desktop. If you don’t see the icon on your desktop, you can open it through the "Start" menu by looking under "All Programs."
  2. After Internet Explorer opens, click on "Tools" at the top right hand side of the window. After you click on "Tools" select "Internet Options."
  3. Click on the "Security" tab. Select the "Internet" icon. This icon looks like a globe.
  4. Click on "Custom Level" and a "Security Settings – Internet Zone" window will open. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and look for "Scripting."
  5. The first thing listed under "Scripting" is "Active Scripting." Choose "Enable."
  6. Click "OK." Click "OK" on the next screen.
  7. Press F5 on your keyboard to refresh Internet Explorer. You can also close and reopen Internet Explorer to refresh it. JavaScript is now enabled.

That is all you need to do to enable JavaScript in Internet Explorer. If you ever want to disable it, all you need to do is go back through these steps again, but choose to disable instead of enable.
