How to Disable Javascript in Internet Explorer

By | March 7, 2009

Today I will post a simple solution for Windows that allows you to disable Javascript. I suppose you have a clean installation of IE without any plugins, and this is the solution that really works.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.x, 6.x, and 5.x

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Select Internet Options from the Tools menu.
  3. In Internet Options dialog box select the Security tab.
  4. Click Custom level button at bottom right. The Security settings dialog box will pop up.
  5. Under Scripting category check Active Scripting, Allow paste options via script and Scripting of Java applets
  6. Unheck radio boxes.
  7. Click OK twice to close out.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x:

  1. Select Internet Options from the View menu
  2. click the Security tab
  3. click Custom
  4. click Settings
  5. scroll down to locate Scripting
  6. click Disable for Active Scripting
  7. click OK, then click the Reload button

Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x:

  1. Select Options from the View menu
  2. click Security
  3. check Disable Java Programs
  4. Click
  5. OK, then click the
  6. Reload button

Sometimes this is necessary to do, though I’d recommend to use Firefox or Opera if you need fast switching between JS and non-JS browsers.
