If your default search engine or homepage has been changed, or you are having adware or pop-up ads problems with Internet Explorer, resetting it can help. The reset feature fixes many issues by restoring Internet Explorer to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs.

Resetting your browser settings will impact the settings below:

  • Default search engine and saved search engines will be reset and to their original defaults.
  • Homepage button will be hidden and the URL that you previously set will be removed.
  • Default startup tabs will be cleared. The browser will show a new tab when you startup or continue where you left off if you’re on an Internet Explorer book.
  • New Tab page will be empty unless you have a version of Internet Explorer with an extension that controls it. In that case, your page may be preserved.
  • Pinned tabs will be unpinned.
  • Content settings will be cleared and reset to their installation defaults.
  • Cookies and site data will be cleared.
  • Extensions and themes will be disabled.

You can reset Internet Explorer settings to return them to the state they were in when Internet Explorer was first installed on your PC.
