To enhance your surfing experience, Internet Explorer on Windows has some rather useful command-line arguments. Let us take a look at them:
Command Line arguments for Internet Explorer
1. Start IE with no add-ons
The No Add-ons mode allows IE to temporarily run without any addons like toolbars, ActiveX controls, etc. It is very useful when you want to troubleshoot a problem like say freezing of your IE, to identify whether it is related to any add-on.
2. Start IE with InPrivate mode
InPrivate mode does bot allow IE to store data about your browsing session. This includes cookies, temporary Internet files, history, and other data. Toolbars & extensions are disabled by default.
3. Start IE with a specific URL
You can set IE to start with a specific URL.
4. Start IE in kiosk mode
The Kiosk Mode in IE 8 is when the title bar, menus, toolbars & status bar are not displayed and IE runs in Full Screen mode.
If you simply run
iexplore.exe -k you will be faced with a fully blank page. Hence one should run to start it with a specific url.
iexplore.exe -k <URL>
Hope this helps.
