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 in Internet Explorer
1. Start IE with no add-ons.
The No Add-ons mode allows IE 8 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 IE8 with InPrivate mode
InPrivate mode does bot allow IE 8 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 IE8 with a specific URL
You can set IE 8 to start with specific url.
4. Start IE8 in kiosk mode
The Kiosk Mode in IE 8 is when the title bar, menus, toolbars & status bar are not displayed and IE 8 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>
