  • Hi,

    System Administrators would use GPEdit.msc to maintain those settings on a Network....

    Users use Internet Options....

    neither has to know the actual Registry keys, but you can find out using procmon.exe (Process Monitor) or reading the MSDN documentation.

  • Rob, valid point but not what I was asking for.

    I know I can use GPOs but is breaking other sites in my environment.

    I think I am all set.

    I downloaded Active Registry Monitor, took a snapshot of registry, made a change in IE and took another snapshot of the registry so I can compare it. And bingo, it is giving the reg key entries of the old entry and new entry.

    Also, as a reference I checked this website: http://networkdog.blogspot.com/2011/04/internet-explorer-9-configurations.html
