Exploring Internet Explorer: Appearance

Sunday, December 11th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

These past few weeks, we’ve been taking a closer look at Internet Explorer. The popular browser has been around for a long time, but you may not be aware of all the features.  Today we’re going to check out how to change the appearance of the browser.

To make changes, you’ll need to click the little gear column in the upper-right and choose Internet Options from the drop-down menu.


Click the General tab.

Scroll down to appearance.


Your first option is Colors.


If you get rid of the check next to Use Windows colors, you can make changes to the look of Internet Explorer.


Click Languages and you’ll be able to add additional languages to Internet Explorer and arrange them in order of preference.


Choose Fonts, and you can switch both the style of fonts and the default fonts for pages and text when one is not already specified by the site.


Accessibility options allow you to ignore font and color options of particular websites or to upload your own stylesheet.


Click on Captions to decide the font style used for captions on videos. You’ll be able to control size, color, and transparency.


Make sure to apply any changes you make.
