Even there a lot of different web browsers can be chosen by you. Internet Explorer still shares a large market. As IE users, you may need to know all the tips of using this web browser, especially the security tips. Last time, we introduced 6 tips to make Internet Explorer more secure. Here, a new tip will be added – how to enable Full Restricted Mode in Internet Explorer web browser.
Full Restricted mode is a hidden secret mode present in IE which can restrict users from accessing menus, toolbar buttons, Internet option, etc in the browser window. It's different from a built-in "Full Screen Mode" in Internet Explorer, which works like a guest mode in IE. Users can't access any option, menu or toolbar button. They can only use some basic keyboard shortcuts to open webpages, save pages, close tabs, etc.
Once you enable Full Restricted mode, no toolbar or menubar is visible in Internet Explorer window. User can see only titlebar in IE window. This mode can be very useful for organizations which want their employees or users to access only a particular webpage and want to restrict them from accessing other websites or using menus and options in IE.
