All copies of Microsoft Windows come with a default web browser called Internet Explorer, or IE. In your desktop, open the Internet Explorer. Once it is opened, click on “Tools”. The drop-down menu will show various options, select “Internet Options”. Once you click on “Internet Options”, a dialog box will appear. Among the tabs available, select the “Security Tab” and look for the Internet icon, click it and you will see several security levels which are listed, choose “Custom”.
There will be several security options with a corresponding checkbox. You need to uncheck the box next to the following: “Scripting of Java Applets”, “Download Unsigned ActiveX Controls”, and “Initialize and Script ActiveX Controls Not Marked as Safe”. Disabling these options will significantly minimize the data that the web browser has to download as well as make the browser more secure. As a result, you will have a browser that is more secure and opens web pages much quicker as well.
After all of that is done, return to the “Internet Options” menu and move the browser’s cache slider to increase its allocated hard drive space for storage of frequently accessed web page data. This way, every time you open your favorite website, you will not have to wait long for your browser to download all the web page data.
The browser can just access the needed web page data locally. Your browser will be much more efficient in loading frequently visited websites and open them in a much faster pace. In other words, you will no longer have to wait an eternity just to open a website that you just visited a few hours ago.
The next step is to access your C: drive by opening “My Computer”. Once you are in drive C:, click on “Documents and Settings” and click on the “Local Settings” folder. Find a folder labeled as “temp” and empty its contents. This is where all the temporary files are typically stored.
These methods will help you maximize your Internet connection speed. Hopefully, this guide on how to make your Internet faster has helped you make the most of the Internet speed that you have, although, if you really want a faster Internet connection, you may have to upgrade your current Internet speed.
