    Pros and cons of changing IE11 default deletion settings.


    For a few years now I've had IE delete its history on exit, but having just moved to W8.1 I thought I would see what the general consensus was on continuing with these settings.

    The day to day difference really comes down to deleting temp stuff every time the browser is closed vs letting it accumulate until I do a full clean of everything and re-import a cookie file which might be once a week give or take.

    First image shows the standard default IE11 clean-up settings. I alter these (and tick the "delete browsing history on exit" tickbox) to the following which get cleaned every time the browser closes.

    (Although "delete passwords" is ticked, it doesn't affect imported cookies i.e. I can close the browser and then revisit here for example, and all my log in data is preserved)


    Any thoughts ?
