How to Create an "IE10 (No Add-ons)" Shortcut in Windows 8

information   Information
Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) mode is primarily a troubleshooting tool to help determine if you have a bad add-on installed in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) loads Internet Explorer with all add-ons, such as ActiveX controls or toolbars, turned off.

This tutorial will show you how to create or download a Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) shortcut that opens IE10 (desktop) with add-ons turned off mode in Windows 8.

Note   Note
Add-ons, also known as ActiveX controls, browser extensions, browser helper objects or toolbars, can improve your experience on a website by enabling content such as high-quality animations. However, some add-ons can also malfunction or display content that you don't want, such as pop-up ads.

When an add-on, such as a toolbar, is installed on your computer, it becomes part of your browser and operating system. In some cases these programs might contain spyware. In the worst case, a malfunctioning add-on might affect the performance of your computer or cause problems accessing the Internet.

To have a IE10 (No Add-ons) shortcut that opens directly to a specific website, you can add the website's address after -extoff. For example, to have it open to Eight Forums, I would use this location:

Code:
"%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff [URL]http://www.eightforums.com/[/URL]
