How to make Internet explorer 10 fast in Windows 8?

Here I am sharing titbits about making Internet Explorer 10 faster.

Speed up IE 10

Like all other versions of Windows, Microsoft gives Internet Explorer with Windows 8 Pro. This time the version number is 10. Though it comes with two different costumes, one in the Start Menu and another in the Desktop, these two are basically same. In spite of many improvements made by Microsoft, still it lags somewhere in the race of popular browsers. That the speed of it. The accessing speed is quite slower than other browsers. Though the security of Internet Explorer 10 is the best among all browsers, but slow speed spoils it in a great extent. It may also happen that, initially it was fast, but currently its running slow. Here are some tweaks that will help you to make Internet Explorer 10 faster. With a better speed and security of course it can be your favourite browser replacing the old one. Check the tricks at the steps given below.

Different ways to make Internet Explorer 10 fast:


A. Clean temporary files and history

If you don’t clean your computer’s history for a long time, then it may slow the speed of
Internet explorer. So it’s better to clean in a periodic manner at least I will suggest that.

Step 1. Press Alt + X to open tools tab in
Internet Explorer
and navigate to Internet Options -> General -> Delete.

click on delete

Step 2. Select all or the unnecessary ones and delete them.

select items to delete

B. Disable Add-Ons

Many applications comes with their custom add-ons and most are not used and yet consume time
and memory. If you remove some/all of these add-ons, it will definitely increase the speed.

Step 1. Navigate to Tools -> Manage Add-Ons.

click on manage add on

Step 2. Select the add-ons which are not required and disable them.

disable add on

When you are done, click on close to close the window.

C. Increase maximum number of connections

In Internet Explorer 10, has increased the upper limit for maximum connections per server to 10(Internet Explorer 7 had 2 and Internet Explorer 8 had 6). Increasing this number to use it fully will make the Internet Explorer 10 downloads more threads of a page and display it faster.

Step 1. Press Windows + R to open the Run window. Type regedit and hit Enter to open the registry editor.

open regedit from run window

Step 2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Microsoft->Windows->CurrentVersion->Internet Settings.


Step 3. Right click on the white space and select New->DWORD(32-bit) Value.

create new dword

Step 4. Change the New Value #1 to MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server. Select Decimal and write 10 in the Value data.

edit with new value

D. Defragment of Hard disks

Defragging the system Hard Disk in a periodic manner will improve the overall experience of the user.
