Computer Repair Topics: How To Reset Your Browsers  

Historically, Internet browsers have been relatively trouble-free. Over time, this has changed. Browsers become bogged down with add-ons that perform useful functions, but drain system resources and commonly get quite buggy over time. It’s also common to end up with unwanted tool bars that seem next-to-impossible to remove. Be cautious when downloading software online. Sometimes, it’s best to start from a clean slate. Fortunately, the major browsers provide options for returning to a default state without losing your bookmarks. You might be apprehensive, but the solution is quite simple and easy to implement. While each browser has a unique set of steps, there’s a lot of similarity.

Internet Explorer (IE)   Internet Explorer can be reset to the default settings quite easily. In Windows 8:  

1.       Open IE and click on the gear icon at the top right.

2.       Choose “Internet Options”

3.       Click on the “Advanced” tab.

4.       Click on “Reset…” button near the bottom.   

The reset process is similar on other versions of Windows. 

This will erase the settings for the pop-up management, security, privacy, and browser. In addition, you can also click the “Delete personal settings” box with will reset the search providers and home page. It will also delete the cookies, history, and temporary files. Both option leave you feeds and favorites intact. You will lose passwords saved in IE, however. Your computer will have to be restarted before the changes take effect.  

Google Chrome Chrome also has a reset option, but it’s a little more challenging to find.

1.       Open the menu by clicking on the top right of the browser. The icon looks like 3 lines stacked on each other.

2.       Click on “Settings”

3.       You’ll then have to use the search bar at the top and search for “reset browser”

4.       Scroll down and find/click “reset browser settings”  

This will remove your extensions, history, home page, cookies, settings, and default search engine. It will leave your bookmarks and passwords alone.

Mozilla Firefox Firefox has a similar reset process.

1.       From the browser, click on the Firefox menu button on the top left.

2.       Point to “Help” and then click on “Troubleshooting Information”

3.       From that page, click on “Reset Firefox”

This will erase the extensions and themes, site-specific preferences, and browser settings and preferences. Your cookies, history, passwords, and bookmarks will be saved. A new profile is created, but your old profile is saved and can be found on your desktop in a folder named “Old Firefox Data”. If you find that you’ve lost important data, you should be able to salvage the situation with that folder. Every once in a while, it’s nice to hit the reset button and start from scratch. If your browser is giving you fits, this might be the best solution. It’s common to find unwanted extensions making changes to your search function and homepage. These common happen when downloading software. Be sure you’re reading all the windows during the installation process. Many of these unwanted add-ons can be avoided simply by paying attention.
