How to Add Trusted Sites

The Internet hosts millions of websites, though not all of them are good; some even have the potential to damage your computer through malicious files or scripts. By placing a website in the Trusted Sites category of Internet Explorer 11, you're letting the browser know that you trust this website not to damage your computer. With a trusted website, features such as file downloads, font downloads and scripting are active. You can add websites to the Trusted Sites security zone through the desktop version of Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.
