How to Disable Script Debugging in Internet Explorer

By Brenda Sanders

Script debugging is used to find and fix mistakes in scripts or programming language, in this case for Internet Explorer. When a script error occurs, a window will pop up and ask you if you want to debug. Instead of having to choose "no" every time, you can simply disable script debugging by following these simple instructions.

Step 1

Click once on the Start menu button, which is located in the taskbar.

Step 2

Find the Control Panel. Click once on it. The Control Panel window will pop up.

Step 3

Click twice on “Internet Options.” The Internet Properties window will pop up. You will see seven tabs. In order, the tabs will be labeled “General," “Security," “Privacy,” “Content,” “Connections,” “Programs” and “Advanced."

Step 4

Click once on the "Advanced" tab. Under Settings, you will see a large rectangle with attached arrows on the right side and at the bottom. You will use these arrows to scroll up, down, to the right or to the left. Browsing with the arrows will allow you to see which Internet options you can change, reset, enable or disable. Inside this same rectangle will be a list of options, with a subhead above each.

Step 5

Look under the “Browsing” subhead.

Step 6

Check the “Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)” box.

Step 7

Click "OK." Close the Control Panel window.
