How to Disable Script Debugging in Internet Explorer

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

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

Step

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

Step

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

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

Look under the “Browsing” subhead.

Step

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

Step

Click "OK." Close the Control Panel window.
