Internet Explorer: Recommended Settings

We recommend that you configure your web browser so that it will check for new versions of stored web pages each time you visit a page. This is especially important for students using VUSN’s online clinical log and should help minimize problems with VUMC’s Outlook VMail system.

IE settings 1

In the Settings window you will see four radio button choices.

Step 4

Click on the Advanced tab and scroll down to the Security section. Check the box: Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed. Then click the OK button.
