I want to write a small, lean, web browser using the VB6 WebBrowser component. It seems to use the IE5 directories for cookies, history and cache.

Is there any way to tell it where to put cookies and all the other stuff that goes into the 'Temporary Internet Files' directory structure, so that a user can choose the location of these files?

You must call the underlaying application, and that is the
IE5.
The WebBrowser control has no interfaces for do that
