Hi experts,


Is it possible to set the history and IE cache size in globally in either local policy or group policy?

Thanks,

It is possible with GPO and there is a walk through at this URL.

You might also try just deleting the IE cache when the browser is closed.
How to do it:
User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> From the "Action" tab (Upper left) select (Preference Mode) -> On the right pane select "Advanced" -> Internet Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Security -> Delete Saved Pages when browser closed
To control the IE Cache Size:
User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> (Preference Mode) -> Advanced -> Corporate Settings. Unfortunately my system is generating errors when I attempt to go past the Corporate settings selection but this should get you in the neighborhood.

That Cache size GPO link is great. I use it everywhere now.

Just be aware that you can't use it directly on Windows 2000. You will need an XP workstation with the management tools on it. Win2003 fine.
