We have problems with Sharepoint 2013 in combination with excelfiles that have special characters in it's Filename.
SInce last week after installing a update (KB2920730) all files containing a special character in it's filename can't be edited when opening with Internet Explorer!
Crazy Thing is, when I do the same thing with Firefox I can edit the file without Problems? Any Suggetions?

I seem to be having an issue with TLS connections. I attempt to browse to a site and I receive the following error:

"This page can’t be displayed

Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to  again. If this error persists, it is possible that this site uses an unsupported protocol or cipher suite such as RC4 (link for the details), which is not considered secure. Please contact your site administrator."

The requested TLS settings are already enabled in IE11. I do have another server in the same OU and that server works fine. I have also verified that the SCHANNEL reg settings match on both servers so the ciphers should be the same.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
i have a win7 PC with ie11.
how to let ie11 compactibility view add a site (for example:,  add it once for all users, without every new user have to do that by herself?
Hello Experts,

I want to apply   some configuration changes to IE11 via GPO.
With using administrative templates, I'm beginning to see daylight for almost settings.

But I could not find  setting for Cookie in the templates.

What I want to set is as below,

As for Cookie,
Always accept Session Cookie
First Party:accept
Third Party:accept

Are there any other template for those setting, Or Do I need to describe registry key  directly on GPEditor ?

Best regards

We received some windows updates in the last 2 days on our dell servers some running windows server 2008 R2 and others are running Windows server 2012. After the updates, the location of the temp Internet files have disappeared which was under internet options -general tap - setting. As a result most of our web-based apps are not running. Has any one seen this , what is the update that causes this to happen.

Thank you
Hello Experts, page is appearing blank, with white screen. I have done the following things: reset the IE, add the URL in compatibility settings, add the URL in trusted sites list. But No luck. Please share you experience if you have come across this issue and resolved successfully.


We are having a issue when uploading documents into SharePoint 2016 from another SharePoint 2016 location using the upload function. When we try to upload a document by browsing to the file location, the url of the source document library is pasted in the windows explorer window and when a document is selected, a script error is showing, any ideas what could be causing this? Although I don't believe it's a good practice to browse to another SP location using this method, but I am pretty sure it was working at some point...

Thank you

Cyber security certifications or degree?

Cyber security is in demand—big-time. So what do you need to build a career in this lucrative field? Is a degree a must-have, or are industry-leading certifications more sought-after? Is it possible to break into cybersecurity without a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the field?

Hello this is my cod  for a test page

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

	$(document).ready(function() {

		catch(e) {}
		document.getElementById("windowFileReader").innerHTML = suport_fileReader;
		document.getElementById("modernizrDragnDrop").innerHTML = Modernizr.draganddrop; */
	async function inLoop() {
	 var startTime =;
	 while (( - startTime) < 3000) {
	  console.log("In Loop ", ( - startTime) )
	function secFunc(){

Open in new window

1) I am expected that alert 2 will come before the alert 1 because the async  -
2) on IE11 async function inLoop() get error

I have long script that give a not responding for some time  i thought to use async   that the problematic function will run on the background - this is possible?

I am having an issue with a Group Policy setting for Internet Explorer.  I am setting Use an automatic configuration script via reg key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL.  The policy applies fine, but during the GP refresh, the setting become unchecked and will not reapply until IE is closed and re-opened.  I did a GPResult/RSOP and there is no other GPs dealing with that setting.  Unfortunately this causes users to lose Internet access.  Has anyone experienced this issue?
refer to attached:

I've set to start IE  loading last session's tabs:
however, when rebooting PC or under certain unknown
conditions, the last tabs were not loaded & got a fresh
IE tab instead.

With Chrome, when PC is rebooted or force terminate
the browser, I'll still get the last session's tabs.

What else is missing for my IE?
Hello experts,

One of instances are both IE and chrome (both on VDI and physical machine), goes to page isn't working if it stays for a certain period of time.


Thanks a lot.
I am saving an excel 2010 spreadsheet (XLSX) to HTM page but the hidden columns in the spreadsheet are no longer hidden when displaying the HTM.
I managed to get the hidden columns to hide by changing the style to style="Display:None" but this no longer works for some reason.

Is there any way for me to re-hide the columns when saving as a HTM file?
We are experiencing IE 11 Crashing or what it says is Stopped when a few of our users that use State Tax Forms websites the get down to the PDF's and when they click on the PDF they need to view and it crashes IE11 or like I said it stops working.

what is  the best way to handle this scenario, i was advised to addsome custom text something like" turn-off compatiblility mode" ,

Please suggest. Also is there any international site wish support the content in different languages French\German\English\Spanish  etc.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
I am trying to reach the following site  I looked up the IP and it's however, it's timing out.  I am behind a watchguard firewall and I've added it every place I could think of and it's still not resolving.  I have a wireshare but I can't really read it.  If I try this on my guest network outside of my firewall it works just fine.

I try to automate some handling on a webpage. I have read all the articles I could find, but it just does not fit.

This is partial the webpage:

Transaction page
This is the HTML beneath:

<div class="rgWrap rgArrPart2">
<a title="Go to Next Page" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00j','')">Volgende</a>
<input type="submit" name="ctl003" value=" " title="Next Page" class="rgPageNext" /> 
<a title="Go to Last Page" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl004','')">Laatste</a>
<input type="submit" name="ctl005" value=" " title="Last Page" class="rgPageLast" />

Open in new window

"Volgende" en "Laatste" are Dutch for "Next" and "Last".

The code which I try to build needs to click on the "Volgende" so I get the next page with records.

I have tried the following code:


    GetElementsByTagName() and filter by value:

    Set oInputs = IE.Document.GetElementsByTagName("input")
    For Each elm In oInputs
        If elm.Value = "Go to Next Page" Then
            Exit For
        End If

Open in new window


    For Each elem In IE.Document.GetElementsByClassName("rgPageNext")
        If elem.innerText = "Go to Next Page" Then
        End If

Open in new window

   GetElementsByTagName() and filter by class attribute:

    For Each a In IE.document.getElementsByTagName("a")
        If a.GetAttribute("class") = "rgPageNext" Then
            Exit For
        End If

Open in new window

   GetElementsByTagName() and filter by title attribute:

    For Each a In IE.document.getElementsByTagName("a")
      If a.getAttribute("title") = "Go to Next Page" Then
        Exit For
      End If

Open in new window

The first approach gives this error message:

    Script: K:\temp\TT\mftt.vbs
    Line: 37
    Char: 2
    Error: Object required: 'IE.Document.getElementByID(...)'
    Code: 800A01A8
    Source: Microsoft VBScript runtime error

Open in new window

The other attempts are not giving error messages but also no reaction on the link to click. I'm missing here the OnClick event. With other links in this project the OnClick event was present. I can't change the HTML, so I'm stuck.

UPDATE1: I have added the script file so far. I have not attempt to build the logic. First aim is to read all the fields and click the right buttons. If that is successful I will build the iteration process,
UPDATE2: due to privacy reasons I can't give you access to the site. I have added the DOM from the page and removed any names.
Everyone in our organisation has a Delve profile, and we want to link directly to these from other locations or documents. The first difficulty we had was in coming up with a link that we could easily modify/replicate - the standard form url looks something like:,*** Email address is removed for privacy ***&v=profiledetails

This will open from an internet page or a website, but if I try to link from a Word document, not only does it not work, but it also gives me an enormously frustrating error message which consists of a cartoon cat and a correlation id, also i can see that the link got redirected,

Redirected as :
Something went wrong :(
Correlation Id: 7eecefc7-7f0e-458d-a66d-47387873a125

In Internet Explorer, after adding "" link to trusted site resolved the issue, but when the Chrome is set as default browser we still have the issue.
Does anyone have a solution to this issue, kindly help me as soon as possible

One of our clients is running an application under APP-V. Their app invokes our ActiveX Client which is essentially a container for an IE browser control; the webpage that occupies it carries a link that executes "" (jQuery). Users are reporting 'Class not registered' errors.

I've seen a plethora of 'solutions', e.g. re-registering DLLs, running SFC, checking APP-V setting Allow All COM objects to interact with the local system, but no luck yet. This is on Win7 and Win 10 machines. Alas, I have limited knowledge of APP-V.

This error does not occur outside of APP-V.
I am trying to allow a url to be accessed by a 2012 R2 server
It is giving:
The connection to '' failed.
Error: TimedOut (0x274c).
System.Net.Sockets.SocketException A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.....

This url is accessible from PC's in the company, so it's localized to that server.
Windows Firewall is NOT turned on
Other url's DO work from this server(IE 11)
I MUST to load COINSQUARE.COM on Windows and any Internet Explorer.

On most  configurations you get a WHITE screen.
(what do you get)

Coinsquare support says they are aware of the problem
and are trying to fix it and recommend using another browser.

We MUST use IE as we use the disability features and CANNOT switch browsers.
We cannot wait for Coinsquare as its been months now.

I have tried dozens of computers and configurations and cannot get even one to work, I  know some do!

Some of the things we have tried:
Windows all versions over 7
IE 8,9,10,11

I have played with-
compatibly modes
Java updates
Java script enabled
trusted sites
active x and Java configurations
protected mode
add ons
restores, reset and re installations.

I cannot get even one to work, we know from Coinsquare some do!.
I'm looking for the secret  OR  any type of
solution i can implement on any machine with any Windows Environment.

I need to LOAD on Internet Explorer!.
Preferably on IE 11, windows 10  but any solution will do.

Any help would very appreciated.
Error when accessing SharePoint externally via Internet Explorer with URL in Local Intranet Zone Internet Explorer

After a migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016, users accessing SharePoint externally using Internet Explorer receive the error;

The connection to the website was reset.

I have isolated it to having the URL “” added to the “Local Intranet” Zone in Internet Explorer.

Users that are internal/VPN or that are using Chrome, are not impacted.

If I remove our SharePoint from the Local Intranet zone, we lose our Single Sign on and everybody in the agency has the enter their credentials every time to access SharePoint.

I confirmed that we are not having this issue in our 2013 environment.
