Speed Up Internet Explorer Loading and Browsing Speeds

Like Firefox, Internet Explorer is very slow to load pages. There are various reasons for this: the number of simultaneous connections that IE makes with the server is limited and it also keeps searching for network shares and printers. Here are some registry tweaks to Speed up Internet Explorer and significantly improve your Internet browsing experience.


In the Registry editor, go to


RemoteComputer/NameSpace/{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} and delete the key named Printers. That ought to do the trick.

For opening up to 16 simultaneous connections with the remote server, and hence pushing your speeds up considerably, you need to modify (or create, if they don’t exist) two values in the registry. Go to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\InternetSettings and check these two DWORD values:

MaxConnectionPer1_0Server and MaxConnectionsPerServer.


Change their values to 0000010 and 00000010 respectively. After doing the customary restart you will notice increase in browsing speeds.
