How to Configure Security Sites in Internet Explorer 10 & 11

In Internet Explorer 10 & 11 you can no longer use the Internet Explorer Maintenance setting in Group Policy to make changes to the Browser Security Sites. This has changed in IE 10 to use Group Policy Preferences and ADM Policy Settings.

Use a Windows 2012 Server

To access the new features of Group Policy you will need to connect to the Domain from a Windows 8.x or Windows 2012 Server. Enable the Group Policy Management features and then open Group Policy Management.

Edit a Policy


Create or Edit an existing Group Policy and then drill down to UserPolicy\AdministrativeTemplates\WindowsComponents\InternetExplorer\InternetControlPanel\SecurityPage

Locate the Setting Site to Zone Assignment List

Edit Setting


Check to Enable the Setting. Click the Show button to add the sites required.

Add Sites


Sites that are entered here will be shown in the users browser under the Security Tab and Sites

1. Intranet Sites
2. Trusted Zone
3. Internet
4. Restricted Sites

To add a site enter the site URL on the left value and the Site Number value to the right.

Update User Browser


On the Users Computer run the command

gpudate /force

This will update the Group Policy. Then you can check the Browser Internet Options, Security Tab, Local Intranet Sites and then in the list will be the site you added.
