Ever been on PC where Internet Explorer was blocked? One solution would be to use a portable version of Firefox on a USB drive, or you can access a hidden browser in Microsoft HTML Help program if removable media is not an option. This was tested on Windows XP SP2 with Internet Explorer 6.
- Open calculator. You can do this quickly with Windows button+R on your keyboard, type â€˜calcâ€™ in the run box, click OK.
- In Microsoft Calculator go to Help -> Help Topics.
- Now right click on the left hand side of the title bar and click on â€˜Jump To URL..â€™.
- Type in the URL including the â€˜http://â€™ and off you go. Repeat to visit other sites.
Essentially this is Internet Explorer embedded inside of the HTML Help application. Adobe Flash isnâ€™t working in my hidden browser, but a quick visit to Adobe took care of it. Take care and look for my post in the near future on how to block Internet Explorer from running on your Windows PC.
