|Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Software > Internet Explorer > Appearance
By default Internet Explorer will show a friendly version of any HTTP errors it receives, for example Error 404 Page Moved. This tweak controls that functionality allowing it to be enabled or disabled.
Open your registry and find the key mentioned below.
Create a new string value, or modify the existing value, named 'Friendly http errors'. Modify the value to equal 'YES' to enable friendly errors or 'NO' to disable them.
Exit your registry and restart IE for the changes to take effect.
|(Default)||REG_SZ||(value not set)|
|Friendly http errors||REG_SZ||"Yes"|
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]|
Name: Friendly http errors
Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value: Yes or No
