How to Reset Web Browser (IE, Firefox and Chrome)

sometimes when a web browser stops working
properly for example if you’re on YouTube
and you’re watching a video and the video
is green but you can still hear the audio
it is necessary to reset a web browser now
the problem with the video could be caused
by Adobe flash player but that might not be the case and this is an easy test to see
if that would fix the problem that you’re
having whether it be with video or not today
I’m going to show you how to reset Internet
Explorer, Firefox and Chrome to their default
settings what this will do is wipe out any
settings that have been set by the user and
restore a lot of other things to like appearances,
toolbars and any settings that the user has
changed them self there will be links in the
video description to text instructions on
how to do this there will also be time stamps
to each different web browser so you can click
them and skip ahead for Internet Explorer
you can right click the start button depending
on your version of Windows or go to the control
panel in the control panel open internet options
click on the advanced tab and right here near
the bottom it says reset now you would click
reset and then it asks you what you want to
reset and if you want to delete your personal
settings so you put a check mark in delete
personal settings and then you click reset
and then you click close now you will have
to restart your computer after restarting
your computer you will have to go back into
the control panel and internet options and
add back your homepage and change any other
settings that you have changed for the most
part at least for me I leave most of the settings
default for Mozilla Firefox you open Mozilla
Firefox in the address bar here you type about
colon support and then hit enter and right
here in the top right corner you can see it
says refresh Firefox or restart with add-ons
disabled with add-ons disabled that it just
considered safe mode that doesn’t affect your
settings if you hit refresh Firefox that will
reset all of the Firefox settings to default
in the link provided in the video description
you can also delete the preference files and
that may help too once you open Firefox after
deleting the preference files they’ll be re-created
and then you can readjust your settings you
do not have to restart your computer when
you do this with Firefox for Google Chrome
you open Google Chrome you go to the top right
hand corner here and you click on customize
and control Google Chrome settings and then
you click on show advanced settings and here
where it says reset settings it says restore
settings to their original defaults which
means right after installation no user has
changed the settings and then you just click
reset settings and it tells you that everything
will be restored to default your homepage,
new tab page, search engine, extensions, unpin
all tabs it will also clear out any browser
data so then you just click reset and after
you do that you just close Chrome and then
open it again and then set your preferences
the way you prefer resetting your web browser
can help troubleshoot some problems that you’re
having with your web browser for example if
there’s poor video playback or another issue
and the best thing to do is after resetting
your browser is to slowly enable all of the
settings if you have an idea of what might
be causing it maybe leave that for the last
to re-enable it and then go from there
