Original Title: I am using IE11 "iexplore.exe –extoff" but add-ons are not disabled...
I am trying to setup IE11 to sometimes use add-ons and sometimes not. Basically in order to get functionality as desired, one program requires the adobe add-on, while another program requires it to be off.
So I tried starting IE11 using the "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" shortcut, and it tells me that the add-ons have all been disabled, but they have not. The 2 indications that they are not are:
- When I click manage add-ons, the adobe add-on shows as enabled
- It is still opening pdfs in a new tab (which is driven by the adobe add-on and what I want to stop), but when I manually disable the add-on the pdf will open in my pdf viewer (outside of IE), which is what I want.
Manually toggling the add-on doesn't work as desired because the other program seems to require enabling the adobe add-on and the logging off the computer and then locking back on...I need more seamless switching (like using one shortcut for one program and another shortcut for the other program).
How do I get IE11 to run a shortcut with the add-ons disabled (when -extoff is not working), but only when I ask it to (so not a manual toggle which would effect all open IE windows?
