How to Change the Default Encoding in Internet Explorer 6


Internet browsers use character encoding settings to display the correct set of characters on a Web page. If foreign characters in a page do not appear correctly, you may need to change your browser's encoding setting. You can change the default encoding setting for Internet Explorer 6 from the pop-up menu that appears when you right-click inside a page.

  • Launch Internet Explorer 6 on your computer.

  • Right-click the background of any Web page, highlight "Encoding" and uncheck "Auto-Select." The "Auto-Select" feature will override your default encoding setting when Internet Explorer can determine the correct character set for a Web page.

  • Right-click the background of any Web page, highlight "Encoding" and highlight "More" to display a list of the available character sets.

  • Click the character set you want Internet Explorer to use as the default encoding.
