How to enable JavaScript on your computer system

  • JavaScript is a standard programming language for the World Wide Web. JavaScript programs are downloaded along with Web pages and run on your computer to provide functionality such as menus, sounds, and other interactive features. By default, Firefox enables the use of JavaScript on your computer system and requires no additional installation. However, JavaScript can also be used to do things that some users find undesirable. While the JavaScript settings in Firefox are configured to provide a safe experience on the web, they can be reviewed and changed. Web programmers can include JavaScript programs to make using their Web pages easier. JavaScript can enable links, edit data, help you fill in forms, and do many other useful things. Most complex sites, like Internet e-commerce and banking sites, use JavaScript.

    JavaScript is fundamentally safe. While designing JavaScript the programmers omitted the ability to write to your disc thereby making sure that your computer is not damaged. JavaScript has been accused of altering the page layout and opening unwanted windows on the screen but these are not hindrances when we take into account that they don’t damage our system in any manner. These little things are annoying, but Modern browsers can intercept and prevent the worst of the annoyances.

    In Microsoft Internet Explorer enabling JavaScript also enables VB Script, Microsoft's proprietary Web scripting language. VB Script does not have the inherent safety features of JavaScript. For that reason, if you use Internet Explorer, you may want to leave VB Script (and JavaScript) turned off unless you need it. Only Internet Explorer can run VB Script programs within the browser. If you use any browser other than Internet Explorer, you do not need to worry about this.

    To enable JavaScript on your system please follow the steps in a sequential manner:

             1. Select the "Tools" menu
             2. Select "Internet Options..."
             3. Click on the "Security" tab.
             4. Click on the "Custom Level."
             5. Select the "Scripting" section.
             6. Enable (with the radio button) "Active Scripting."
             7. Click "OK."

    I think now you have finished everything and Javascript is enabled on your computer system .
