Disable script debugging in Internet Explorer

After you have installed the Dashboard Screen Manager, it is important that you make sure script debugging is disabled. Otherwise, a debugging program will pop-up and could crash the Dashboard. By default, script debugging is disabled, but if you are unsure or know that you have it enabled, you can check this setting in Internet Explorer.

To disable script debugging in Internet Explorer:

  1. Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools > Internet Options. The Internet Options dialog appears.
  2. Select the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down and check the Disable Script Debugging (Internet Explorer) and the Disable Script Debugging (Other) options.
  4. Click OK to save changes.
