A. In the early days of the Web, images didn't appear automatically in browser windows because of bandwidth limitations. Instead, just a placeholder appeared. Today, you can configure Internet Explorer (IE) to show or hide images.
- Start IE.
- From the Tools menu, select Internet Options.
- Select the Advanced tab, and scroll down to the Multimedia section.
- Select or clear the Show pictures checkbox.
- Click Apply, then click OK. The change will take effect the next time you view a Web page.
