Q. I'm having very slow performance in Windows 10 Internet Explorer when connecting to certain HTTPS sites. Is there anything I can do to speed this up?
A. In using Windows 10 Internet Explorer I found certain web sites loaded very slowly. The solution was to disable TLS 1.2 in IE:
- Open Internet Explorer
- Open the Internet Options (click the gear icon at the top right or press Alt + T) from the menu
- Select the Advanced tab
- Scroll down to the Security section
- Uncheck Use TLS 1.2
- Click OK
TLS stands for Transport Layer Security and is the successor to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). By disabling TLS 1.2 it will mean TLS 1.1 will be used instead.
