How to use custom CSS with Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer allows you to change the default styles that it uses to display web pages, via CSS.  You can apply your own style sheet, or one made by someone else.  This feature is handy if you want to disable images or audio/video elements, among other things.  (Note that the results of your style sheet may vary depending on how different web sites are configured.)

To apply a custom style sheet to Internet Explorer:

- Click the Settings button (with the gear icon) in the upper right corner of the browser window
- Select Internet options
- Click the Accessibility button on the bottom of the first tab (General)
- Click the box next to "Format documents using my style sheet"
- Click Browse
- Navigate to the style sheet you want to use (must be saved as a .css file)
- Click Open
- Click OK
- Click OK

These instructions were written specifically for Internet Explorer 11, but they should apply to other versions as well.  (Some of the steps may vary slightly.)
