Internet Feature Controls (Z)

Updated: February 2011

This article describes feature controls with names that begin with the letter Z. For links to other feature controls, see Feature Controls.

Zone Elevation

When enabled, the FEATURE_ZONE_ELEVATION feature prevents pages in one zone from navigating to pages in a higher security zone unless the navigation is generated by the user. Zone-specific settings are possible; for more information, see the URLACTION_FEATURE_ZONE_ELEVATION URL action flag.

By default, this feature is enabled for Windows Internet Explorer and for applications hosting the WebBrowser Control. To disable this feature by using the registry, add the name of your executable file to the following setting.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (or HKEY_CURRENT_USER)
   SOFTWARE
      Microsoft
         Internet Explorer
            Main
               FeatureControl
                  FEATURE_ZONE_ELEVATION
                     contoso.exe = (DWORD) 00000000

The feature is enabled when the value is set to (DWORD) 00000001 and disabled when the value is (DWORD) 00000000.

Zone Handling for Missing Files

When enabled, the FEATURE_RESTRICTED_ZONE_WHEN_FILE_NOT_FOUND feature manages the security context of URLs specified in local files. If a local URL specifies a file or directory that does not exist, the URL is loaded in the Restricted zone when opened.

By default, this feature is disabled for Internet Explorer and for applications hosting the WebBrowser Control. To enable this feature by using the registry, add the name of your executable file to the following setting.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (or HKEY_CURRENT_USER)
   SOFTWARE
      Microsoft
         Internet Explorer
            Main
               FeatureControl
                  FEATURE_RESTRICTED_ZONE_WHEN_FILE_NOT_FOUND
                     contoso.exe = (DWORD) 00000001

The feature is enabled when the value is set to (DWORD) 00000001 and disabled when the value is (DWORD) 00000000.

Zone String Loading

Windows Internet Explorer 7 and later. By default, Internet Explorer uses localized resource files to populate the names of the security zones in the user interface. When enabled, the FEATURE_READ_ZONE_STRINGS_FROM_REGISTRY feature allows applications to specify these strings in the registry.

By default, this feature is disabled for Internet Explorer and for applications hosting the WebBrowser Control. To enable this feature by using the registry, add the name of your executable file to the following setting.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (or HKEY_CURRENT_USER)
   SOFTWARE
      Microsoft
         Internet Explorer
            Main
               FeatureControl
                  FEATURE_READ_ZONE_STRINGS_FROM_REGISTRY
                     contoso.exe = (DWORD) 00000001

The feature is enabled when the value is set to (DWORD) 00000001 and disabled when the value is (DWORD) 00000000.

Note  Enabling this feature is strongly discouraged.
