AcceleratorXML specifies the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for an Internet Explorer Accelerator.

Accelerators are menu options in Internet Explorer that help to automate common browser-related tasks. In Internet Explorer, when you right-click selected text, Accelerators appear in the list of available options. For example, if you select an address, you can use an Accelerator to show a map of that address.

To configure an accelerator, add an AcceleratorXML file to the local computer, and then reference it by using this setting. For more information about configuring accelerators, see this MSDN website.
