  1. privacy alerts re: allow cookies


    Once again I'm constantly receiving the privacy alert asking to allow or block cookies. The pop-up box does not allow me to check to be certain how the cookie options is set. in IE or Edge browsers I use. After several years of trying I still do not understand what are "cookies" (what a childish word in an electronic era). Cannot understand which option to use: allow, block, or block third parties. Don't really understand what "third parties' is referring to also. Please enlighten me. I am the sole user of a desktop pc using windows 10 version 1809(I did not download v. 1903). I'm also far too old to be playing with these things, but keep trying. HELP!

    :)

    Meanwhile, try the below methods and see if this helps.

    Method 1: Allow Cookies on Internet Explorer.

    If you are trying to allow the cookies on Internet Explorer, then you can follow the section

  3. message pops up: Privacy alert: website asking to save file

    * Merged

    * Original title: Privacy Alerts message on screen does not allow me to click the Tools Icon to change cookies to block cookies

    I allowed cookies setting in order to be able to go to my gmail...but since then the Privacy Alert remains on screen, not allowing me to click anything on IE's page. I need to get to Internet options to change cookies setting back to third party block.
    Will appreciate any help, have tried everything but message remains on screen
