Like most organizations Sul Ross uses Active Directory Group Policy Objects to manage the Trusted Sites list in the Internet Explorer Internet Zone. If you are a part of Sul Ross and need to have a site added University wide or just to a single computer please reach out to help desk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling extension 8888. If you’d like to just check what sites are listed in the Trusted Sites section on your computer you can run the following command.
Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMapKey" | fl
The codes for sites in the information returned are:
- Intranet zone – sites on your local network.
- Trusted Sites zone – sites that have been added to your trusted sites.
- Internet zone – sites that are on the Internet.
- Restricted Sites zone – sites that have been specifically added to your restricted sites.
In the case of Sul Ross we are using HKey Local Machine (HKLM:) in the code above. You may need to change that to HKey Current User (HKCL:) if you are running this code outside of the University domain.
