ActiveX control for IE6
hello all,

I am looking for a script that will enable the 'Print Background colors and images' check box. Its found in:


Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab

then its under printing.

Can anyone help? Can it be done with an ActiveX control for IE6???

I have found such setting in the windows registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\PRINT\BACKGROUND

I have not played around with this myself but this would be good place to start looking into scripting this setting. Once you have figured out which keys to change you could use std windows objects to read/write to the registry. Hope this helps.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\PRINT\BACKGROUND

How do i get to this path? directory? file?

Is it in the system information?

i.e. start > programs > accessories > system tools > system information.

sorry, i'ma beginner.

This is located within the registry of windows.
