Correcting Your User Authentication Settings in Microsoft Internet Explorer on the Windows Platform

If you are using the Internet Explorer browser on the Windows platform and are not prompted to enter a Username and Password when accessing the PictureView service, your User Authentication settings may need to be adjusted. To determine and change your settings, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Launch Internet Explorer.
  2. Click on the Tools menu (or the gear icon near the upper right corner) and select Internet Options. The Internet Options dialog window will appear. (If you are using Windows 8, you might need to launch Internet Explorer from the Desktop rather than the Start screen in order for the gear icon to be displayed.)NOTE: Using America Online (AOL), you will need to access the AOL Internet Properties dialog window. How you access the dialog will depend on the version you are using. For example, using AOL version 5.0, click on My AOL, select the Preferences option, and then click on the WWW option; using AOL version 7.0, click on Settings, select the Preferences option, and then click on Internet Properties (WWW).
