IE8: How to Disable the WebSlices Notification Icon

Posted August 20, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Browsers

WebSlices allow users to subscribe to content directly from within a webpage. If WebSlices are available on the page, a notification icon will appear when you mouseover the content. If you don’t utilize WebSlices, this notification can be a distraction.


1. Open Internet Explorer 8.

2. Click Tools and select Internet Options.

3. Select the Content tab.

4. Go to the Feeds section and click the Settings button.

5. In the Advanced section, uncheck the Turn on in page WebSlice Discovery checkbox (Turn on WebSlice button in the page in Beta 1).

6. Click OK.
