    Hit the Windows key + R to open a Run box. Type in regedit

    Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft

    Right-click on Microsoft, select New > Key

    Enter Internet Explorer

    Right-click on Internet Explorer, select New > Key

    Enter Control Panel

    Right-click on Control Panel, select New > DWORD Value

    In the right pane, enter History.

    Double-click on History to change the DWORD Value from 0 to 1 to enable the restriction.

    If you want the restrictions to apply to all users, navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    Right-click on Internet Explorer and select New > Key

    Enter Control Panel

    Right-click on Control Panel, select New > DWORD Value

    In the right pane, enter History.

    Double-click on History to change the DWORD Value from 0 to 1 to enable the restriction.

    Reboot.
