Internet Explorer 6 not Compatible with UCL Home Page

22 May 2014

To all Staff WTS 2000 and Cluster WTS users:  please be aware that Internet Explorer version 6 is not compatible with the UCL home page which uses HTML 5.  This may also affect other web sites running HTML 5. The application will freeze while trying to load HTML 5 coded pages.

Staff WTS 2000
Users of Staff WTS 2000 who have their home page set to are advised to change it to an alternative site, such as the ISD home page . Staff can change their default home page under Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options. This will open the internet properties window, within the general tab,  under home page, type the full web site address e.g. and click apply.

Cluster WTS
Users of Cluster WTS can not change their home page in IE6. They are therefore encouraged to use an alternative browser (firefox) or move to the  Desktop@ucl Anywhere service. ISD will investigate the possibility of setting everyone’s home page to the ISD page which is compatible with IE6.

If you require further assistance please contact the ISD Servicedesk.
