Secrets of the Office Masters: Understanding Cookies

A useful but little understood feature of contemporary Web browsers is the capability to store cookies—bits of information stored at the user's system rather than in a file or database on the Web server. Cookies enable you to know when a user returns to your Web site, as well as any information captured when he or she last visited. When a user returns to your Web site, the browser automatically passes the last stored cookie information—enabling you to adjust the information accordingly.

To see the cookies that Internet Explorer has stored on your behalf, look in the Temporary Internet Files folder for files that begin with Cookie:. You can open a file in Notepad to view the cookie's settings.
