Listing of Trusted Root CA in IE

This section provides a tutorial example on how to see the list of trusted root CA (Certificate Authorities) pre-installed in IE.

As learned earlier, the trust of the entire HTTPS Website PKI is based on certificates of trusted root CA (Certificate Authorities) pre-installed in the browser.

Before using the Microsoft browser IE on my computer to visit any HTTPS Websites, I want to see who are those trusted root CAs pre-installed in IE.

1. Run IE and click the "Tools (or Alt-X)" > "Internet Options" menu. The Internet Options dialog box shows up.

2. Click the "Content" tab and the "Certificates" button. The Certificates dialog box shows up.

3. Click the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" tab. A list of about 65 pre-installed trusted root CA certificates shows up.

But in back in 2015, my IE 10 included about 400 pre-installed trusted root CA certificates. I don't know why IE removed so many of them.
