I want to know which keys control the setting for the Privacy tab slider for cookies (in Internet Options).

I have the following official document, which outlines the following:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3

The the key "1A10" contains the value which control it. However I can only see a unique value for Block all Cookies, Medium and Accept all Cookies. When there is also High, Medium-High and Low. ANd strangley enough, the DWORD value for High, Medium-High, Medium and Low, are all the same, as specified in the article:

Privacy Settings (1A10) is used by the Privacy tab slider. The DWORD values are as follows:

  • Block All Cookies: 00000003
  • High: 00000001
  • Medium High: 00000001
  • Medium: 00000001
  • Low: 00000001
  • Accept all Cookies: 00000000

Can anyone explain where the setting/key is, which identifies the difference between the 4 settings which all have the same DWORD value?
