    No. Enabled means that you are ENcouraging something to happen.

    Disabled means that there is something that is not accessible for use – whether it is a software program, a part of your body, or your motor vehicle.

    Enabled means supporting behavior that is not beneficiary for being independent. Example, your eighteen-year-old son always gets a car ride home when he is well old enough to take the bus. Disabled means to take away an ability to function normally. They are two separate things. And when parents handicap or enable their children they’re not literally causing them to have a disability, but to become too reliant or dependent on them.

    Well, if you are talking about a computer program, then I suppose enabled means ON/yes & disabled means OFF/no.

    People are generally referred to as able-bodied/normal OR disabled/handicapped. I have never heard a person referred to as an “enabled” person, but now that you mention it, I like the way it sounds. It gives them a label too!

    We humans also have “enablers”, but that’s a whole different psychological set of issues.

    I’m giggling at the possibilities.

    Have a star for an interesting question!

    enabled is when someone has some mobility

    and ability to get around. They can get around and do things

    with no problem.

    If someone is disabled this says they have limited


    Also disability prevents a person from

    living anything close to normal life.

    but they try.

    When you put a disabled person in a good chair they can have improved mobility and they are enabled in the world.

    It’s only a negative if you make one out of it.

    If I disable private browser, does this mean I am allowing the sites to be tracked? If not how do I make it where I can turn off the private browser and have things tracked?
