    Do I Have to Stop Using Internet Explorer? How do I change it?


    I am running Windows 10 Home - Version 1803 and Internet Explorer 11 on my Dell XPS desktop computer. I am getting messages from websites that they do not want me to use IE.

    I have been using Internet Explorer since forever. Firefox seems to be the preferred browser. I have no idea how I would change to Firefox.

    For email, I use Outlook from Office 365 and also Yahoo email. I have 360 Favorites and many icon shortcuts to websites on my desktop and in folders.

    I am feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of changing and have no idea how to start.
    Thanks, cb

    :)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Do I Have to Stop Using Internet Explorer? How do I change it? wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).
