    Install or Uninstall Internet Explorer in Windows 10

    Sorry folks, but this is a crock. I hate to see deliberate misinformation from Microsoft disseminated.

    Before even reading this post I uninstalled Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 10, restarted, checked to make sure that the Internet Explorer 11 box was unchecked, and then hit the Internet Explorer 11 shortcut on the task bar. Voila! Internet Explorer 11 launched.

    I then went back to see if the status status of the check box had changed and it was still unchecked.

    This was done on a clean, good install of Windows 10. Try it for yourself.

    Before you go accusing people of misinformation, please read the Info box which clearly says you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer. However, you can turn it on or off. There is a big difference in the two.

    Pardon me, sir, but I was not accusing anyone here of disinformation, I was accusing Microsoft of disseminating misinformation which unfortunately happened to be repeated here.

    You are quibbling. OK fine not "uninstall", "turn off", but it does not turn off. I encourage you to try it for yourself. Internet Explorer 11 will still launch and operate as always regardless of whether the box is checked or not.

    I did. That's why I am typing this from Edge. It works just like the tutorial says it does. I can't even find Internet Explorer with a search for it.

    Internet Explorer 11 is Edge.

    My bad, I was misinformed. I was led to believe that Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 was called Edge.

    They are completely different in quite a few ways. But, no problem.

    Please forgive my intrusion, essenbe, but where can I go to find the IE I had many years ago? It doesn't show in my Programs & Features. I have Firefox with which I'm ok, but because I'm having problems with transferring photos, I was suggested to install IE, but if it's somewhere in my computer maybe I can find it instead of struggling to try to install it?
    Again I'm sorry to intrude in this thread and thanks so much for your help. *Smile

    Install or Uninstall Internet Explorer in Windows 10

    Thank you so much Brink!!! I found it and pinned it in my taskbar, so I'll have both browsers. What I didn't find was the column at the left in the Start page. When I got Win10 I started moving/deleting around the content and I lost most of it. Have been searching very frantically to find out if there was a way to restitute that Start page as when it came with, but never got any answer. If by chance you know how, ill appreciate it a lot to let me know? No rush, I lived with this since I got Win10 so I can wait more..... lol! Again thanks so much!

    Oh thanks so much for the Edge Startup page for W10! I’ll go and try to see if I can reinstate that page on my computer, after I fix the IE matter.

    Yes, the IE I pinned in my taskbar won't open when I click on it. It works when I go to your site, but when I close your site and I want to open the IE to do other things, it won’t open. When I right-click it says: "IE add-on installer" and "Unpin from taskbar". Any ideas?

    Is it because I didn't make it the default browser? I wasn’t sure if I should since I intend to use both browsers, but just the same I wanted to do it but didn't find the place for it. Any other ideas why this IE won’t open now? Thank you again.
