    Install or Uninstall Internet Explorer in Windows 10


    Yep, you'll need to make Internet Explorer the default browser if you want website shortcuts to open in IE11.

    In addition, double check to make sure that you pinned "Internet Explorer" like step 4 below.

    THANK YOU Brink for ALL your great help, especially for making sure I do what's necessary to get the right result. I was able to make it the default and also to pin it in the taskbar the right way!

    Of course, when I want to use Firefox (which will be the majority of the times....) will I have to make a default of this one too? So then will I have 2 defaults? Or will I have to de-default the IE?

    Thanks again!!! *Smile

    P.S. I forgot to ask you if you happen to know the meaning of this window I get from time to time entitled: "Use recommended security and compatibility settings" referring to the IE 11. And it has a greyed out "OK" and "Ask me Later"...... Thanks.

    Adela,

    You will only be able to have one the web browses as the default to open websites with.

    However, you can use "Open with" and just click on a listed web browser to temporarily open sites you want with the non default web browser at anytime. Just be sure to leave Always use this app to open unchecked to prevent making it the default app.

    Edit: That box is to adjust your settings for IE11 if wanted. It's best to leave it set to recommended.

    I'm very grateful for your help. Now with the IE I was able to transfer the photos. I'll also keep in mind how to handle both browsers. I'm going to keep the URL of this thread so if happens again I'll have the info handy. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!! *Wink

    Good afternoon
    OS and software: Windows 10, MS Office 2013.
    After uninstalling Internet Explorer 11: Tracking of hyperlinks in the body of emails leads to message box with error error message. Setting Firefox or Edge as the default browser does not help.

    Good afternoon Brink,

    thank you very much for the answer.
    The default for the .URL file type is set to "Internet Browser".
    But, I have set Edge as default.

    Now, I want to remove the Internet Browser from the System.

    Best regards

    Does it work properly again if you add IE back?

    This was not my question. But, yes.

  12. I think clicking on "uninstall" in Optional features turns off IE11 if it hasn't been turned off already in Windows Features and removes the option to turn if back on in Windows Features. It don't think it actually uninstalls IE11 from your computer.

  13. Install or Uninstall Internet Explorer in Windows 10

    If you go to Apps & features (in Settings) and click on Manage optional features, you are given the option to "Uninstall" Internet Explorer 11 (even if you've already turned it off in the Control Panel).

    If you click "Uninstall", the option to turn it back on in the Control Panel disappears.

    Thank you @Ground Sloth.

    When I click on Uninstall for Internet Explorer 11 in Optional features, it doesn't do anything for me though. *Confused

    This is with IE11 turn on and off in Windows Features.

  15. I unchecked it in the "Turn Windows Features on or off" (made me reboot), then went to Manage Optional Features and clicked uininstall and it is gone.

    It is no longer in the "Turn windows features on or off" nor the Manage optional features list.
