  3. IE11 in Windows 10- How do I put an IE icon on the Desktop

    I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I want to put a icon on my desktop for Internet Explorer, so the web pages will open automatically in Internet Explorer, but haven't had any success so far. I re-installed Internet Explorer, but it does not
    appear when I open ALL APPS.

    Hey Sanda,
    Give this a try ...

    Open Regedit (winkey+r > type in regedit > click OK)
    Navigate to the following key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NlaSvc\Parameters\Internet
    In the right panel double click on EnableActiveProbing and set it to 0 then click OK
    Close Regedit
    Reboot PC

    thank you, I just tried that but unfortunately it didn't work. Should I have restarted the computer to make it work?

    Yes, registry changes require restart to take effect.

    As IE is classified as a feature.
    Just turn it OFF, as you dont use it.

    Malwarebytes | AdwCleaner

    Free Cyber Security & Anti-Malware Software

    System Restore Windows 10

    Reset Windows 10


    Have you reset IE ? (Settings(gear icon, upper right)Internet Options/Advanced/Reset) Is IE mistakently set to be your default browser ? (Settings (lower left corner, gear icon) Apps/Default Apps)



    Did you run a scan with your AV ? Also, run Malwarebytes which is good for identifying pups (unwanted programs) which could effect the browser. And adwcleaner which also identifies browser issues.


    Also, you may consider a System Restore to a point before the issue. And at last resort, reset Win10.


    Lot of homework for you ! *Smile Let us know the result.
