Internet Explorer - Open in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Here I never even had to go into the Control Panel at all when finding the IE folders were intact in both Program Files and PF(x86) folders and simply pinned the 64bit flavor of IE. As for simply seeing IE gone entirely just remember any number of older apps will open IE windows automatically when first installed, when going to select the purchase option, to get to the help, and when uninstalling some will still see their web page opened up. IE has been the standard for so long you may run into a situation where IE will need to be put back on.
haven't used it yet. july 29 vanguard of windows 10 users.
You won't be missing much at this time except a quick peek at what could prove to be something sometime to come later once it is finished! This is the updated layout that see a change in appearance as far as the layout being more touch screen friendly compared to the dropdown menus presently seen with most browsers especially IE. Point and Click and Point and Click is what MS is veering away from to a certain extent in order to come up with a working browser good for multiple platforms.
Reading some of the posts I see several members now trying it instead of IE 11 or FF or CHROME.
The one thing I have noticed with IE as well as with Waterfox when in 10 not seen in 7 is when going to click on the link for any forum reply 10 requires you to right click on the link itself to a thread like this and select the open in new window or tab option while in 7 I would simply click the link and automatically see a new window open on it's own!
In IE you saw the option for opening any new link in a window instead of tab there you won't find in Waterfox, FF, Opera, Chrome, etc. you still end up needing a right click if you want to keep the first window open to where it is. Yet if I click on any link someone posts that will see a new window open up rather then being moved off of the thread itself.
I still have a folder full of browsers for Windows to try out on 10. Palemoon, Seamonkey, Iceweasel, Opera(older flavors not the latest), Netscape Navigator 9.0, Flock, and a few other things to try out. I doubt those will be seeing any long term use at this time however.
Well, I am still missing the extensions, but as I have left LastPass (because of LogMeIn) and switched to KeePass, I have found a way to use my password database even with Edge - so now I am on the Edge...ehm. And it just works for me. (my favorities/bookmarks are on Pinboard.in)
I love Chrome, it has it's flaws but nothing close to the flaws of Edge. LOL they have to convince me to use Windows 10 first, then Edge. I consider both of them to be dogs. They offer nothing and take away to much of what i use. They are both a waste of my time and effort, why would I want to switch from windows 7 or 8, doesn't make sense.
Here I solved that by deciding to dual boot rather then opt to simply replace one for the other. I also set 10 up on a second desktop made portable but no WiFi driver even for 8.1 available leaves that stuck with 7 there! But when the 64bit 7 first came along in beta I couldn't even get online since the ISP modem was 32bit Vista only! Been through all that before!
