    I'm not following. Windows 10 has both browsers installed and they look very different.

    Edge you get with the large modern E on task bar and you can search for IE11. (unless you've already found it)


    That screen shot is edge. If you want IE11 search through cortana.

    Some may disagree on this, Edge is actually IE11.. Those accumulated updates, click the link on one, it takes you to Microsoft Support,, it list what they fix and anything on browser pertain to IE11 and not Edge. I have Edge set to have MSN my home page which looks like I have IE11 open.
    You're correct in one sense and wrong in another. Edge is the touch-centric immersive IE carried over from 8/8.1. At least the base code is. You know, the OS that no one liked and certainly the browser no one used, although I liked them. IE11 and Edge are two completely different animals written in different code language.

    Sorry, but a home page doesn't make it the same browser.

    Should also mention that Edge is a UWP Store app. An old article I dug up:

    With Windows 8, Microsoft introduced a touch-optimized browser in the new Modern/Metro/Windows Store App style – also known as the “Immersive Browser”.

    With Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11 a few nice tweaks were introduced to the Immersive Browser experience. Here are some highlights!

    This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:
    Updates Internet Explorer’s default visibility for the button that launches Microsoft Edge.
