    Internet Explorer 11


    Hi again,

    I managed to see my friends Windows 10, Home edition, manage to get another problem now.

    I did try to change the default browser i.e. change Windows Edge to Internet explorer.

    However when I clicked on change browser, internet explorer was chosen, nothing seem to have changed, all I seen was edge browser.

    There was no IE11 in the open All Apps.


    When I went to Microsoft webpage to download internet explorer 11 a message said I have the latest Internet explorer installed.... still cant get internet explorer to become default web browser.

    Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

    My friend has password protection when logging on, would that have a bearing on it?


    Cheers, Bondy

    Internet Explorer is hidden by Microsoft.
    Start button > All apps > scroll down to alphabet W > open Windows Accessories > Internet Explorer is on the list.

    adding ................
    Right click at Internet Explorer > click Pin to Start >
    or click More > click Pin to Taskbar >
    or click Open file location > right click Internet explorer > click send to > click Desktop (create shortcut)

    Make sure you set IE11 as default browser.

    A faster way will be simply type internet explorer in the search box > open file location, pin to start, or pin to taskbar. Take your pick.
