    Windows 10

    Presence of Internet Explorer


    1. I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 from 8.1 three days ago. I run CCLeaner daily. I see 'Internet Explorer - Temporary Internet Files' in its analysis, still. I thought IE would have been removed and replaced completely by Microsoft Edge in the upgrade process.
    2. A window appears each time I click CCleaner's 'Run Cleaner' button stating, "Microsoft Edge Cache Database and Internet Explorer needs to be closed to clean the internet cache. Do you want CCleaner to close Microsoft Edge Cache Database and Internet Explorer?" Neither has ever been open at the time to my knowledge.

    Internet Explorer 11 is still there but hidden in Start, All APPS, Windows accessories. You can pin it as a tile or in Taskbar.
    Could be uninstalled usual way but is still part of the system and you can't get rid of it completely.

    I do not require IE but you have answered my first question. It seems strange, though, that there is no real option but to have it remain alongside its replacement for those of us who use neither.
    I thank you for your immediate and informative reply.

    It still shares some parts with File Explorer so it's deeply immersed in system.
