    When did IE change from IE12 back to IE11 ?


    Win 10 version 1703, Build 15063.540

    I am out dated.

    Only recently I found out that all my Windows 10 computers are showing IE11 instead of IE12 when I clicked the HELP > About.
    When did MS change that ?

    Hey David, :)

    There never was an IE12.

    Internet Explorer version history - Wikipedia

    This is what it shows for me in Windows 10 build 16273.

    Wasn't IE12 supposed to be linked to Windows 9, something that never happened as MS went straight to Ten to distance it from the unliked Eight. And with Ten came Edge.

    Thanks.
    I always thought Win 10 comes with IE12.

    I don't remember seeing an IE 12 in early development.
