Default Internet Explorer. Gone But Not forgotten?

Any one else shut-off from IE? I have Windows 10.

I had trouble opening my web-shortcuts from my Desktop and when I searched I found an article from last March about it being no longer supported.

I shut off Edge and am using IE 11 with no problems. I've also added a start button so you can open programs like Windows XP.

Do a web search for loading IE on Windows 10. Procedure is simple. I use IE on both my WIN 10 machines for certain web pages that don't work nicely with Chrome.

Edge runs better on my Win10 box than the old IE

Killed Edge and IE. Chrome on all laptops, tablets, iPads and iPhones. It just seems to work better.

Look in the AllApps>WindowsAccessories part of the start menu on Windows 10. You'll find IE there. It's still around.

It's dead. And there are many better options to browse the web with.

I still have XP and years ago dumped IE and went to Chrome because it was much faster. But about 6 months ago Chrome started to cause problems so I switched to Firefox.

The biggest problem was having to into "Desktop" to delete my shortcuts because they locked my screen if I hit them. IE was getting nasty at the end so I have gotten over it and moved on.
