Hello All,

I hope this doesn't come off as a silly question or one that I should ALREADY know the answer to (if I kept up on ALL the previous posts etc.) but I can't be sitting at my computer 24/7 searching to see if my question has already been answered. I don't mean to sound like a jerk about looking for the answer before posting my question but I just don't have the time OR the attention span required....and I am not trying to be funny as I DO have concentration and attention issues.

Well, HERE GOES.....

Is it possible to have BOTH Internet Explorer 6 AND Internet Explorer 7 installed as separate browsers and used individually?? If the answer is yes, how do I do it? If the answer is no please don't laugh at me!!

My question arises as the result of a notification by email of a post by "Yourhighness" regarding certain apps that work until you install IE 7. One of the apps mentioned was Thunderbird by Mozilla.

Here is the "link" to his topic that appeared in the email notification i received:


Okay, I have asked, and now I count on the expertise of my fellow "BleepinBuddys".

BTW, I consider it a PRIVELEGE to have access to SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE on SO MANY COMPUTER TOPICS!!!!

Thanks and PEACE TO ALL!!! :thumbsup:

It can be done, however the stability is not what I would call great, and there are numerous workarounds required. But if you have the time and attention span issues you mention in your post that you cannot do your own research. The work arounds and research required to make this happen is definitely not something I suggest you undertake. But if you insist on trying this, take a look here: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/1188/ie7_use_ie6_ie7_together. Also http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/11/3...le-machine.aspx
