I assume that the windows updates installed IE 11 on my computer. I want to uninstall it and go back to 10. It is not in the list of installed updates, so how else do I uninstall it?

To uninstall IE 11:


IE 11 is not listed in the normal Programs and Features.

It's elsewhere within it and not difficult to find.

Open up Programs and Features.

After it loads look on the left side of the page and click View installed updates.

Let all the updates load, then scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section. Look through the list for Windows Internet Explorer 11. You can then uninstall.


If you have Windows Updates set to automatically install IE 11 will eventually reinstall. I suggest you change the update settings to Download updates but let me choose whether to install them.


You can then look at the list to see if IE 11 is listed when updates are available and choose NOT to install it.


You can also hide it so it will no longer be available as an update. To hide, you will have to watch for it to be available as an update. RIGHT click on the update, then choose Hide update. In order to do this you will have to disable automatic install of updates.
