Greetings. Recently, I had to re-install my O/S, Windows 7.Pro. Along with that came Internet Explorer 8 and now I want to ujpgrade that to IE10. I do not want to go to IE11 because it messes my printer up. Now, if I go to the Microsoft downloads, there is no offer at all to download 10. Can anybody tell me why and what options do I have. Thanks

You can just use Windows Update to download it :)  .   Do a manual check for updates, just don't select Internet Explorer 11.

You could also visit http://support.microsoft.com/product/internet-explorer/internet-explorer-10/ .

Thank you both.  I did got to update and there was one to update to IE 11 and I unchecked the box but there was no option or box to check to update to IE10 as for the suggestion by Louis, there is nothing on that page that will allow me to download IE 10. Although I was able to pick the subject (Internet Explorer 10) there was no futher course to downloading it. Apparently Microsoft doesn't want people to go to IE 10 and are pushing IE11 which I do not want to do. Thanks

Sorry, but it appears that you are correct about Microsoft intent.  In prior years, they had an inventory of each version available for download...now, it seems that the only download possible is the most current version for an O/S.

 

I could guess at the reasoning behind this, but it really doesn't matter what the reasoning is.

 

In any case...never download a critical element of Windows from any site other than the MS site.

                        What is the consequence of not using it at all. I mean, as a computer novice, I am not aware that if I have to have it. I know therer are ujpdates which may be critical to the operation of the computer which I will allow, but do I really need Internet explorer?

That's odd, I just did the same thing less than a week ago (for a different reason) and IE10 was available for download as well as IE11.

IE is an integral part of Windows so you can't uninstall it. But many of us use alternative browsers like Chrome or Firefox.

I think it ok to use Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7, as I know, many people still use Windows 7, not Windows 8 or Windows 10.

Neither of those 2 links works for me.

 

But the ones here work for me in Firefox and IE8:  http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie8-windows_7/i-need-to-download-internet-explorer-10-for/9e9602f1-a9ef-40ce-b99a-357110773f9b .

I tried all of the sites suggested, same story. Right now, I'm glad I opted to read all updates before downloading since I probably would have been back with IE11 and printer problems. I'll just keep trying and maybe 10 will become available again. I'm stuck with IE 8, so I'll just use a differenct browser. The beat goes on.
