I have a newer computer running 8.1 that has IE 11 on it.  I have a program I use daily that doesn't support that version, only 8- 10.  How can I downgrade? (FYI, It doesn't support Chrome or Firefox as well)

Thanks in advance

Hi geno368 :)

Unfortunately, it's not possible to downgrade from Internet Explorer 11 to Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8.1, since Internet Explorer 11 is the default web browser that comes with it. The only way to use Internet Explorer 10 would be to install Windows 8 as it's the default web browser. Did you try using the compatibility mode, and also add the web apps to your trusted sites list?

Try the following. Open IE 11. Press F12 to bring up Developer Mode. In the bottom pane select the icon next to Profiler ( down arrow below horizontal line). In the dropdown items select Emulation.  It should have a check mark next to emulation. Under User Agent select Internet Explorer 10. Under Document Mode select 10. Exit out of Developer Mode. Hopefully this will work.
