I notice that you have an option in edge to use IE but it seems to be only to view the page your looking at.

While I am not fully disatisfied with edge sometimes I would be more comfortable with IE.

 

Some of the forums I go to are so full of ads it takes several minutes to load at times.

I miss my adblock+ and no script.

 

Altho I have seen a number of posts that people using IE 11 while running 10 have some problems.

If you search for Internet Explorer in the search bar, you can launch IE, on its own. But, until Edge gets extensions, you're better off with Firefox or Chrome, IMO.

Had a bad experience with Firefox on my vista box, not shure I will ever trust them again or Google for that matter.

 

Most open source browsers unfortunatly Google has their hands into. Not many alternatives left actually.

 

Setting IE as default browser in Internet options did not do the trick. So that is out the window.

First thing I did with edge was remove google as the search engine.

You may have noticed I do not like or trust Google any farther than I could throw their corporate offices.

You can make a shortcut for Internet Explorer on your desktop, your task bar and your start menu so that it is always handy.

Actually Edge comes pre-installed with Bing as the search engine, not Google. Set Internet Explorer as your default web browser should be easy and then you can always use Internet Explorer from all of your links.

I have found many times when people try to help they are often useing a different version of 10 than I am. A clean install or a earlier Pro version something like that. Not the free version that self installed itself.

 

On here the first time I opened edge Google was the default search engine.

Changing IE to be the default browser in settings ;internet: options made no change Edge seems to be here to stay for now.

 

I do thank those trying to help. Sometimes us less knowledgeable users have a hard time getting or seeing the same things that those helping are seeing.

How do you do that exactly.  So far I haven't found IE 11 on here.

Internet Ex-PLODE-r is buried under "Windows Accessories" in Win 10.

Spoiler

 

You can easily access IE11 in Win 10 by

  1. Typing "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana/Search box.
  2. Right click on "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana/Search result window...
  3. To add as a tile on your Start Menu click "Pin to Start."
  4. To keep it on your taskbar simply click "Pin to taskbar."

Now, every time you need to use Internet Ex-PLODE-r it's just a click or two away.

 

Another way to launch IE is to Open the Run command and type iexplore.exe > Enter to launch it.

 

You could also Create a desktop shortcut: by navigating to ‘C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer’, and create a desktop shortcut for IE by right clicking on iexplore. > send to > select Desktop (create shortcut)

 

There you have 4 ways to have IE a mouse click or two away in Win 10.

 

I can't speak to the "issues" some are having with IE11/Win 10 cuz I don't use Ex-PLODE-r... ever.

 

To set IE as default browser in Windows 10 go to Settings > System > Default Apps > Scroll down to Web Browser, and make your choice

HTH :)

Go to start, type in "default programs" and choose Internet Explorer. Be sure to hit OK when your done. It's that easy.

Another option.

I tried it up to the point of actually setting the default, and it seems to work on my Home version (upgraded, not clean installed).

Do you have a search bar in the left corner of the task bar, next to the Start button?

Yes I do but the blue E only opens edge.

I will once again try to attach a snip of the start where I have chosen IE to be the default browser many times
