Make shortcut "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

or find it in folder

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

If C:\ isn't the installation directory, replace it with Your installation directory letter.

Or simply 

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

If you hit the Windows Key and type "Internet" (or, if you wish, "Internet Explorer") it will turn up as the first thing in the returned results.

 

IE11 is shipped with all versions of Windows 10, but MS is keeping this as quiet as possible because they want folks to convert to Edge.

 

If you want to have a desktop shortcut, see:

Internet Explorer .exe file iexplore.exe is always in folder Program Files/Internet Explorer.

No matter, if You have 32.bit (x86) Windows or 64-bit (x64) Windows.

Simply to say, You can run it always on the same way
Win Key + R => %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe => OK or Enter
 
Or make desktop shortcut link using link target %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
 
If there is no iexplore.exe in this folder, there is something wrong. You either deleted it in some way, or have disabled Internet Explorer for Windows 10 .

My way is easier.  If Internet Explorer does not come up in the search results after hitting WinKey and typing "Internet" then something is wrong with your system.

When you hit the WinKey and type "internet" it should not include the double quotes around it.  If you have been then try that again.  You should have a result that looks quite a bit like:

 

Attached File  IE_Search_Results.jpg   35.68KB   0 downloads

 

Then the first order of business in an attempt to fix it:

Still give DISM a try, then try the WinKey search again to see if Internet Explorer shows up.

 

Also, please hit the WinKey and type "winver" (sans quotes) and report back on what Version and Build numbers are running on your machine.

Have you simply looked in the start menu? IE ships with every copy of Windows 10.

What is not happening?

 

When support is being provided remotely, such as this, precision in reporting what you did, error messages, what actually occurs, and what doesn't occur that you think should be occurring, is essential to assisting you.  The what you actually did, e.g., "I tried to run the DISM command in an Command Prompt session with elevated Admin privileges," and what actually happened, e.g., "I immediately got an error message that stated, 'Insert actual message text here,'" is the bare minimum.

 

Otherwise assistants are left grasping at straws.

 

It is essential that I have the Version and Build numbers.  If the "winver" command is not showing up after you hit WinKey and type that word (sans quotes) then your system is seriously compromised.
