IE11 Opens to Blank Page

    Question

  • Hi all,

    When I open IE 11 from my desktop, I get a blank page and have no internet options. However, the IE App in Metro opens. I prefer the Desktop version. This happened after installing updates. Firefox works as well.

    Thanks,

    Kelly

  • This is one that is leaving me stumped as i would tell you that you can default IE in your advanced tab if it was not properly working after a update.

    It could just be a random issue that happened in the update and i would recommend a system restore point. 

    Although i have never come across this issue before so i will tick a vote on this for further support so when you get a moment include what your default browser is set as, the updates you installed as well as the add-ons and extensions you have installed.

  • It just occurred to me that a possible fix would be to go to programs and features in the control panel then select turn windows features on or off. 

    From this point you would clear the check box for IE11 and hit ok. Most likely would want to restart the machine after uninstall is finished.

    After restart go back into turn windows features on or off from within programs and features and check the IE11 box that was previously cleared to be reinstalled and hit ok.

  • Hi,

    Please take a try to use Windows key + S, then on the search box, type Internet options.

    Choose Internet options, click on the programs tab, then choose the way how you open links:

  • I can't choose internet options, as the page is blank and my tool options are grayed out except for File, Safety, Compatibility View settings, and Report website problems.

  • This worked for me! I delete the registry key and re-opened IE.
