Answers

  • No, there is not.  The default is IE8.  Win 7 ships with IE8 and there is no Win 7 IE8 download.  There is an IE9 download for Windows 7.

    Sir, You can't install Internet Explorer 7 but you can run it inside Internet Explorer 8 & 9 (as the rendering engine is bundled) by doing the following:

     

    1. Open IE8 or IE9
    2. Open >Tools >Developer Tools
    3. Switch Browser Mode to IE7 and Document Mode to IE7

    Regards,

  • If you are having issues viewing certain web sites, you can try viewing them in compatibility mode.
