  • I can not find my internet explorer. This morning I tried to open it and it disappeared from my home screen. I have checked my recycle bin and every place on my computer and I still can not find it. When I search my computer it does not even show that I have it on my computer. Can you help me

  • I also can't find my internet explorer.  I have windows 10 on my laptop...

    Edge is the default Browser in Windows 10. Internet Explorer's still available but first you'll need to enable access to it (i.e., turn it on) via Programs and Features | Turn Windows features on or off | Internet Explorer 11.

    That being said, in the future you will find appropriate, Consumer-specific support for Internet Explorer 11 by beginning your own, new thread in this forum => http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie11-iewindows_10
