Can someone give me the detailed description about Internet Explorer- 10 and 11 Editions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is there any editions like Hybrid ?

    I wanted to know what are the different unique official IE editions are there.

    As far as I'm concerned there are 32-bit & 64-bit.

    Because when we run IE at a time 2 different processes displaying under Task Manager.

     On some Windows-10/7 machines it's showing: iexplore.exe

     On some other machines it's showing both: iexplore.exe and iexplore.exe *32


    I do Compatibility Testing of Windows-10/Office Professional Plus 2016/Office Professional Plus 2013/ IE-10/11 with my Company Software. Where we have to validate the basically the Excel Add-ins related pages and data across these Add-in pages. These Excel files has to support both Web application as well as Desktop application.

    For Office 2013 everything looks fine. But for Office 2016 there are several UI controls/Text rendering issues.

    So I have a big question here.

    Does IE-10/11 (32/64) fully supported to Windows-10/Office Professional Plus 2016/Office Professional Plus 2013 ?

    If yes, Which IE edition would be best one for above combinations ?

    I would request to provide a set of Combination Matrix to get more information on Compatibility checklist.

    Thank you,

    Have a great day !

  • Hi ,

    Based on your description, you are testing on Windows 10 machine, right?
    Please notice that IE 11 is built-in with Windows 10, it cannot be downgraded to IE 10. Usually, we recommend that you upgrade to IE11 if you're running any earlier versions of Internet Explorer.

    Best regards

  • Hi Rita,

    Please see Compatibility Changes in IE by Version

    If you are trying to use legacy Intranet websites in IE11 please also see

    Stay up-to-date with Enterprise Mode for IE11 - EMSL's enable legacy Intranet sites to be used with IE11 without any coding changes by using legacy emulation modes. Ideal if you have legacy Intranet sites that were developed for XP/IE5-8, but don't have the resources or access to change the source code.

    see also Understanding and Working in Protected Mode Internet Explorer to understand tab bit-ness. By default 32 bit extensions and ActiveX are allowed to run in the Intranet zone.
