There are many ways to open Internet Explorer on Windows 10, which are very simple and straightforward methods. But the question is why you still need it?

Well, most of you, Internet Explorer might be dead but there many old business and government agencies still have old websites that don’t function properly on modern web browsers.

So they have to depend on Internet Explorer and luckily Microsoft has included Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10.

But I would not recommend you use IE, as it is old, outdated and doesn’t have modern web features of today’s browser. Furthermore, it will be easier to attack than the modern web browser.

Only use when you want to open old web pages in Internet Explorer that don’t support modern web browsers.
