Re: how does one make edge look like internet explorer?

In case the information is useful, I haven't used JAWS to any extent for years and I haven't updated it. I still have 13.x and I tried it with Chrome. I'm using Windows 7. I'm not sure such an old version of JAWS will be at all useful in Windows 10. but since there are still people using Windows 7, you don't have to keep using Internet Explorer because you have a version of JAWS as old as 13.x. Chrome works very well with 13.x.

You can't use Firefox but you can use Chrome.
Also, I tried Brave but very little. the page I looked at might not have displayed quite correctly but it may not matter much. After I saw a little odd material at the top, I looked down the page a way and it seemed to display properly or just about properly.

What does the person want to do? In Firefox, Brave or Chrome, browsing is
almost exactly the same. If the person wants to learn how to work with
settings or the interface, they have to learn more. If not, it may be that
they may need to learn little or almost nothing.

I was searching for a friend who is reluctant to move on. It is like pulling
teeth so, I was trying to make the path to useing a different browser
easier. But, I think I will continue to insist that they use firefox or
brave. They already know how to use firefox but they are still using seven
woe! Thanks for the info I appreciate it! cheers Heather

When I saw your question, I looked up information.
https://www.onmsft.com/how-to/how-to-enable-and-use-internet-explorer-mode-in-the-new-microsoft-edge
If this is what you are discussing, it appears it won't make Edge look like Internet Explorer in terms of giving it an Internet Explorer interface. It will allow it to run in IE compatibility mode whenever you run it without you having to change it. that will allow some wehb sites to run that are compatible with Internet Explorer and not with Chrome, but my impression is that ehse are business sites and the general user will seldom run across such sites. I doubt most people that aren't working in business or institutions would benefit from making this change and I'm not sure if you can. This article says something like If you are in a business, you can do this, which implies that the general user can't.

I don't know how much you know about working with Chrome but for many people, there shouldn't be that much to learn. If you tell us what you are having problems with we can discuss it.

Hello, I saw off google that one can make edge look like IE however, i could not find the steps to do this without having to click the mouse and drag etc. So my questions are, does this work with the knew edge?The articles I came across did not say wich edge this works with. I am thinking about those who are trying to transition away from IE; just trying to make it easier. Thanks for any info, cheers Heather
