Re: Deleting Internet Explorer

Hi Gene,

There is a way to do what is called a 'feature uninstall' in Windows ten using the apps folder utility.  You access this via a shell interface as follows.
1.  Press windows key + R for the run dialogue.
2.  type the following:
and press enter.
This interface gives the user access to what amounts to an old style Windows XP type interface for add/remove programs.  If you Highlight an item/program, and right click on it, you get a context menu that among other things gives you a 'create shortcut' (for the desktop and an uninstall item. If you highlight Internet Explorer in this interface, one of the choices for the context menu is 'feature uninstall.'

Still and all, I would not do it.  I don't know what the consequences of choosing this option might be.  Leave it alone unless you are an experimenter.
