Re: Deleting Internet Explorer

I gather there is this or that site where IE works better than current browsers. They must be few and far between because I never updated my IE from the version that was in Windows 7 as of 2011, that is, 8.x., I just checked. I have been able to work well with sites in general and just never bothered. If I used Face Book, I would have upgraded because IE worked better. I don't know if it does any more. In short, if sites work well that you use, you may not want to bother.

Veronica,

Here's a Microsoft link where you can download IE11 64 bit:

Hi Mike,



I checked the version and found to have 8 point something. I followed your instructions and read Updates: 0. In the about section there was nothing that read install new versions automatically.

Hi Veronica,







The quick way to check your version is, with Internet Explorer open press, Insert, control + V, and Jaws will report...



The latest version of Internet Explorer is Version 11.00.9600.19597







To make sure your IE11 updates automatically, with IE11 open press, Alt + H, to open Help then press the letter, A, to open About.



Now you're probably at the bottom of the page, so up arrow to hear, Install new versions automatically checkbox, make sure this is checked and if it isn't check it with the spacebar.




Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Thanks to all of you for the advice. I don't want to do anything to disturb
my windows 7 computer, as this is my main computer for most things even
though I have a windows 10. So Internet Explorer is here to stay, even
though I am going to use MS Edge. However, I think I somehow deleted an
update to Internet Explorer, and I am wondering how would I go about finding
what version I have of Internet Explorer?

You shouldn't do it. the user isn't given the option to do so in
addd/Remove programs. It isn't just a browser, parts of it are used in
Windows itself. Programs usually don't take that mudch room and there is no
reason to worry about deleting programs unless you have a lot of them you
never use.

Hello there,



How would I go about totally deleting Internet Explorer from my Windows 7
computer? Your help would be immensely appreciated.
