While we eagerly await the arrival of Windows 11, it is time to take care of our machine with Windows 10. Although the default browser of the Microsoft operating system has long been Edge, in some cases the ghost of Internet Explorer still lingers.
But how do we get rid of it once and for all? This is a sentiment shared by more than a few, especially since Microsoft itself has already announced the end of support for Internet Explorer 11.
Well, the procedure couldn’t be simpler so let’s roll up our sleeves and move on.
To begin with, we will need to access the Start Menu. We can do it with a left-click of the mouse on the Windows logo or by pressing the appropriate key on our keyboards.
Once the Start Menu is open, we will have to start typing the word functionality with the keyboard. After the first few letters, the global search result Activate or deactivate Windows features will appear. Let’s select it.
On the screen that will open immediately after, we will be able to choose from a long list of features integrated into the operating system, including Internet Explorer 11. Deselecting it and pressing OK, we will be asked for confirmation in a new dialog box. At this point, we just need to confirm our choice and that’s it. Internet Explorer will now no longer be installed on our operating system.
