    Internet Explorer not in my installations?


    Hello, fellow members. I apologize, I believe this may be in the wrong section.


    Well, I cannot see Internet explorer in my installations in the control panel, I want to uninstall it because I never use it, and it just opens up randomly sometimes which really annoys myself. I did some research on this, and other people suggested to look in the "View installed updates" to find it, although even then I did not.

    I do hope someone may help me with this situation. THANK YOU..!

    Hello Say What,

    If you like, you could turn off (uncheck) Internet Explorer in Windows Features to no longer have IE.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    No. From now on, you are Mr. Always Right Helper, to myself. Thank you, this did help.

    I am good with tech stuff, I may figure how things work, quite fast but sometimes it just doesn't hit me.
