    No way to install/use Interenet Explorer 10 on Windows 8.1


    Unfortunately, Internet Explorer 11 does not display Citrix Access Gateway log in window. Ive tried to change some of the security in the settings but nothings working. Also tried to install IE 10 but it wont install, saying its already installed.

    Anyone know if you can actually use IE10 on Win 8? Not sure why it says its there when all I see is IE11.

    Try this: Go to Control Panel> Uninstall> Turn Windows features on or off> Untick IE11. This should either revert you to IE10 or at least allow you to do a clean install of IE10.

    Thanks. Ill try it. But thankfully, I just figured out Firefox is compatible with Citrix Access Gateway so IE is out of the picture anyways.

    Just a thought - would using Compatibility View for all websites in IE11 help? (I don't have it so am guessing).

    Hi there
    Some sites - for example some Internet Banks don't yet recognize IE11 as a supported browser -- some of these sites only allow specific browsers through.

    FF usually works as it's still a common browser -- although much too much bloat in it for my taste. IE11 will become mainstream in the not too distant future - especially with the impending port back to W7 as well.

    I've had (much against my will) to use FF to access some online banking as IE11 gives message from the site "Unsupported Browser" -- or even funnier "You are using an out of date Browser Please Update your Browser to the latest version". !!!!

    Cheers
