    Unable to upgrade to IE 11


    On our desktop we are running Windows 8.1 and IE 11

    On our laptop we are running Windows 8 and IE 10

    When I visit the MS page to download IE 11 to install on the laptop I'm only being offered IE 10, also I do have 'install new versions automatically' ticked. Do I have some kind of setting on the laptop that is blocking this upgrade to IE 11?

    Hi Babs2,

    I don't think you can upgrade directly to IE11 via an offline installer (running Win 8.0). However, it is strange that you can get it for Windows 7. Maybe that's Microsoft's way of encouraging everyone to upgrade to Windows 8.1. I think you might be stuck with IE10 until you decide to upgrade to Win 8.1. Hopefully I'm wrong and somebody else will chime in with a positive solution. My response is based on some quick research here:
