Customer Question
Hi, I have Windows...

Hi, I have Windows 10 and I want to make Internet Explorer my engine instead of Edge. How do I do this?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Internet Explorer?

I have no idea.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Internet Explorer?

I need to get into Taxact for my 2016 taxes and they do not accept Edge.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

Don't think so.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today!

If you just want to launch Internet Explorer one time to do you taxes, then simply follow these steps:

1. In the lower left corner, type "Explorer" (without the quotation marks) into the search bar.

2. You should then get a search results box that pops up and Internet Explorer should appear at the top. Just click on Internet Explorer to launch it.

If you want to make Internet Explorer your permanent default browser, then do this:

1. Click on the Start button in the lower-left corner, and in the lower-left of the Start Menu click the Settings/Gear icon.

2. Click the Apps icon.

3. On the next screen, click Default Apps on the left-hand side.

4. Scroll down to where it says Web Browser and click on Edge. It will then give you the option to change this to Internet Explorer.

That should do it for you! If you have any other questions, just let me know.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
