If you know where to search, you can still use Internet Explorer on Windows 11.

  • Internet Explorer can still be used on Windows 11 despite the fact that it was retired in June.
  • Internet Explorer was removed by default in Windows 11.
  • On June 15, 2022, Microsoft will phase out Internet Explorer.
  • In spite of the browser’s end of support in June
  • A Twitter user has discovered a way to run Internet Explorer on Windows 11.

Internet Explorer was never supposed to function on Microsoft’s latest operating system. Windows 11 was pre-installed with the disabling of the dated browser. Microsoft officially ended its support for Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022. Old browsers, on the other hand, are like old habits in that they are hard to break. Internet Explorer can work on Windows 11 thanks to XenoPanther, a Twitter user.

There’s an antiquated Internet setting feature buried deep within Windows. In just a few easy steps, you can have Internet Explorer up and running:

  • Open the Start/Search option on your computer.
  • Type/search Internet options.
  • Get into the Control Panel.
  • Go to the Programs tab.
  • Select Manage add-ons.
  • Select Learn more about toolbars and extensions option.

A new window with Internet Explorer will be opened as a result of doing these procedures. It’s unclear why anyone would do this, especially when Microsoft Edge provides an Internet Explorer mode for people who still use older software.

To the best of our knowledge, this workaround should work with any version of Windows 11 that is currently available. Microsoft recommends acting immediately if you’re eager to use Internet Explorer on Windows 11. When Microsoft released its new operating system, it had no intention of making the old browser compatible with it. In the future, the corporation is likely to delete the freshly discovered workaround.

The market share of Microsoft Edge climbed with the demise of Internet Explorer. Edge’s share of the market climbed from 10.12 percent to 10.64 percent in June 2022, even if the growth may have been unrelated. Despite its current position as the runner-up, Microsoft’s browser is still well behind Google Chrome in terms of popularity. In June 2022, Chrome has a market share of 66.93 percent, which has remained stable for a long period.
