Find Internet Explorer in Windows 10

You might not have been aware that Internet Explorer can still be used in Windows 10. In this beginners guide we'll show you how to find it and how you can easily get to it any time you want.

It doesn't show up under "All Apps," but that's OK, you can just use the Cortana/Search box.

Activate Cortana either by saying "Hey Cortana, open Internet Explorer," or by typing in the box if you're not using voice or have Cortana disabled. Internet Explorer will show up immediately to be opened for use. To avoid doing this every time you want to use Internet Explorer, follow these simple steps.

  1. Type "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana/Search box. Saying "Hey Cortana, open Internet Explorer" isn't useful here.
  2. Right click on "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana/Search window.
  3. To add as a tile on your Start Menu click "Pin to Start."
  4. To keep it on your taskbar simply click "Pin to taskbar."

Now, every time you need to use Internet Explorer it's just a click or two away.
