How to find classic Internet Explorer in Windows 10

Last updated on May 11th, 2017

With the release of Windows 10, Internet Explorer was replaced by Microsoft Edge (previously codenamed Spartan). Edge is the default browser in Windows 10 and is designed to be a lightweight web browser with new Microsoft features like Cortana and One Drive and without any support for old legacy features like ActiveX. For this reason I wrote this easy tutorial on how you can find and use Internet Explorer instead of MS Edge in Windows 10 OS.
