Microsoft is phasing out Internet Explorer and moves over to Edge. In order to facilitate that, some users experience that when they click on the Internet Explorer, it actually opens up Edge. In rare situations, the user might need Internet Explorer instead of Edge.
It is possible to override this.
- Start Microsoft Edge and open edge://settings/defaultBrowser
- Find the settings for “Let Internet Explorer open sites in Microsoft Edge” and set it to Never
- Click on the Internet Explorer icon. Now MSIE should open.
