Whenever we Install Windows or Buy a PC/Desktop, First thing we all do is Install New Software that we use Mostly & Uninstall that Software that we use Rarely. Today am Talking About “Uninstall Internet Explorer”. If you know when Internet Explorer 9 was launched then it came in form of Update & By using Installed Updates Section we can Easily Uninstall Internet Explorer. But Now we can’t do the same thing to Uninstall Newer Version of Internet Explorer 11.
As you Know Internet Explorer cannot be found in Uninstall or change a Program Section in Control Panel.
That’s why it’s not that simple like Uninstalling Third Party Software. Removing or Uninstalling Process of Internet Explorer 11 is Completly Different.
Note – Before Start Following All Steps make sure you have New Browser setup (Chrome, Mozilla, firefox, opera) is available on your computer. But If you are using Windows 10 then Edge Browser is enough for Basic Search & it will help you in Downloading things.
