Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1

  belayer 16:13 23 May 2014

I have bouight a new PC with Windows 8.1 installed. The Internet Explorer it runs is really horrible with the address bar at the bottom of the screen, I hate it. Is there any way of installing an older more familiar version?


Is there any way of listing favourites, home screen etc in Opera, because that looks like IE used to look.

"Is there any way of installing an older more familiar version?"

Windows 8 comes with two IE versions installed - the "app" one that you're not getting on with, and the one you're familiar with. This article, and this one too should help.

Thanks very much, that has got it sorted. Thank you.

One other thing, I have a CD of Windows 8 Pro that I bought for my last PC, is there any point in installing it? Does it add anything to 8.1?
