Internet Explorer 10 comes default with Windows 8. In this tutorial, we are showing you how to remove Internet Explorer 10 from Windows 8.
Why We Suggest NOT To Remove It
We strongly suggest to not remove the Internet Explorer 10 – not only can it cause problems, at times you might also run into some situations when you will need it to configure internal Windows settings. Some things like VPN’s, Proxies, Feeds, etc. can be linked to internal processes and require you to have a copy of IE10. Also, there is really no disadvantage – IE10 is a good browser and we strongly recommend to install at least 3 browsers on your OS and use all three of them for different purposes to avoid possible hi-jacks that affect only one browser.
