How To Reset Internet Explorer 11 In Windows 10

A fan of the antique or whether you just prefer old school, Internet Explorer is back at your service. In this article we’ll tell you how to reset Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 10.

Windows 7 was probably the last time when the Internet Explorer was a little more common than it is nowadays. The reasons are obvious. The availability of newer more faster browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox etc. These browsers were much more user friendly, with better UI’s and new features which Internet Explorer simply did not provide.

Windows 8/8.1 may have been an ultra upgrade on Windows 7 but one thing that it did not provide despite the supreme upgrades in almost everything present in the previous build was a newer modern day web browser. Instead, it carried on with Internet Explorer and the Google Chrome and Firefox went on to dominate computers worldwide. Windows fanboys called for its head in Windows 10 so all eyes were on the latest build.

While Microsoft Developers did not completely grant them their wish, they did certainly bring them what they had been dying for, a brand new web browser in Microsoft Edge. This has led to many traces, that were previously left over of Internet Explorer, to be swept under the rug once and for all but this does not mean that Internet Explorer is gone. Windows 10 has also brought with it Internet Explorer 11.

While there isn’t a significant difference between its previous build and this one, we just couldn’t help but cover the steps to reset Internet Explorer 11 just for the sake of people who still use it because of being familiar with it.
