I'm using Windows 7 & I was using IE 10.

I followed the directions on a YouTube video on the web & I got IE 9.

I need to get IE 8 to do some testing of a web app that some customers claim does not work in IE 8.

Is there a way to get IE 8?

Thanks

you need to uninstall higher versions of IE8 and install from below location

You can "downgrade" from IE 9 to IE8

But rather than do that, and miss out on the advantages of IE 9 for other uses, run IE9 in IE8  mode when you need IE 8.  Click F12 .  From the Developer Tools window click Browser Mode in the MenuBar and click IE 8.

I would run ie in xp mode, then run an earlier version of IE such as 8.

To all,

I tried to do what ram_kerala suggested. When I removed IE 9 & rebooted, it automatically went to IE 8.

Now I have to figure out how to get BACK to IE 10 or 11.

Thanks

You can download and install IE 10.  Details here

Or you may be offered IE10 from Windows Update.

Then as I already suggested in http:#a39609162 you can run IE10 in IE8 Browser Mode when you want.  
"Click F12 .  From the Developer Tools window click Browser Mode in the MenuBar and click IE 8."
