Hi,

I have purchased a pc that came preinstalled Windows 8 with Internet Explorer 10.  Due to my banking compatible software that I needed for my work, I have to used Internet Explorer 9.  How do I downgrade Internet Explorer 9?

I tried to turn the IE 10 feature off, but there is no IE 10 in the Windows Update to remove.  I downloaded 9.0 from Microsoft and it stated, "You already have Internet Explorer 9.0".

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Previous versions of Internet Explorer do not work with Windows 8, another browser is your only option, if that even works for you.

Have you tried using Compatibility Mode for the site(s) that require the earlier version?   That will usually do the trick.

Press F12 while you are on the site in IE  to bring up Developer Tools at the bottom. Go to Browser mode and play around with the IE versions to see if this alleviates any of your issues.

Thanks everyone for your feedback.  Is there a syntax/parameters that I can create a shortcut of IE 10 to run under IE 9 Browser Mode?

Adding the site to IE's Compatibility View should display that site in compatibility mode indefinitely ... click the broken-page icon in the address bar or go to Tools/Settings, Compatibility View Settings and add the domain to it.
