Internet Explorer on Windows 10

I am trying to reset the internet explorer browser on windows 10. I can't find how ? can someone please explain me how to do it step by step. Also, It seems to me that its internet explorer on Windows 10 in more an app than a browser and it is called Microsoft Edge ?

Am I correct ?

Internet Explorer 11 is included with Windows 10.

It is not, the default browser.

Edge is the default.

To run Internet Explorer 11,  you need to search for Internet Explorer:
Click the Start Button, then start typing "Internet". It should show up as a search result.

Once you have found it, Pin it to the Taskbar, or the Start Menu, so you can find it again.

Microsoft Edge is the new version of Internet Explorer.  If you want to use IE then click the start button and type Internet Explorer in order to open it.  

If you want to set IE as your web browsing default follow these steps.
Click Start
Click Settings
Click System
Click Default apps
(Scroll to the bottom)
Click Set defaults by app
Select Internet Explorer (Left menu)
Click Set this program as default

I hope this is what you are trying to accomplish.

Guys those are all incredible info. I was quickly able to reset the browser following the very easy information from CWstad2.  I also learned quickly about Edge thanks to all of you.

Is there any difference between Edge and Explorer 11 ? what is a reason why I want to have Edge and Explorer ? wouldn't be better to give to the client a second choice like Chrome or Mozilla ?

Thank you

Chrome or Mozilla are excellent alternatives to IE 11 & Edge ...
Suggest you supply all and let the user choose the more fitting browser.

Edge is new technology, no simple new IE version. If you'd like to provide clients with two browsers in order to have a second one in case certain pages don't work with IE11, edge will probably work. There might be some pages that don't work in both, working only in chrome / only on Firefox.
