Internet Explorer - the latest version for windows 10 pro 64 bit

Last Modified: 2017-07-10
I have the Microsoft Essentials account and have Office 2016 with Microsoft Edge.  But Edge is having issues, thus I am trying to switch to IE, and woudl like to inquire if I can install whatever version is compatib le with my OS of Win 10 Prof 64 bit.  If IE can be installed with the 32 bit, it will be ideal because the 64 bit has problems from time to time.  Thank u.

4.In the left sidebar, select Turn Windows features on or off.
5.check the box next to Internet Explorer 11.
6.Select Yes from the pop-up dialogue.

if the suggestion above didn't help you to install IE then the only way to back it to Windows 10 is a Windows 10  Repair Install with an In-place Upgrade to fix that problem.
  You will not lose any data files or Apps if you follow the Instructions.
   Go to the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from this link:
