A few months ago Microsoft released the Internet Explorer 10 Preview for Windows 7. But whenever you upgrade IE, especially in the workplace, oftentimes proprietary software programs stop working. Or maybe you simply aren’t a fan of it at home and want to go back to IE 9. Before installing the final version, here’s how to get back to IE 9.
The final release of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 was made available via Windows Update last week.
Get Back to Internet Explorer 9 in Windows 7
Click the Start button and type: appwiz.cpl in the Search box and hit Enter.
Next click the View Installed Updates link when Programs and Features opens.
Now scroll down to Windows Internet Explorer 10, right-click it, and click Uninstall
Click Yes to the dialog comes up asking if you’re sure. Then a restart is required to complete the uninstall process.
When you come back from the restart, launch Internet Explorer and you’ll see that it’s been set back to IE 9.
