Dear all Masters please help me.

How do I install IE8 in Windows 7? I have been looking on Google, but have not found a solution. I downloaded IE 8 from Microsoft, when the installation error , "not supported with your OS "came up. Then I want to run programs that only support IE ​​8. How do I downgrade from IE 9? Do I have to downgrade to XP?

Olinger,

Internet Explorer 9 is compatible with Windows 7 and works fine with it. However, you may have issues with certain websites as they are designed for the older version of the web browser. In such cases, you can turn on the Compatibility mode which helps to display the website as in older version. Follow the steps provided below to turn the compatibility mode on:

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Click the Compatibility View button on the Address bar.

If you would like to uninstall the Internet Explorer 9 and roll-back to the older version of Internet Explorer, follow the below steps:

  1. Click the Start button, and open Control Panel.
  2. Click “Uninstall a program”, under Programs.
  3. Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.
  4. Then choose from the following to Restart the computer:

    • Restart now
    • Restart later

Uninstalling Internet Explorer 9 will automatically revert your browser to Internet Explorer 8 which is the default version in Windows 7.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Orabel
