Microsoft has launched Edge 85 and added a new mode, too, that emulates the well-known Internet Explorer. We can now browse old legacy sites that are not available in modern browsers.
The issue with modern browsers not displaying correctly old websites is annoying. And such a thing is not happening only in Edge, Firefox and Chrome have it, too.
Also, even if it doesn’t occur often, your browsing experience is still ruined. But, things are about to change.
Now, when you open such a page, you can choose to just reload it in Internet Explorer, without even closing Edge. Here is what you need to know.
Hello, Old Friend: Internet Explorer is Revived
As Techdown details, the Internet Explorer mode has been available to business users for quite a while. Now, we can also benefit from it. If you miss some websites for the good old time’s sake, but Edge can’t keep with you, there is a solution.
Microsoft thought is better to revive an old flame, than update regularly new stuff that apparently gives us a hard time. Older websites are not, unfortunately, shown correctly in Edge. The menus are missing or the images are in disarray. And even if we’re not going to get this too often, it can be very frustrating when it happens.
So, now when you experience such things, you can simply choose to reload your pages in Internet Explorer without closing Edge. Here’s what you have to do:
- Verify if you have the latest variant of Edge;
- Click on the menu icon and go to Settings;
- Choose Default browser from the list on the left;
- Toggle the switch Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode;
- Restart Edge.
When you encounter an incompatible website, hit the menu button again and choose More tools and click on the Reload page in Internet Explorer.
