Internet Explorer help and info

  • Is Internet Explorer For Mac still supported for Mac?

    No it is not, which means that over time the software will become obsolete as web coding standards change and as the Internet changes in general. Nevertheless, there are still some websites that require Internet Explorer For Mac in order to work correctly.

  • How come some websites have broken page elements?

    The fact is that the Internet Explorer For Mac may simply be unable to host some websites. The most annoying element is when you enter all your details and your password, and you click the send/submit button to simply see the page refresh. On the other hand, there are some pages that will work on Internet Explorer For Mac and not on Chrome, Firefox or Edge, so it is still worth having this software on your Mac.

  • What do I do if it will not install with my version of iOS?

    Some people complain that they cannot install Internet Explorer For Mac on their version of iOS. If that is the case, then wait until your next iOS update and then try again. There are very few options for people who are unable to install Internet Explorer For Mac because there are very few backward-compatibility options for this web browser.

  • How do I stop pop-ups because I am still receiving them?

    You may have your pop-up blocker active, but its settings may not be high enough to stop the most annoying pop-ups from getting through. Click on the cog in the top right corner of the web browser window to see the IE menu, and choose the “Internet Options” selection. Click the “Privacy” tab and make sure the tick-box for your pop-up blocker is ticked. Click the button for the pop-up blocker settings, and it will direct you to your blocker options where you may pick a low, medium or high setting for your pop-up blocker.

  • How do I change or reset my version of Internet Explorer For Mac?

    Close all your windows and tabs so you only have one left and click on the cog in the top right corner of the web browser window to see the IE menu. Choose the “Internet Options” selection, click the “Advanced” tab, and select the “Reset” option. You will need to restart your device before the changes take place.

  • How do I change the security and privacy settings?

    Click on the cog in the top right corner of the web browser window to see the IE menu, choose the Internet options, and click on the “Security” tab to adjust your settings, and the “Privacy” tab to adjust your privacy settings.

  • How do I save files and images off the Internet?

    Simply right-click and use the options that appear, such as “Save As” or “Save Target As.” Some websites such as Instagram will not allow you to save images without the use of an extra tool.

  • Does Internet Explorer For Mac allow for add-ons and extensions?

    You may add extensions and add-ons to your Internet Explorer For Mac web browser, but remember that the extensions and add-ons are probably abandoned too as developers have little incentive to keep maintaining them when the web browser has been abandoned by the developers.

  • What should I do if a placeholder is there instead of a picture?

    In most cases, there is a placeholder there because your web browser was unable to load the image. Right click the image and choose the “Show Picture” option to see if the web browser is able to load the image. Otherwise, it is probably a problem with the website itself and not your web browser or Internet connection.

  • Is there a way of speeding up Internet Explorer For Mac?

    If your web browser is going a little slowly, your may disable a few add-ons or extensions, which may speed things up. Click on the cog in the top right corner of the web browser window to see the IE menu, and choose the “Manage Add-Ons” option. From there, you may enable and disable your web browser extensions.
