Open a browser and go to the Microsoft Internet Explorer website (see Resources).

Click the "Download" link to the far right of the page.

Step 4

Choose your country/region from the drop-down menu in the left column on the page that appears. Click on your operating system in the right column.

Step 5

Hit the "Download" button. Click "Open" or "Run this program from its current location" in the dialog box that appears.

Follow the prompts as the download and installation process continues. They will include a series of questions about where you want the application to reside on your machine, as well as your preferences.
