How to Upgrade My Internet Explorer for Free

By Greyson Ferguson

Internet Explorer is the default web browser for all Windows-based computers. The browser is being constantly upgraded, so if you have an older operating system you more than likely do not have the most up-to-date version of Internet Explorer. Thankfully the program can be upgraded for free, giving you the most recent version.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer with Internet connection

Step 1

Open your current web browser and navigate to the Internet Explorer download page (see link in Resources).

Step 2

Select the country you are living in, then choose your current operating system.

Step 3

Click "Download" and Internet Explorer downloads to your computer.

Step 4

Double-click the downloaded file to launch the installation wizard. Click "Next" on the welcome page, accept the license agreement, then click "Next" for both the installation name and location. This sets up the installation to replace your older version of Internet Explorer.

Step 5

Click "Install" and your Internet Explorer software installs onto the computer.
