Dear Computer Lady,
I have an important note for the person who asked about uninstalling IE.
I would not do that – sometimes Microsoft programs don’t work well with other browsers.
For example, right now I am having trouble attaching files in Hotmail (now called Outlook) using Chrome. I had to use Internet Explorer.
There have been other occasions where third party programs were not compatible with other browsers. This problem seems to be getting rarer, but since I dislike IE, I notice instances when I am forced to use it because of compatibility issues (for example, a while back I had to use IE to spell check while creating an email using Constant Contact.)
Thanks for all your valuable information.
I agree with you. I have two websites that I use frequently that work with Internet Explorer but not Chrome (which is my favorite browser)
I also have some pattern drafting software that depends on Internet Explorer to work as well.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
