IE & Media Player in Windows 10

Dear Computer Lady,

I have been putting off getting a new computer with Windows 10, but I will need to do it soon.

I have heard that Windows 10 no longer has Internet Explorer or Windows Media Player. I would like to know what I can use to replace them.

Thank you, Fran

Dear Fran,

Microsoft would like you to use their new browser, Microsoft Edge, and their new media player, but the old browser and media player are both still available in Windows 10.

They are easy to find, just click on the start button and type the name of the program you are looking for.

Once you have opened Internet Explorer, you can pin it to the taskbar for future use. Right-click on the icon on the taskbar, and click “Pin To Taskbar” to keep the icon there.
