The Microsoft Edge web browser is based on Chromium and was released on January 15, 2020. It is compatible with all supported versions of Windows, and macOS. With speed, performance, best in class compatibility for websites and extensions, and built-in privacy and security features, it's the only browser you'll ever need.

Some sites are built to work with Internet Explorer and have functionality that isn't supported by modern browsers such as Microsoft Edge. If you need to view one of these sites, you can use Internet Explorer Mode in Microsoft Edge.

Most sites work better on modern browsers. For better speed and security, it is recommended to only using Internet Explorer mode when necessary.

If the Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode option is set to Allow, you can add the Internet Explorer mode button to the toolbar in Microsoft Edge.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Reload tab in Internet Explorer mode button on the toolbar in Microsoft Edge.
