Internet Explorer is no longer the default web browser in Windows 10, which is different from Microsoft Edge. However, IE11 comes with Windows 10 and some people prefer its familiar interface. Like other modern web browsers, Internet Explorer 11 displays web pages in full screen mode, hiding all elements except the main browser window.
