How To Uninstall (Turn Off) Internet Explorer 10 In Windows 8

To download Internet Explorer 10 on-line and install it like any other of its predecessor browsers is not possible in Windows 8. It is pre-installed along with the Operating System and it is not available for download .

If you have problem with  Internet Explorer 10 failing to open  it's required of you to forestall the problem before it can be able to be used. That sometimes requires you to uninstall (it is just turning it off in the real sense)  and to be re-installed  later. In this case it is clear it's not going to be present at the Add/Remove part of the Control Panel. 

If you are going to uninstall your Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 this instruction is meant for you.
