Important: The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application is retired and out of support as of June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10.

You can still access older, legacy sites that require Internet Explorer with Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge. Learn how.

The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will progressively redirect to the faster, more secure Microsoft Edge browser, and will ultimately be disabled via Windows Update. Disable IE today.

Symptoms

You have an ActiveX control that uses the following code to hide or to reset the browser chrome:

pweb2->put_AddressBar(VARIANT_FALSE); 
pweb2->put_MenuBar(VARIANT_FALSE); 
pweb2->put_StatusBar(VARIANT_TRUE); 
pweb2->put_ToolBar(VARIANT_FALSE); 
pweb2->Release();

However, when you run the ActiveX control in Windows Internet Explorer 8, the ActiveX control does not work correctly. Additionally, the browser chrome is not hidden or reset as expected.

Note If you resize the browser, the browser chrome is hidden or reset as expected.
