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.


Consider the following scenario:

  • You use Windows Internet Explorer 9 on a Windows 7-based computer.

  • You try to disable the Remember my credentials check box. To do this, you set the DWORD type of the DisablePasswordCaching registry key to 00000001 in the following path:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

  • You access a webpage that asks for your credentials.

In this scenario, the Remember my credentials check box is displayed unexpectedly in the Enter your credentials dialog box.


This issue occurs because an API that is related to the dialog box does not work correctly in Internet Explorer 9 in Windows 7.
