I don't know what you mean by "turned off" but if you want to run IE, just type Internet Explorer in the caption box; ie, click the Start orb and type in Internet Explorer and select the top entry from the populated list.

Hi Lila,

You can turn IE back on in
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off

Here are your previous threads about this.

Click on Help / About in the browser you have in the screen print.

That looks like IE with a Google page in the address bar and Google as the search engine.

What version of IE are you using?

I have IE11 and this is what it looks like with a Bing page and Bing search provider.
(there is only 1 box for the address bar and search bar)

Bing is the Microsoft Search engine.
I don't know what "ie search" is.
