2. Will I lose any functionality by using it (like not having the Flash player in the older versions)?

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure that IE11 is just like IE10 in that (on a 64bit system) IE10 always starts in the 64bit mode.

See this long post for more info:

It is as I thought:
IE11 (on a 64bit OS) will create 64bit children if EPM is turned ON.
IE11 (on a 64bit OS) will create 32bit children if EPM is turned ON, but a 32bit plug-in is needed.
IE11 (on a 64bit OS) will always create 32bit children if EPM is turned OFF.
The "children" do the surfing.

Flash works fine too.

This does not work in IE 11 with zoom set to anything but 100%.
I agree with Night Hawk. Maybe you have a video driver issue:

Attachment 292986
This occurs on three systems all with different graphics hardware (AMD and NVIDIA).

I have found, however, that what happens when the zoom is anything but 100% , is the blue arrow box becomes separated from the input area of the screen. If I move the mouse around the highlighted text, I can find the input area and the context menu appears.

I did notice that the blue box was missing from my screenshot, but I figured that it was due to the video driver used in VirtualBox VMs. I'll install IE11 for the 6th time and play with it some more :-)

I included a screen shot of the phenomena at 100% and 125%

You are correct.It does seem to be a bug. Not that I ever use the blue square.

This is IE11 at 125%

I also tested IE10, IE9 and IE8 on that same page - with the same text selected. Those three versions worked as expected.

Corrupt Sidebar Gadgets (Win7 x64) right after installing IE10->IE11 (+ Italian language pack):



Rolling back to IE10 solves the issue with Gadgets. Whenever I reinstall IE11 they get corrupt again.
No Sfc /SCANNOW issues reported.

I also noticed in IE 11, that when I click on an attached thumbnail, like those above in this thread, I get the black screen with the rotating "spoke wheel" which then freezes. I must select the X to leave that screen and the next time I click on the attached thumbnail, the picture will appear.

You can no longer arrange the Favorites Bar, with a combination of internet shortcuts and local shortcuts, like you could in IE 9 and IE 10. It will put local shortcuts to the right of the internet shortcuts. They can not be intermixed.

I'm beginning to regret upgrading to IE 11.

You can uninstall it: Remove an update
The system will automatically roll back to previously installed version.

Thank you but it was just a comment on my part.

I was not able to reproduce that. All of the images on this page opened via IE11 using left click or right click > open in new tab.

I deleted the two items that MS puts on that bar - so maybe doing that messed up my testing. I was able to bookmark this thread and create a "local shortcut" to notepad. I could swap them around left to right. I'm not sure if that is what you had in mind for a local shortcut.

Is there anyway to sort files globally? It seems everytime I open or close a folder, it re-sorts it to another criteria from when I last set it. For instance, I'll pick "ascending" and close the folder. Then when I come back to it later, it automatically switches to "descending" on it's own. ...
