Likewise Lady Fitzgerald. I have learnt over the years to wait a while or risk a full reinstall as some update like this hoses the system. I am a Firefox guy in any case.
I always make a full backup first. If it hoses my system, then I can restore it in about 15 minutes. And previous installs of IE have, after uninstalling the new version, left the system with sfc integrity issues.

I don't see any difference in the layout from IE10 though.
Same here. I haven't had any issues with it yet, knock on wood. I am actually starting to use it more than firefox on my windows desktop.

The first thing most noticed at the top of this thread was not seeing a 32bit when installing the 64bit for the 64bit Windows. In all past versions after IE 6 that is the 64bit would still see the 32bit tag along install at the same time. Now it's one or the other since you now have a 64bit flash player in some form working.

Is it just me or are the characters, pictures and videos sharper too? I didn't change any settings on the PC--Just updated to IE11.

I wish I could see this 30% faster but my install did not work.
"not responding" then it "closes".

Any Help on rolling back to IE10? would be appreciated

Thanks

If you installed it as an update, like you should have, just go to Programs and Features and uninstall IE11. It will auto roll-back to IE10 (or whatever version you had before).

You may be right. I think I finally got all the dirt and dust out of my eyes from plowing but there's a cold front blowing in now stirring up more.

Sort files globally?
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. ...
