How to prevent Internet Explorer from redirecting to Microsoft Edge on incompatible sites? First things first: Internet Explorer is a fossil whose only acceptable destination in the shortest possible time is to disappear once and for all. Using Internet Explorer today is nonsense that is only justified on rare occasions.

Having said that, if you are aware of the problem of using Internet Explorer nowadays, but you still do it for whatever reason and the new redirection policy of Windows 10 is getting on your nerves, avoiding it is a matter of changing a couple of options in both browsers.
As we informed you, Microsoft is trying hard to get people to stop using Internet Explorer and switch to a modern web browser, Microsoft Edge if possible, and the latest invention of the company is to automatically run Microsoft Edge when you are browsing with Internet Explorer on an incompatible site. Here’s what we’re going to explain to you now: how to avoid redirection.
How to prevent Internet Explorer from redirecting to Microsoft Edge on incompatible sites?
If this has already happened to you and you want to prevent a site that Internet Explorer detects as incompatible from opening it directly on Microsoft Edge, the first option that you have to deactivate is in the Internet Explorer itself. Open the browser, enter the configuration and advanced options section, look for the option “Enable third-party browser extensions” and uncheck the box. Apply and accept.
Please note that unchecking this box will disable all browser extensions, not just the ones responsible for running the redirect.
Next, open Microsoft Edge and enter the settings in the “Default browser” section. In the drop-down menu that indicates “Allow Internet Explorer to open sites on Microsoft Edge”, change the option to “Never” and disable -if enabled- the option “Allow sites to reload in Internet Explorer mode.”
This last step is only necessary if you want to eliminate any possibility of the behavior being modified at any time. And that’s it. You can now surf with Internet Explorer like crazy and without any distractions other than the errors you find in your wandering on the Web.
