Internet Explorer on Windows 11? Yes you can… by accident!

So I discovered something bizarre completely by accident. You can load Internet Explorer in Windows 11 without using Microsoft Edge.

I installed a serial monitor app, and the installer launched a HTML document. Not sure how this bypassed the Edge redirect, but it did.

You can browse the internet as normal too…

I’ve attempted a various number of things via the command prompt and none seem to allow me to just open the page in iexplore.exe.

Mind blown.
