Internet Explorer Collection: Run Multiple IE Versions Simultaneously

One big limitation in Internet Explorer is that we can't run different IE versions on a single system. Its a big problem mainly for webmasters. They design a website but they can't make sure whether the site will look OK in all IE version or not? It might look perfect in IE7 but there are big chances that it might look broken in IE6.

Other browsers like Firefox, Opera, etc allow to run different versions of their browsers on a single system but Microsoft has not made IE in such manner.

So here comes the "Internet Explorer Collection". Internet Explorer Collection allows to run multiple IE versions on a single system. Even you can run them simultaneously. You need to download the EXE file, install it and at the time of installation, you can select which IE versions do you want to install:


The collection contains all IE versions from 1.0 to 8.0:

  • Internet Explorer 1.0 (
  • Internet Explorer 1.5 (
  • Internet Explorer 2.01 (
  • Internet Explorer 3.0 (3.0.1152)
  • Internet Explorer 4.01 (4.72.3110.0)
  • Internet Explorer 5.01 (5.00.3314.2100)
  • Internet Explorer 5.5 (5.51.4807.2300)

    ^^ You can install Windows 7 on a different partition. What problem are you facing in Windows 8? Did you try to clear browser cache and cookies? You can also try to install other browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, etc.

  • Just use the IE developer tools built into IE. Start IE. Press f12 Select Browser Mode and select the version of IE you want.
