Internet Explorer 16 bit On Windows 8.

Also works on Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. But you must be running 32 bit Windows as 16 bit software does not work on 64 bit.

Internet Explorer 3 was in Windows NT4 and early versions of Windows 95. But Microsoft also made 16 bit versions of IE for Windows 3.1 and 3.11.
IE1, IE2, IE3, IE4 and IE5 came in either 16 or 32 bit ,depending on the Operating System.

So for a bit of fun I installed the 16 bit version of IE3 for Windows 3.11 on Windows 8. To see if it could run and it does.  I am surprised as I did not think it could run on 8 but here it is running on my 32 bit Windows 8.

Disable Windows Store In Windows 8.

This also works in Windows 8.1.

The Windows Store is part of Windows 8 and 8.1. While some people might want to use it to install Metro Apps. If you don't use it or never use Metro software it can be a waste of space.

You cannot delete or uninstall Windows Store as Windows might not work. But you can turn it off so that you won't have to deal with it anymore.
