How to Install a Browser in Windows 7 E
Along with the three Windows 7 versions I told about along with the announced OS pricing, there will be two different versions for the UK consumers, Windows 7 E and Windows 7 N.
The OS with an “E” won’t have a browser installed by default i. e Internet Explorer 8. And Windows 7 N will don’t come with a media player installed i.e Windows Media Player 12.
Install a Browser in Windows 7 E
There are several ways by which you can install a browser on your Windows 7 E. Easiest would be to download the browser on some other computer and install it on your Windows 7 E from a USB drive.
On the other hand, you can also order Internet Explorer 8 fromÂ Microsoft Store which will cost you around $3.44. Amazon can also ship an Internet Explorer 8 CD right at your door step, but IE8 from Amazon will cost you $4.
I still don’t get the point why Microsoft will ship Windows 7 without a browser to the UK market. It isn’t that consumers in UK don’t use a browser, but Microsoft seems to have its own strategy behind that. Another point to be noted is that you can’t even download any updates in a copy of Windows 7 without a web browser.
