Solved i need to uninstall IE9 under Windows 8. Any help out there?

Specs: windows 8
I have windows 8 installed on computer. I need to uninstall IE9 as it has no toolbar. Microsoft tells me to uninstall ie9 and it will automatically leave me with ie8. The problem is ie9 is not shown in the list of installed programs. Just a list of KB programs with a number following it. How do I know which one is ie9?

Are you running this from the Start Screen (Metro) interface? If you cannot make the toolbar appear from the information already given, try this:

Go to the Start Screen, right-click on the Internet Explorer tile and select “Pin to taskbar”. When you go to the Windows desktop, there will be an Internet Explorer icon in your taskbar. Clicking this will bring up the desktop version of the browser.

See if this will allow the menu bar to appear (as already given by others). Pressing the Alt key will also make it "temporarily" appear. If you prefer not to use the desktop then a new icon to IE Desktop can be created in the Start Menu.

EDIT: Removed an unnecessary word.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Patsena,

To uninstall Internet Explorer, press the Win + R keyboard combination and type appwiz.cpl into the run box.

From Programs and Features window, select “Turn Windows features on or off” hyperlink on the left pane.

Find Internet Explore and uncheck it. Click yes to continue.

Reboot the system for changes to take effect.

Thanks & Regards

On IE 8 and 9, the toolbars don't display by default. If you have a mouse and right-click the top of the screen near the tab, you should be able to select "Menu Bar" and any other Toolbars you want to see.

"I need to uninstall IE9 as it has no toolbar"

What do you mean it has no toolbar? If there's something missing, try right clicking in the toolbar area then select what you want enabled from the menu. Beware add-on toolbars - many of them are adware/spyware.
