If Internet explorer icon is missing in Start menu then it can be added by doing the following steps.
- Right click on Start menu and select Properties
- Click on ‘Customize‘ button.
- Now in the ‘Customize Start menu‘ window select the check button ‘Internet’ and also select ‘Internet explorer‘ from the drop down list next to the check button. The drop down list shows all the browsers installed on your computer. If you select any other browser then that browser link will be added to Start menu.
