Description


The accelerator button that used to appear on earlier versions of Internet Explorer is now missing in the Preview version of Internet Explore 11.

All the options to make the accelerator enable and disable are available. Making changes to any of these options does not bring it back.

“For a significant percentage of users, it was a source of confusion and visual noise in the user experience.”???


Like this:
Set to disabled by default, and can be manually enabled in the settings?

To state that you (Microsoft) removed the accelerator button in IE11 because "for a significant percentage of users, it was a source of confusion and visual noise......", is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard!!!!!!!!!!!!! Confusion and visual noise!!!!!!!!!!!!! How about dealing with the "confusion and visual noise" of your OS instability instead!

The removal of the accelerator icon is really disappointing. I used it all the time. Am considering reverting to an earlier IE version or using a different browser.

Very disappointed. I used the accelerator icon all the time, from the time of IE8 on XP. I don't like the decision Microsoft has made to simply remove the feature. A brain-dead (sorry) compromise is providing a toggle. I hope I can readjust myself quickly.
Probably I'm the minority, but I'd like to see the statistics, both for general users and Pro users.
Thanks and good luck to you guys.

I liked the accelerator button, that's a shame, most people don't know how to use anything on Windows and make it a hobby to complain. Stop listening to the public and removing great features just because people can't figure it out.

Thank you for your feedback. We have removed the accelerator button in IE11. For a significant percentage of users, it was a source of confusion and visual noise in the user experience. For users who enjoy the functionality (and many of us on IE still do), you can right click on the selection to get to the accelerators.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team
