Start-> All Programs -> Silk -> Silk Test -> release notes


3) If the version of Internet Explorer is not supported, determine which version of Silk Test you are currently using.  From within Silk Test navigate to help -> About Silk Test Classic


4)      If the version of Internet Explorer is 10 and the version of Silk Test being used is 13.0 or below, you will have two choices:
