@PandaMinarva-5211 From your screenshot, I think you're using Windows Server. Do you mean IE 11 is not installed in your Windows Server 2016?
Indeed IE 11 is not in the Add Roles and Features Wizard. IE 11 is a part of the Windows operating system so it should be existing in the system originally.
What is your Windows Server 2016 version and OS build version?
What does it show when you run Dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 in cmd as administrator?

Also tried following steps:


  1. Launch the Windows Settings app.

  2. Click on Apps.

  3. Beneath the heading 'Apps and Features' there's an entry called 'Manage Optional Features'. Click on it.

  4. A new menu opens. Click on 'Add a Feature'.

  5. Didn't find Internet Explorer 11 among the options to add.

Have you tried with Dism or PowerShell ?
(How to Manage Optional Features in Windows 10)
(IE11 feature is called "Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64")

Hi @PandaMinarva-5211

As far as I know, it's by design that there's no IE option in Add Roles and Features Wizard.

We can't add IE option in Add Roles and Features Wizard and we can only enable/disable IE using command on Windows Server 2016.
