I recently upgraded my machine to Windows 10 and when it came time for a client meeting over WebEx was dismayed to see the following error:

webex-not-supported

WebEx won’t work with Windows 10? Oh no! I tried Chrome, IE, and Firefox, but it wasn’t working in any of them. I thought maybe I’d have to set up a virtual machine just so I could use WebEx, but this would still be problematic if I wanted to share my Windows 10 desktop. Eventually, though, I found a workaround.

  1. Download and install the IE Tab extension for Chrome.
  2. Open the tab by clicking on its icon in the top-right of Chrome.ie-tab-for-chrome
  3. In the tab’s address bar, paste in the URL for your webex meeting.ie-tab-address-bar

The WebEx meeting should load and work fine in Windows 10 at this point. Why the IE Tab for Chrome works and IE itself doesn’t is a mystery to me, but at least there’s a workaround.
