I am using IE 11 and trying to open a document library in Windows Explorer. But this button is disable in IE 11. This button is enable in IE 10. Can some please let me know any workaround?

AFAIK, Explorer view should work with IE 11 too...by the way, have you tried to configure IE 11 in IE 10 compatibility mode?

I have tried but it is not working.

Please try following below:

 

1) Check if the value of the following Registry key is “1”:
 right-click or tap-and-hold the Start button and then choose Run, input “regedit” 
and then press Enter to open the Registry Editor.
2) Go to HKey_Local_Machine > Software > Microsoft > Internet Explorer >

Main and switch the value to 1.
3) Have you enable the ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer? You may refer to: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/genuine/ie-activex

4). Reset your Internet Explorer via Internet Options > Advanced > Reset Internet Explorer settings

If you still have issues go with Onedrive Sync option.
