I have downloaded the hotfix, but it is still not working. how do I know if I am opening the correct IE?
I need to be able to open in explorer view and have searched many different ways on the net about how to do so and no one has given me a solution to fix this issue. Can anyone help?!

If the error is "The Control is currently disabled", that means the button is grey out and you cannot click it.
Make sure the SharePoint site is added inside trusted sites zone.
Make sure the ActiveX Control is enabled in Internet Explorer.
2.1 Select Tools --> Internet Options menu from the Internet Explorer.
2.2 Select the Security tab from the Internet Options dialog.
2.3 Select Local Intranet Web content zone and click Custom Level.
2.4 Make the following options available under ActiveX controls and plug-ins is Enabled.
Make sure your Internet Explorer version should be 32-bit.
3.1 In IE click Help from the top menu bar.
3.2 Click About Internet Explorer and check the version.
If its mentioned 256 bit then you have a 32 Bit IE installed, if its mentioned 64 bit then you have a 64 bit IE installed.

The problem could be with IE11 Edge mode. If you open Developer Tools > Emulation > Document mode > 10 it might help.
From developer's prospective there should be a tag in the head of the page to force IE use 10 document mode. This tag exists in OOTB sharepoint master pages...
