so I had finished making my sites. One issue one of my peers brought up was that if using Internet Explorer, you cannot delete anything.

For example, I can create items just fine in Internet Explorer. In my site contents I created a new custom list called "test". I click on the ellipses in the top right of the app, and click remove and nothing happens, a small grey box outlines the ellipses and the web app stays there.

enter image description here

Now if I want to delete that web app, I must open up Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

What is causing this? And how do I fix it? I have not been able to find anything online about this.
