Microsoft won’t support the desktop version of Internet Explorer 11 from June 2022 on most Windows 10 versions. Microsoft has decided to move ahead with Microsoft Edge and discontinue supporting Internet Explorer, primarily used as a standby. However, it’s been in service for 25 years. The tech giant has decided to stop supporting IE 11 from June next year in a blog.
15 June 2022 will mark the end of only IE 11 and not the current Long Term Servicing Center (LTSC) inclusive of 1507, 1607, and 1809 which will be in use.
Internet Explorer Officially retiring on June 2022-Details announced by Microsoft
Earlier, they said that Internet Explorer 11 wouldn’t be supported in Microsoft 365 from 17th August this year. However, they declared that the Internet Explorer mode of Edge’s browser would be supported till 2029.
They decided this a long time back. Microsoft wants its users to switch to Edge before Internet Explorer11 support ends. But the apps and browsers based on Internet Explorer will, however, can still be accessed since there’s built-in Internet Explorer mode on Edge. Moreover, when sites are opened that need Internet Explorer, they will be opened in a compatibility mode. Microsoft wants to allow some more time for many organizations and IT companies (which is 2029, as said earlier) since many still use old versions of the apps and browsers not compatible with the modern-day pieces of stuff.
Edge has better web compatibility, which isn’t found in IE. The modern-day web is built for Chromium and not IE, an open-source browser used in Edge and Chrome. For more updates please stay tuned to MediaScrolls.
