Internet Explorer has been removed by Microsoft
Internet Explorer retires on June 15, 2022, after which it will be out of support and permanently disabled. Following industry best practices, the IE desktop application will be progressively redirected to Microsoft Edge over the following months, and ultimately disabled via Windows Update, to help ensure a smooth retirement.
Customers are encouraged to move to Microsoft Edge, which provides support for legacy and modern websites and apps.
End of an Era
Internet Explorer was first released in 1995, making it 27 years old! It was first released with the Windows 95 operating system as an add-on package.
Going forward, if you need to access your legacy, Internet-Explorer based sites and apps, you can use Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode, which will officially replace the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application starting next year.
