Internet Explorer 11 Retirement: Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge
Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) will officially retire on 15th June 2022.
This means that the IE11 desktop application will be retired from the 15th June and will not be supported from that date.
After 15th June, the IE11 desktop application will be removed from in-scope versions of Windows 10 via Windows update.
Who this affects:
This affects those still using the IE11 desktop application. This will also affect organisations that have legacy sites and apps with IE-dependencies.
What should you do?
IT admins, developers, and end users need to identify any Internet Explorer dependent sites used by your organisation and inform your IT provider.
To continue using a supported browser, transition to a modern browser, e.g. Microsoft Edge.
In the case that your organisation needs legacy browser support, you need to set up IE mode in Microsoft Edge as soon as possible to avoid disruption.
If your staff still use IE11, or if your organisation has legacy sites and applications with IE dependencies, please inform your IT provider as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please contact your IT Support Desk.
