Millions of PCs will lose Internet Explorer access tomorrow with an 'irreversible' update, as Microsoft is finally killing off Internet Explorer 11 for good tomorrow for Windows PCs - it will permanently switch users over to the Microsoft Edge browser.
Internet Explorer users could be in for a nasty surprise tomorrow, as Microsoft is releasing a major update to permanently disable its aging browser software.
The US tech giant is planning to release an 'irreversible' update tomorrow that will block access to Internet Explorer 11 and force users to switch to Microsoft Edge or an alternative browser.
Clicking on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop will launch Microsoft Edge once the update is applied, and users are powerless to change this. Users of Internet Explorer 11 are being warned to save key information such as their passwords or bookmarks to avoid disruption when the update is released tomorrow.
Microsoft said that the update which disables Internet Explorer "is intended to provide a much better user experience and help organisations transition their last remaining IE 11 users to Microsoft Edge".
The future of Internet Explorer ("IE") on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge. What does this mean for commercial organizations, IT admins, developers, and end users? Microsoft Edge brings you a faster, more secure, and more modern web experience than Internet Explorer. Also, Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode ("IE mode"), is the only browser with built-in compatibility for legacy IE-based sites and apps.
As announced today, Microsoft Edge with IE mode is officially replacing the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on Windows 10. As a result, the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will go out of support and be retired on June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10.
