Microsoft has decided to relaunch a communication campaign to warn its users that Internet Explorer will definitely be dead on June 15.
Microsoft is once again warning the few organizations and people who still use Internet Explorer that the browser will be gone forever in a few months.
Microsoft announced last May that it would kill off Internet Explorer in its traditional form this year. The announcement came as no surprise, given that it was only a year earlier.
Now the Redmond company has posted an FAQ reminding people that Internet Explorer is being retired. The desktop app will no longer be supported on June 15, 2022 on newer versions of Windows 10. Shortly thereafter.
Microsoft understands that there are those who still rely on IE for compatibility or purely nostalgic reasons. The company is directing this small group to Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge.
It looks like Microsoft expects some entities to need access to IE for some time to come; Internet Explorer mode in Edge will be supported until at least 2029. But Windows 8.1 users will see the end of IE mode on January 10, 2023, and Windows 7 Extended Security Update users will lose it on January 15, 2023.
It’s time to say goodbye to Internet Explorer
It’s been years since Microsoft abandoned Internet Explorer, its iconic web browser. Since 2015, the tech giant has preferred to highlight Edge, its new web browser, better in every way. If it’s been several months that we know, Microsoft reminds that Internet Explorer will indeed disappear from the month of June.
Bye Bye Internet Explorer
This is definitely the end for Internet Explorer. Since the June 15, 2022Microsoft’s web browser will no longer be supported by Windows 10, or at least the majority of versions, and will no longer work on most websites.
If for many years, Internet Explorer dominated the web browser market, it ended up running out of steam and being overtaken by its competitors such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Despite everything, the browser is still used by many Internet users around the world.
However, Internet Explorer is regularly singled out and mocked for its legendary slowness. It has even become a recurring joke on the web and social networks…
Today, Microsoft is betting everything on Edge, its new default browser. More modern, faster and more secure, this is the future of the tech giant. It incorporates an “IE” mode to facilitate the transition of users from Internet Explorer to Edge. The latter, temporary, will allow you for a while to access old Explorer-based websites and applications directly on the new browser.
Microsoft’s little reminder should encourage die-hard Internet users to switch to Edge in the coming months. The browser will, however, gradually disappear. “The Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop application will be retired on June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10,” Microsoft said in a statement. Thus, from the month of June, Internet Explorer will be a relic of the past.
Just in case, Microsoft reminds that IE 11 will say goodbye on June 15
Internet Explorer will stop crawling on June 15
A little less than a year ago, Microsoft announced the death of its illustrious Internet Explorer browser. An end scheduled for June 2022, while Internet Explorer is still used by a few million Internet users around the world. Today, Microsoft is in charge of reminding users that the future of Internet Explorer is in Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft confirms again that the Internet Explorer 11 application will be retired on June 15. “The IE11 desktop application will no longer be supported and will be redirected to Microsoft Edge if a user tries to access it,” explains the American giant.

But apparently Microsoft decided to do a little reminder to inform the few people who had missed the information. Namely that its Internet Explorer browser will no longer be supported from June 15th.
Microsoft invites the last users of IE to migrate to a more modern solution, and in particular Microsoft Edge based on Chrominum.
Internet Explorer 11 desktop application is retiring on June 15, 2022
As previously announced, the future of Internet Explorer on Windows is in Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer mode (IE mode) provides support for legacy browsers in Microsoft Edge. For this reason, the Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop application will be retired on June 15, 2022 for some versions of Windows 10. This means that the IE11 desktop application will no longer be supported and will then be redirected to Microsoft Edge if a user tries to access it.
Microsoft Edge browser gets its worst feature yet – Internet Explorer
Last year, Microsoft officially announced that its flagship browser, Internet Explorer, will be released in Almarai on June 15, 2022. However, will live on for a few more years via IE mode, for those who still rely on older apps and sites that require IE11.
Microsoft strongly encourages users and organizations to upgrade to a new browser, such as Edge (or literally anything else). This feature will remain in place until January 9, 2029 for some versions of Windows, so you have less than seven years to complete this step if you haven’t already.
Support for IE11 will end first on Windows 10 PCs where it’s installed, and users will see it go into effect on June 15. Soon, Microsoft will remove Explorer from all Windows 10 PCs (and prompt users to download Edge). The June deadline is also the same for those using Windows 10 IOT 2019 and Windows Server 2019.
