Details:

As previously announced, the out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop application will be permanently disabled on certain versions of Windows 10 starting today, February 14, 2023. Devices that have not already been redirected from IE11 to Microsoft Edge will be redirected with today’s Microsoft Edge update. As is usual, this update will be rolled out over the span of a few days up to a week via Microsoft Edge’s progressive rollout.


As a reminder, IE11 has been out of support since June 15, 2022. Organizations that have already transitioned from IE11 to Microsoft Edge with IE mode will not be impacted by the disablement. Organizations that have not transitioned to Microsoft Edge with IE mode may face immediate business disruption. If you do experience any issues accessing an IE-based site after IE11 permanent disablement, you can add the missed site to your IE mode list to quickly fix the issue. If the issue persists, open a support ticket.


Removal of IE11 visual references, such as the IE11 icons on the Start Menu and taskbar, will begin after with the May non-security preview release, currently scheduled for May 23, 2023, and will be included in all subsequent Windows updates. For complete details, see the Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ.


When will this happen:


Starting today, all in-scope devices are scheduled to be permanently redirect from IE11 to Microsoft Edge. The update will be rolled out completely over the following days.

Clicking "Continue" will launch Microsoft Edge. IE11 icons or other entry points will redirect to Microsoft Edge. Users’ browsing data will be automatically brought over to Microsoft Edge from IE11 so they can seamlessly continue browsing.
