In an FAQ, Microsoft has stated that support for Internet Explorer will only be discontinued on Windows 10 20H2 and higher.

Internet Explorer 11 desktop applications on other versions of Windows, including Windows 8.1; Windows 7 ESU, Windows SAC or Windows 10 IoT LTSC are not affected by the change.

Microsoft Edge, which has a built-in Internet Explorer mode, serves as a replacement for the long-lived browser.

“Microsoft Edge not only offers a faster, safer, and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it’s also able to address a key concern: compatibility with older, outdated websites and applications,” Microsoft said in a blog post last year.

Here’s how to prepare for exit

First, users should enable Internet Explorer mode in Edge.

To do this, open Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, then tap Settings and more in the top-right corner.

Select the Settings option and click on Default browser.

In the Internet Explorer Compatibility section, check Allow websites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode, and then click Restart.

Users also have the option to make Edge their primary browser.

To do this, go into the Edge settings menu and then into the “Profiles” heading in the left menu.

From there, tap on “Import browsing data” and select “Microsoft Internet Explorer” from the top drop-down menu.

Next, click “Import” and Edge should configure itself the same way Internet Explorer was set up.

Microsoft said they are not advising users to avoid or skip Windows updates to keep IE11 “because Windows updates contain critical operating system security patches.”
