It is past time to say goodbye to Internet Explorer. That is not the case this time. It was simply a warm-up for what was to come later. Although it has been a long time coming, Internet Explorer is finally being phased out. Since last year, there has been a rumour circulating that Internet Explorer will be phased out of existence permanently. For the second time, Microsoft is stating that the Internet Explorer window shortcut would be removed from all operating systems on June 15, 2022.
In a new warning to users, Microsoft has published a formal statement. The desktop version of Internet Explorer will be deleted from the latest versions of Windows 10 starting in June, according to the announcement. After that period, anyone who continues to use Internet Explorer will likely be able to get away with it for much longer; nevertheless, Microsoft intends to upgrade PCs in order to completely remove the application in the near future.
In the following days, when customers activate the browser button on their computer desktop, they may be astonished to see Microsoft Edge show instead. For the Windows operating system, Edge will be responsible for the majority of the basic internet-browsing functionality. Although it can be harmful at times, it is not always so. While we continue to be critical of Microsoft’s efforts to force Edge on users, such as through the Windows search tool, we are more positive about the product overall. Due to the fact that it is built on Chromium, just as Google Chrome, it is not a terrible browser any longer.
The Internet Explorer browser will still be used by some consumers and businesses in 2022. They are not in great numbers, either. In order to ensure compatibility with all of Internet Explorer’s idiosyncrasies, Microsoft is maintaining an Internet Explorer interface in Edge. This setting will remain in effect until the year 2029.
