Microsoft to shut down Internet Explorer and legacy Edge: support ends in 2021

Social9 Aug 20, 2020

Microsoft has confirmed that it will end support for the Internet Explorer 11 across all of its Microsoft 365 apps and services like Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook and more, on August 17, 2021.

Apart from this, the company earlier this year announced that it will be ending support for Internet Explorer 11 with its Microsoft Teams web app on November 30, 2020.

It will take some time for enterprise users of Internet Explorer 11 to transition to a new browser. To make the transition easy, Microsoft has added a new Internet Explorer legacy mode in the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser.

This will let enterprise customers access old sites that were specifically built for Internet Explorer, until the company completely decides to drop support for Internet Explorer 11 within Windows 10.

The company is also encouraging users to use the Microsoft Edge browser. In Earlier 2020, Microsoft announces the New Microsoft Edge and Bing.
