    Yahoo no longer supports IE 11


    Noticed on my laptop (first one I updated to the Anniversary update) my email is set to "basic" with no extra's or other bells and whistles and can't be changed. When I open it from my browser it comes up with a message that I need to run a supported browser. I clicked on the FAQ's and another information link at the bottom of my email inbox page and that when I found that IE11 is no longer supported with security and other improvement updates.

    I use My Yahoo as my home page and Yahoo webmail through my ISP ATT, used Edge to check things out on the upgraded laptop and it works ok, yahoo webmail works as it should. It was a surprise (not really with some of the shenanigans that have went on with forcing W10 on users) that IE is now unsupported.

    There are many alternative browsers around, I think I'll give Edge another try and see if it's moved forward enough to be "ready for prime time" When I was on the insider program it definitely wasn't ready yet, tried again after RTM when I left insiders and still the same. Edge just wasn't ready yet, it seemed to be faster, but had far less features than IE.

    I have two more of my computers and both of my wife's to update yet. I do have one done so I can give it another try, I'm still going to upgrade all the computers, just might not be right away now.

    IE is still in 10 and it's still supported with security updates. MS is not going to do anymore development to it and in some time in the future it will be dropped.

    The title of this thread is absolutely not true. To quote Microsoft

    How long will the most current version of Internet Explorer remain supported?

    Internet Explorer is a component of the Windows operating system and the most current version will continue to follow the specific support lifecycle policy for the operating system on which it is installed. Internet Explorer 11 will be supported for the life of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

    Older versions of ie are no longer supported, but ie 11 is and will continue to be.

    Actually it's not quite that simple.
    Vista is still in support for a little while longer (until April 2017 I believe), and Vista won't run IE10 or IE11.

    So the latest version Vista supports is IE9, and therefore IE9 is still supported, but only on Vista and also some versions of Windows Server.

    IE10 is still supported if you use the original version of Windows Server 2012 (which corresponds to Windows 8, as opposed to Windows 8.1)

    Even IE7 and IE8 are supported in Windows Embedded.

    The original question was about Windows 10.

    Title was unintentionally misleading, I will update it. As I looked into it farther it appears the "Browser no longer supported" message is coming from Yahoo. The first snip is from the message on my email page.

    The second one is from the help page I went to after clicking the "Upgrade your browser" message in the snip above. On that page clicking on the "Help" link at the bottom of this page https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-d...pressions=true brings me to a page with snip below

    So apparently in my case what I'm seeing tells me that IE11 in Yahoo web mail is considered an unsupported browser.

    I would assume that Yahoo wants its users to make use of a browser they know is getting security updates that they find appropriate. And IE is not up to par for them.

    It appears I went off half cocked before looking into it a little farther, I was wrong.

    I did try and change the thread title and don't know how, I was able to change the subject line but not the thread title, I'll mark it solved to limit my embarrassment, in the words of the immortal Emily Litella (RIP Gilda Radner) nevermind

    Good to hear that it's a non issue.

    It's not that big a deal, don't worry. See if you like the title better now.
