    Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement on June 15, 2022 FAQs


    Last Updated: 20 Mar 2022 at 10:31

    The future of Internet Explorer (“IE”) on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge. What does this mean for commercial organizations, IT admins, developers, and end users? Microsoft Edge brings you a faster, more secure, and more modern web experience than Internet Explorer. Also, Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode (“IE mode”), is the only browser with built-in compatibility for legacy IE-based sites and apps.

    As announced today, Microsoft Edge with IE mode is officially replacing the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on Windows 10. As a result, the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will go out of support and be retired on June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10.

    How will that work out?
    will they remove it entirely?

    what about programs that are hard-coded to startup IE, like some old video games maybe...?

    You'll need to run them in a VM

    The Read more link provided above says, "Additionally, the IE11 desktop application will be disabled through a future Windows 10 cumulative monthly update and will redirect to Microsoft Edge if a user tries to access it."

    I use the UK version of Microsoft Money last released in 2005. It doesn't need IE to be installed but it needs a reference to IE in the registry. I hope that continues to enable MS Money to function.

    That makes two of us. My Microsoft Money records go back to 1994, I'd hate to lose them.

    I've not - yet - found a suitable replacement for Money, especially one that can import all my data.

    Hi there

    I'd suggest any modern stock trading platform -- all free and you don't have to invest or deposit money with them. They all keep good track of balances and a lot of them have nice "What If" analysis as well -- far better than what Bloomberg or other financial TV shows give you too.

    Also EXCEL works pretty good -- depends on what you actually need Ms Money to do for you these days. If it's simply for "Balancing Bank accounts" EXCEL works IMO far better than anything else -- you can dynamically change tax rates, codes, VAT rates etc etc. Have a look at the myriad of available Financial functions in EXCEL.

    Cheers

    Isn't it funny how much of a mess it causes when you have lazy coders inside a company, reusing Chromium code for a browser instead of trying to do a decent browser?
    It was supposed that WaaS was the answer to keep IE or Edge updated in a consistent basis... Now people needs to replace their perfectly cappable programs to do the same with some other alternative.

    Probably the alternative will be way better and will have more features, but... wouldn't it take some downtime to relearn what you already know? Doesn't feel like it's the real meaning of "Being Productive"

    I mean, nothing against Edge Chromium, it's a pretty decent browser (I use it over Chrome tbh) and the integrations they added so you can run PWAs make it pretty useful, but...

    Dunno... maybe it's just me rambling. (But I think IE could have been a much better browser, in the right hands...)
