Microsoft disables VBScript by default in Internet Explorer 11

The August 13 Patch Tuesday is just around the corner, and it comes with some important changes for Internet Explorer users.

In 2017, Microsoft started the process of disabling VBScript in Internet Explorer 11. This move came as a preparation step for Windows users to be ready for VBScript to be disabled by default.

Say goodbye to Internet Explorer

In the next cumulative update for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1, on August 13th, 2019, VBScript will be disabled by default. The same change is already in effect on Windows 10 since the last cumulative update from 9th of July.

The change to enable or disable the VBScript will still remain an option for Windows users in the registry, as Microsoft stated:

The settings to enable or disable for VBScript execution in Internet Explorer 11 will remain configurable per site security zone, via Registry, or via Group Policy, should you still need to utilize this legacy scripting language.

It seems like Microsoft is focusing more on their Chromium-based browser, Edge, and is leaving Internet Explorer behind.

Internet Explorer will remain an enterprise-only option, and the IE mode will be removed from Edge.

Microsoft is slowly trying to make the transition to the new Edge, recommending users to jump on the Edge train, and with Windows 10 20H1 in the spring of 2020, Edge will probably be the only option.

Can you remember the last time when you used Internet Explorer?
