Internet Explorer

Windows users, may I have your attention please? Microsoft is giving you a final chance to upgrade to the newer Internet Explorer 11Internet Explorer 10 is not going to receive any new security upgrades after 2020, as it is moving towards its official end of support.

Initially, Microsoft plans to roll out Internet Explorer 11 Windows Embedded 8 systems and Windows Server 2012  from spring this year. This expected move by the company is expected to bring Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 in-line with each other. 

The users of Windows Embedded 8 systems and Windows Server 2012 will use pilot rings or test environments to run Internet Explorer 11. It will be done to ensure the smooth running of everything on the safest web browser version.

According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer 11 is going to be the latest version of Internet Explorer. Moreover, any version before Internet Explorer 11 is no longer going to receive any new updates. It’s a part of Microsoft’s latest tactic to push users towards Edge or IE11. 

Microsoft stated that most of its consumer PCs are already running either IE11 or Microsoft Edge apart from Google Chrome. All versions of Windows Embedded 8 Standard and Windows Server 2012 are going to receive IE11 through Microsoft Update Catalog.

Furthermore, Windows Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) will be used to publish the upgrade. It will be a lot easier for the users to migrate to Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 or 2019, or Windows 10 IoT as a result of an upgrade to IE11. 

It is highly recommended that you should not compromise the security of your sensitive data that is being shared through your web browser from time to time. If you are interested in receiving free security updates, you should upgrade to IE11 until January 2020.

Trust us, you are definitely going to love the fluid, faster, greater, performance of IE11 on your PC. You can easily download the update from either Windows Update or Microsoft Update Catalog.
