Microsoft Pushing for Users to Switch to Edge

No Comments

Internet Explorer users will be pushed to Edge forcibly

Starting in November 2020, Microsoft users will find that Internet Explorer will refuse to load the URL of the site they are trying to load. Instead, they will be redirected to Edge and see a message explaining why the site is no longer available through IE.

Microsoft has been rolling out this feature gradually since the summer, but they will move to a stronger transition in November.

The stronger push comes with the release of Edge 87. After the release, all users will notice the IE-to-Edge change.

There are group policies for enterprise customers so that they can disable the forced IE-to-Edge behavior.

Pages will only fail to load on IE and push users to Edge if both IE and Edge are installed. So, older workstations with only Internet Explorer installed won’t see any changes.

As always, if we can be of help with your network or computer, give us a call here at RHYNO Networks. (855) 749-6648
