As previously announced, the Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop app has been retired as of June 15, 2022. IE11 retirement is occurring through two phases: (1) a redirection phase, currently in progress with devices progressively redirected from IE11 to Microsoft Edge, and (2) an upcoming Windows Update phase that includes IE11 being permanently disabled. The Windows security update “B” release that will permanently disable IE11 is scheduled to begin availability on February 14, 2023.
When this will happen
The Windows Update containing the permanent disablement of IE11 is scheduled to be available in the following releases:
- January non-security preview release, also known as 1C, scheduled for January 17, 2023
- February security release, also known as 2B, scheduled for February 14, 2023
The permanent disablement of IE11 will be included in all subsequent Windows Updates after the January non-security preview release and February security release.
