Microsoft has officially retired Internet Explorer, ending support for the browser on June 15, 2022.

After 25+ years of helping people use and experience the web, Internet Explorer (IE) is officially retired and out of support as of today, June 15, 2022. To many millions of you, thank you for using Internet Explorer as your gateway to the internet.

The company is encouraging users to switch to its new browser, Microsoft Edge.

Incremental improvements to Internet Explorer couldn’t match the general improvements to the web at large, so we started fresh. Microsoft Edge is a faster, more secure and modern browser—the best browser for Windows—designed for today’s internet. But we haven’t forgotten that some parts of the web still rely on Internet Explorer’s specific behaviors and features, which is why Microsoft Edge comes with Internet Explorer mode (IE mode). Regardless of the site or standard—old or new—you can access what you need in Microsoft Edge with new modern features to make your time online even better.

Over the next few months, Microsoft will begin redirecting users to Edge with IE mode. You'll still see the IE icon; however, launching the shortcut will open Edge. Eventually, Microsoft will permanently disable Internet Explorer as part of a future Windows Update.

As part of this redirection process, users will have their data like favorites, passwords and settings imported from Internet Explorer. The redirection process will also add a “Reload in IE mode” button to the toolbar in Microsoft Edge, making it easy to open a page in IE mode. Edge will even ask if you'd like the page to open in IE mode next time, checking back every 30 days to make sure IE mode is still needed for the site.
