The era of Internet Explorer is officially ending.
On Tuesday, Microsoft confirmed that the company permanently disabled the out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 desktop app on certain versions of Windows 10 through a Microsoft Edge update.
Microsoft started redirecting those who try to open the familiar “e,” application to the company’s more recent browser, Microsoft Edge, in June – when Microsoft retired Internet Explorer.
Now, “all remaining consumer and commercial devices that were not already redirected from IE11 to Microsoft Edge were redirected with (Tuesday’s) Microsoft Edge update,” Microsoft wrote on Tuesday. “Users will be unable to reverse the change.”
