[German]In a post on 29 March 2022, Microsoft has pointed out that Internet Explorer on Windows will only run for three more months. Then support will ends and IE calls are be redirected to Microsoft Chromium Edge. However, this is only available for certain versions of Windows.
The issue came to my attention (agin) this week in the following tweet. Microsoft's Eric Van Aelstyn raised the issue again on 29 March 2022 in the Windows Blog in the article With 3 months left before IE retirement, new enhancements arrive in Microsoft Edge for IE mode.
On 15 June 2022, the desktop application for Internet Explorer will be retired for certain versions of Windows 10, which means that the browser will no longer be supported and can no longer beused. The retirement of Internet Explorer has been known since last year. Back in 2020, Microsoft stopped supporting IE 11 for Microsoft accounts and apps, as I reported in the blog post Internet Internet Explorer: No more support for Microsoft accounts and apps. The Microsoft Chromium Edge will take over the tasks of Internet Explorer with its IE Legacy Mode.
On Windows 10/11 machines with the latest updates , IE's COM objects were restored to their original functionality by Microsoft. These should continue to work even after disabling the IE11 desktop application.
In addition, Microsoft has addressed the issue of shared cookies between IE Mode and Microsoft Edge sessions. Shared cookies between IE mode and Microsoft Edge sessions now work bidirectionally, Microsoft writes. Apart from that, I had already explained in mid-March 2022 in the article Internet Explorer Desktop App retires on June 15, 2022 for which Windows versions Internet Explorer will be discontinued on 15 June 2022.
