Announcing public preview of Cloud Site List Management for Internet Explorer mode on Microsoft Edge

Reminder: IE11 desktop application retires in 9 months on June 15, 2022 – Set up IE mode today (non-LTSC, non-Server)

As announced in MC257152 (May 2021), the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer mode (IE mode) provides legacy browser support within Microsoft Edge. Because of this, the IE11 desktop application will be retired on June 15, 2022. This means that the IE11 desktop application will no longer be supported and afterwards will redirect to Microsoft Edge if a user tries to access it.

With 9 months left before retirement, we highly recommend you start preparing today. The essential first step—Site Discovery—typically takes 3-4 weeks.
