Internet Explorer | End of Life

We have been using Internet Explorer since Windows 95, perhaps not so much in recent years since we started using modern browsers. Microsoft recently announced the retirement of the Internet Explorer desktop application. There are some organizations however that still rely on Internet Explorer for legacy sites who may be impacted by this announcement. These legacy sites can still be supported using the Microsoft Edge browser.

Microsoft Edge: Configure IE Mode (Part 2)

IE Mode on Microsoft Edge provides compatibility for legacy sites that require Internet Explorer 11. IE Mode enables users to access modern and legacy sites using a single browser. Users no longer need to switch between browsers to access legacy intranet sites. IE mode supports ActiveX controls such as Java and Silverlight, and it also supports Internet Explorer settings and group policies that affect Protected Mode and security zone settings. In this final post of the two-part series, I will create the Enterprise Site Mode List XML file and test the configured sites to confirm that the specified sites can be successfully opened in IE Mode on Microsoft Edge.
