Today, we’re announcing that Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) by this time next year.
- Beginning November 30, 2020, the Microsoft Teams web app will no longer support IE 11.
- Beginning August 17, 2021, the remaining Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support IE 11.
This means that after the above dates, customers will have a degraded experience or will be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services on IE 11. For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE 11. While we know this change will be difficult for some customers, we believe that customers will get the most out of Microsoft 365 when using the new Microsoft Edge. We are committed to helping make this transition as smooth as possible.
Is there a plan for how Internet Explorer specific features of SharePoint on-prem will work, following the retirement of Internet Explorer 11? Things like Open with Explorer or Open with Access.
the retirement information above only applies to SharePoint Online – not for SharePoint on-prem.
@Lee, I think their plan is to have people use IE Compatibility Mode via Edge. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/edge-ie-mode
