Microsoft has decided to allow customers to choose when the last bits of Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) will be removed from their devices.

This comes after IE11 was disabled across some Windows 10 platforms when installing a Microsoft Edge update released on February 14.

It also follows previous warnings from June and December 2022 that the legacy web browser would be permanently disabled via a Windows update.

"Organizations will continue to maintain control over determining the timing to remove IE11 visual references from their devices, if they have not already done so, by using the Disable IE policy," Microsoft said today.

"Over the coming months a small subset of exceptional scenarios where IE11 is still accessible will be redirected to Edge, ensuring users access a supported and more secure Microsoft browser," the company added.

Sad to see the end of IE. End of era. Moving to Chromium/Edge is probably the best decision MS has made in the last 15 years.
