moderated Re: IE being removed from Win 10 20H2 and later, effective June 15th 2022


 

Hi,

My guess is that internet Explorer will become invisible, but some of the underlying technologies such as MSHTML module will continue to be made available. I’m sure Vispero will clarify this, but JAWS will continue to interact with controls powered by IE’s rendering engine.

Cheers,

Joseph

The blog said support would end, it did not say it would be removed.

Hello All,

          Even though this message is not related to JAWS, the impact of this change is so important, and it is so likely to affect quite a few members who still use IE routinely, the information needs to be shared.  My intention is information sharing only, as there's really nothing to discuss.  This is a done deal.

See the article on techcommunity.microsoft.com entitled, Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ.

Those in business settings where they are forced to still use IE for specific sites also should pass this information along to "the powers that be" so that they can be aware of the change that's coming.

You need to start making plans to transition away from IE now, if you have not done so already.
