As of tomorrow (15th June 2022) internet explorer will be end of life. After this, the browser will be disabled and will redirect you to use Microsoft Edge.
The workaround, if you need Internet Explorer for compatibility mode is currently to use Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge which will be supported until atleast 2029.
We highly recommend switching to a browser that is currently supported as you will receive software and security updates. Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox and Brave are all currently supported and receiving security updates.
Receiving security updates is important to keep you safe online and to protect you from new vulnerabilities and exploits.
Using out of date software leaves you vulnerable to attack, and as a result your computer can become infected with viruses, malware and ransomware.
For organisations, Microsoft detailed in their Q&A that the following items will be unaffected by this retirement:
Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge
Internet Explorer platform (MSHTML/Trident), including WebOC
Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on:
Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU)
Windows Server SAC (all versions)
Windows 10 IoT Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) (all versions)
Windows Server LTSC (all versions)
Windows 10 client LTSC (all versions)
