Internet Explorer has one foot in the grave, but Microsoft has decided to let customers choose when the last scraps of its old (and mostly unloved) web browser will be removed from their devices and a final farewell.

This occurs after Internet Explorer was disabled on some Windows 10 devices when users installed the Microsoft Edge (new default web browser for Windows) update released in mid-February. Microsoft warned from June to December last year that the legacy browser would be permanently disabled by a Windows update.

According to short announcement Microsoft, “Organizations will continue to control when Internet Explorer visual references are removed from their devices, if they have not already done so, using Disable IE policies“.

Despite the reference to “organization”, this option can also be used by individual users.
