Microsoft extends Edge browser support on Windows Server 2012 and R2 until October 2023

IT House January 24 news, earlier this month, Microsoft ended the Windows 7 and 8.1 support. In addition, Microsoft also stopped supporting the Edge browser on the outdated platform. However, a few days ago, Microsoft slightly modified the plan, and users of Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 will continue to receive updates to the Microsoft Edge browser until October 10, 2023.

Here’s what’s in the Microsoft announcement:

Microsoft Edge version 109 will be the last supported version on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 (version 110 and later will not be available). Version 109 will receive critical security fixes and fixes for known vulnerabilities until October 10, 2023, and WebView2 Runtime version 109 will be supported in the same way.

Also, Internet Explorer 11 is still supported on these operating systems as long as they are within the supported range.

It’s worth noting that extended support doesn’t mean you’ll also get new features or update to a newer version. Microsoft will only release the most critical security updates, and the browser will remain on version 109 until it ends support. Also, trying to install Microsoft Edge 110 and newer on Windows 7 or 8.1 shows that the OS is not supported by the installer.

IT Home understands that if your Windows 7 or 8 system cannot be updated to Windows 10 Or 11, using Firefox may be the only option, Mozilla still supports its browser on already outdated versions of Windows, but it shouldn’t be for long.
