An end foretold. Internet Explorer is not supported.

Don’t worry; if you use Internet Explorer as your usual browser, You wouldn’t be left empty-handed, as Microsoft Edge, released in 2015, has become its replacement.

Microsoft Edge is the new bet for the Microsoft company. As a form of acclimatization, the new browser has IE Mode, which allows you to navigate as if you were in Internet Explorer.

If you already have Windows 11 installed, you won’t have to do anything because you already have the MSHTML engine integrated into the OS that allows IE mode to work. Still, if you continue with Windows 10, you must leave Internet Explorer installed on your computer; if you uninstall it, IE mode will stop working.
How do I install Internet Explorer Mode?

First, we should write the following in the address bar of the new browser: edge://settings/default browser and then click on “enter”. After this, it is important that we select the “on” option in the “Allow sites to reload in Internet Explorer” option and finally restart the browser.

Why is IE Mode useful?

The Internet Explorer Mode in Spain will be of great help to us, since all public administrations use this browser to communicate with the Spanish.

It was a tool that was used above all in signature and authentication procedures. The Government of Spain has already announced that our public administrations have installed all the necessary updates to be able to continue with their work in the same way as before.
What happens to certificates already installed in Internet Explorer?

Although no cases have been reported yet, since Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Microsoft, it is possible that there may be some problems when using the digital certificates that we already had installed in the browser. Do not worry, according to the Secretary of State for Digitization (SGAD), by installing Edge you can carry out the procedures that previously could only be done with its predecessor.

This IE Mode will not be final, it is planned to be removed from the new browser by 2029.
