Supported Versions of Internet Explorer

Microsoft has announced that as of January 12, 2016, versions 10 and earlier of Internet Explorer will no longer be supported. According to Microsoft, after that date, “there will be no more security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates.”

Using a version of Internet Explorer that is no longer supported puts the security of your computer, your computer accounts, and the information stored on your computer at risk.
