Support for Older Versions of IE Ends January 12

Internet Explorer logo

On January 12, Microsoft is dropping support, including patches, for older versions of the Internet Explorer (IE) Web browser for Windows 7 and 8.1 because they can create security risks. Check that you are using the latest version—IE11—or upgrade to it now. You can also use another supported Web browser. If your computer is part of UW-IT’s Nebula Managed Desktop service, the update is taken care of for you.
