      Report: 47% of enterprise Windows 10 PCs may be affected by IE11 retiring tomorrow

      ..the results of a recent survey have surfaced, claiming that a whopping 47% of Windows 10 enterprise PCs “will” be affected by the retirement of IE11. This claim comes from Lansweeper, an IT asset management firm, which audited 9 million devices across 33,000 organizations.

      Although Lansweeper says that 47% of Windows 10 PCs will be affected, it is important to clarify what the term “affected” means. In this case, it doesn’t necessarily refer to Internet Explorer usage, it simply measures the share of supported versions of Windows 10 in enterprise environments, which will be affected in any use-case involving IE11 moving forward…

      After end of support, Internet Explorer will still continue to work for a time. From the documentation you provided, Internet Explorer 11 will eventually be disabled.

      The second phase of retirement is the Windows Update phase. After the redirection phase completes, IE will be permanently disabled through a future Windows Update on all devices with Windows platforms that are in-scope for IE retirement.

      Note that end of support and disabled are not synonymous.
