2022/12/01 - Microsoft Edge Windows Browser Recommendation

As you probably know, Microsoft Edge is the web browser that replaced Internet Explorer. It works seamlessly in our environment and is the web browser that we are now recommending for work purposes. 

  • All of our managed computers and remote desktops will automatically log you into Microsoft Edge with your Microsoft 365 account.
  • Favorites and most settings will follow you wherever you log in.
  • “Managed Favorites” is a new feature we manage for sites commonly used at work. It will show up in the Edge favorites. 

While you can still use other browsers, Microsoft Edge is our recommendation and is fully supported.
