Currently, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard support Internet Explorer (IE) 10. After January 14, 2020, IE 10 will not release any security or non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content changes for IE 10. Customers will have until January 31, 2020, to complete the transition from IE 10 to IE 11 to remain supported.
To ease the shift to a faster, more secure browsing experience, starting in the spring of 2019, commercial customers running Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard can begin using IE 11 in their test environments or pilot rings. To simplify deployment, you will be able to download IE 11 via the Microsoft Update Catalog. We will also publish the IE 11 upgrade through Windows Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) for all versions of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard later this year.
