An Update to Edge is Coming

If you’re a PC user, you’ve probably seen information about the new version of Microsoft’s browser, Edge (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2020/01/15/new-year-new-browser-the-new-microsoft-edge-is-out-of-preview-and-now-available-for-download/). The new browser is based on the Chromium open-source project that Chrome uses.

Over the next several weeks, college-owned computers will be updated to the new version of Edge. The update will take place during the weekly maintenance windows. You should expect to see the icons on your desktop and taskbar change from the blue “e” to the new Edge logo. After the update, you will see a series of setup pages allowing you to personalize the display. Any items saved in the older version (home tabs, favorites, history, passwords, etc.) will be available in the new version.

Please contact the Help Desk if you encounter any unexpected issues during the transition.
