Microsoft Edge 44.18

Last updated on JUNE 16, 2020

Mar 06, 2021 If you've decided to (or are thinking about) installing Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser, you should be aware that it will replace the 'old' Microsoft Edge legacy on your Windows 10 PC. Microsoft Edge will de-register for the books and XML protocols that the next version of Microsoft Edge doesn't support. Users attempting to open these protocols will get a dialog that prompts them to choose a default app. Learn more about changes to books support at Download an ePub app to keep reading e-books. Edge Legacy has different versions according to different Windows OS build. If you don't want to downgrading your Windows version, I think you can test it in a VM with certain Edge Legacy version. I have a VM with Microsoft Edge 44.17763.831.0 and it's Windows version is 1809, OS build. See full list on docs.microsoft.com.

This article describes how Windows will be updated to support the next version of Microsoft Edge.

Important

Refer to the Microsoft Edge product team blog post about Microsoft Edge Legacy end of service.

Note

This article applies to the Microsoft Edge Stable channel.

Microsoft Edge and the Windows release cycle

The next version of Microsoft Edge features more frequent and more flexible updating capabilities. Because browser releases aren't bound to the Windows major releases, changes will be made to the operating system to ensure that the next version of Microsoft Edge fits seamlessly into Windows. As a result, feature updates will be released on a 6-week cycle (approximately). Security and compatibility updates will be shipped as needed.

Edge

Updates and the user experience

Updates won’t change the user experience until the Stable channel of the next version of Microsoft Edge is installed. Installing Microsoft Edge Beta, Dev, or Canary won’t trigger any changes in Windows. These browser releases will be installed alongside existing browsers.

When all the updates are applied AND the Stable channel of the next version of Microsoft Edge is installed at the system-level, the following changes will take effect on the system:

  • All start menu pins, tiles, and shortcuts for the current version of Microsoft Edge will migrate to the next version of Microsoft Edge.

  • All taskbar pins and shortcuts for the current version of Microsoft Edge will migrate to the next version of Microsoft Edge.

  • The next version of Microsoft Edge will be pinned to the taskbar. If the current version of Microsoft Edge is already pinned, it will be replaced.

  • The next version of Microsoft Edge will add a shortcut to the desktop. If the current version of Microsoft Edge already has a shortcut, it will be replaced.

  • Most protocols that Microsoft Edge handles by default will be migrated to the next version of Microsoft Edge.

  • Current Microsoft Edge will be hidden from all UX surfaces in the OS, including settings, all apps, and any file or protocol support dialogs.

  • All attempts to launch the current version of Microsoft Edge will redirect to the next version of Microsoft Edge.

    Note

    User-level installs won’t trigger these behaviors.

Along with the previous changes, there are changes that will happen regardless of whether the Stable channel of the next version of Microsoft Edge is installed.
