Support for Server 2012 R2 after sunset of Google for Chrome january 2023 and eol october 2023

Copper Contributor

As Google is sunsetting support for Windows 7 and 8.1, users of Google Chrome are getting messages on Windows Server 2012 R2 RDSH hosts about this sunset.


Microsoft has announced end of support of Edge Chromium on Windows 7 / 2008r2. 


What is the roadmap on support of Edge on Windows Server 2012 R2 after Google sunsets Chromium?


Is Edge supported until October 2023 when 2012 R2 reaches the end of support? What about customers  with ESU (e.g. on Azure)?

Same problem here. Also Server 2012 R2 RDS Session Hosts. Edge support until Oktober 2023 would definitely be a good idea.

Tip: You can disable the message at the top of Edge with GPO. Look at
