Is there a way to test/validate the change coming to stable channel version 87 as detailed by this MS article?  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/edge-learnmore-neededge

 

I have both DEV and Canary builds of Edge installed on my machine but in my initial testing with IE 11 I am not being automatically redirected to Edge.  Thanks!

@Scott_Edgium Hi!  Are you trying to test on a managed device (for example: Enterprise or EDU)?  This feature will be available on managed devices starting on Microsoft Edge Stable version 87.  

 

One way to check if your specific device will redirect from IE to Microsoft Edge, is by going to the edge://settings/defaultbrowser URL and see if the "Let Internet Explorer open sites in Microsoft Edge" setting is available.  Thanks!
