If it opens in a new window when a link is connected from a page that is run and accessed with IWebBrowser2, it was run with the previously installed IE.

2022.06.15 When IE11 support ends, I wonder if it will not be able to open in a new window when a link is connected,
or if it will run as Edge according to the change notice that IE is forcibly run as Edge when running.

    Hi @규헌 노 ,

    2022.06.15 When IE11 support ends, I wonder if it will not be able to open in a new window when a link is connected,
    or if it will run as Edge according to the change notice that IE is forcibly run as Edge when running.

    Exposes methods that are implemented by the WebBrowser control (Microsoft ActiveX control) or implemented by an instance of the InternetExplorer application (OLE Automation).

    As mentioned by Castorix31, the WebBrowser control will continue to work. And IE mode in Edge still requires IE components to support running.

    Regards,
    Xudong Peng
