Browser Support

Today, you can use two browsers, Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge to create an assigned access single-app or multi-app kiosk experience.

Microsoft Edge Kiosk Mode

Available for LTSC starting in Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2021 LTSC

Microsoft Edge kiosk mode offers two lockdown experiences of the browser so organizations can create, manage, and provide the best experience for their customers. The following lockdown experiences are available:

  • Digital/Interactive Signage experience - Displays a specific site in full-screen mode.
  • Public-Browsing experience - Runs a limited multi-tab version of Microsoft Edge.

Both experiences are running a Microsoft Edge InPrivate session, which protects user data.

Internet Explorer 11

Internet Explorer 11 will be considered a legacy browser, in subsequent releases.

In anticipation of that, you can use Internet Explorer (IE) mode on Microsoft Edge. IE mode allows you to run legacy web apps as well as modern web apps in a single browser.


For in-support Windows 10 IoT Enterprise Semi-Annual Channel (SAC) releases, Internet Explorer 11 will reach end of support on June 15, 2022.

Internet Explorer 11 follows the Long-Term-Servicing-Channel (LTSC) Lifecycle for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC products.
