After upgrading to Windows 11, saved information and data from Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) might not be accessible if you did not accept to import it into Microsoft Edge before the upgrade. Note: If you have accepted to import your IE11 information and data into Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 before upgrading to Windows 11, your device should not be affected by this issue.

To safeguard your upgrade experience, we have applied a compatibility hold on devices affected by this issue to prevent them from installing or being offered Windows 11. Affected devices are those in which IE11 is the primary browser used or IE11 is set as the default browser. If your organization is using Update Compliance, the safeguard ID is 37820326.

Resolution: This issue was resolved in Microsoft Edge 99.0 for devices upgrading to Windows 11 and devices that have already upgraded to Windows 11. The safeguard hold has been removed as of March 31, 2022 for devices which have updated to Microsoft Edge 99.0 and later. If you would like to verify your version of Microsoft Edge or check for updates, follow the “Update once” section in Microsoft Edge update settings. Please note, if there are no other safeguards that affect your device, it can take up to 48 hours before the update to Windows 11, version 21H2 is offered.

Affected platforms:

  • ​Client: Windows 11, version 21H2
  • ​Server: None
