Chromium-based Microsoft Edge arrives on Windows 7 via Windows Update

It also started to be offered for Windows 8.1 through this platform

The Microsoft Chrome-based Edge was released by Microsoft in January this year and began to be offered via Windows Update for users of supported versions of Windows 10 earlier this month of June. Now the company has started to do the same with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 (Microsoft Edge arrives on Windows 7 and 8.1).

Remember that Microsoft officially ended support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020, which means that the operating system should stop receiving new features and security fixes. Even so, this did not prevent Microsoft from making some emergency fixes available for this operating system.

For users of Home, Professional, Ultimate, Starter or Core editions of Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows 8.1, the new Microsoft Edge arrives as the KB4567409 update. This update targets home users, not business users . Computers with these editions and which are also part of an Active Directory or Azure Active Directory domain will not receive the update via Windows Update.

According to Microsoft documentation , Windows 7 users must meet the following prerequisites before installing the new Microsoft Edge from Windows Update:

– You must have update KB4474419 installed. This update was released in September 2019.

– You must have update KB4490628 installed. This update was released in March 2019.

After installed from Windows Update on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge will have shortcuts attached to the taskbar and desktop of these operating systems. The browser will also not replace Internet Explorer or change the user’s choice to the default browser.

Chromium-based Microsoft Edge is compatible with the extensions currently available for Google Chrome and also supports the extensions available on the Edge Add-ons page .

The browser offers features like syncing settings, passwords and extensions, privacy features like Crawl Prevention, support for Google Chrome themes, and more. Users can obtain more information about the browser by visiting microsoft.com/edge.
