The new Microsoft Edge browser, which has moved from EdgeHTML to the Chromium kernel, has caught the eye of many people, and it is not as limited to windows 10 as the classic Edge browser. The Chromium kernel-based Microsoft Edge browser is now available on Windows 7/ 8/ 8.1 / 10, or even macOS platforms. As for the Linux version, it is not clear when it will arrive.
Earlier this year, Microsoft opened a manual download of the Windows 7 version of the Microsoft Edge browser. More recently, however, Microsoft has also started delivering through the Windows Update channel.
Microsoft Edge will support users who do not want to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 through July 2021. Interested friends can manually check and install the KB4567409 update.
It is important to note that the Microsoft Edge browser on the Windows 7 platform is only for consumers, not for enterprise customers, compared to the version on the Windows 10 platform.
Microsoft explained that the update does not apply to enterprise devices, but rather windows 7 SP1/Windows 8.1 or later operating systems (including home/professional/flagship/getting started/Core versions).
Devices running on active Directory or Azure Active Directory domains are also not available for this automatic update.
When you install the new Microsoft Edge browser, Microsoft pins an icon on the taskbar and provides a shortcut on the desktop.
For users who have previously manually installed the new version of Microsoft Edge on Windows 7 devices, their shortcuts are also replaced and point to the most recently updated version.
It is important to note that Microsoft Edge on Windows 7 does not completely replace the default Internet Explorer browser on the old system.
Microsoft will not change the settings of the default browser if a third-party browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is already installed on your device.
