Microsoft will forcibly open some websites in Edge instead of Internet Explorer

I’m fully in favour of extending this forced “use the secure version, dummy” behaviour. I’d like to see it extended to Adobe Flash and maybe even old versions of Office. If you run a Helpdesk and have users (maybe BYoD) that get these redirect messages, be prepared to explain patiently that using IE is sooo 20th Century…:

[…] Since this is a pretty intrusive new behavior, Microsoft is taking care to provide group policies to enterprise customers so they can disable the forced IE-to-Edge behavior, or at least control some aspects of its behavior.

Obviously, this new action is only available on systems where both Edge and IE are installed. System administrators managing older workstations where only IE is installed don’t have to worry about this forced redirection to Edge.
