Microsoft today released one more cumulative update. The patch KB5004123 is released to Insiders running Windows 10 build 21390. The Dev channel is frozen until the June 24 Windows event, so last three cumulative updates do not add anything new to the OS. Microsoft is testing its servicing pipeline.
Here is how you can open a website in Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge. In June 2022, Microsoft will stop supporting old Internet Explorer 11 in all Windows versions, as the company wants everyone to move to Microsoft Edge built on Chromium.

Google says the idea of hiding URL portions and query parameters in the Chrome address bar was a bad idea. The company removed the code for this feature from the Chrome code base.

Microsoft's official Windows 10 support documentation has just added more fuel to the fire of rumors that quickly spreads around the upcoming big Windows announcement. On June 24, 2021, Microsoft plans to unveil "the next generation" of Windows, and many think it will be Windows 11. Although back in Windows 10's infancy, Microsoft made a bold statement claiming Windows 10 to be "the last Windows version," many rumors point to the fact the company wants to supersede Windows 10 with a new version. The updated Windows 10 support documentation backs those claims.
Those who follow Windows updates know that monthly updates usually do not bring any significant or visible changes.

This time, updates, released on Tuesday 8, 2021, brought one new feature to all users running supported versions of Windows 10 on their PCs. That feature is "News and Interests."
