So long, Internet Explorer! Here's how to get started with a modern internet browser that will enable you to use all P21E features as intended.
🤯 End of Life for Internet Explorer
On June 15th, Microsoft ended its support for Internet Explorer (IE). This means it's time to stop using Internet Explorer altogether and move to a modern, supported browser like Microsoft Edge (without IE Mode), Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.
📳 Be in the Right Mode
If you use Microsoft Edge, be sure to disable IE Mode before you attempt to upload or validate data. You'll know whether IE Mode is enabled if the IE logo is present on the left side of the navigation bar.
