Windows 7

The new Chromium-based Edge, which was released earlier this year, is already available for Windows 7 via an automatic download option. However, the browser is now available as an update via the in-house service Windows Update which is integrated into the operating system.

As revealed by the German site WindowsArea with a screenshot uploaded, the Windows Update user interface shows its new update Edge (KB4567409), which is about 80MB in size.

According to Microsoft, the new Edge Chromium will be connected to the taskbar and added as a desktop shortcut to Windows 7. However, it will not replace the Internet Explorer nor will the default browser in the system.

Microsoft has managed to make the Edge browser compatible with its older operating systems, after turning to its source code. Chromium. The company has previously confirmed that support for Edge in Windows 7 will last until July 2021.

Therefore, if you want to continue using the new browser and the older version Windows, you have at least one more year before you choose to go to Windows 10 or some other alternative.
