Beginning Monday, April 28, the Core Computing Division will upgrade older Internet Explorer versions to version 9 to supply necessary functionality for upcoming service improvements. This change will not affect servers or Accelerator Division computers.
All affected users will receive email notifications from the Service Desk with upgrade dates and instructions. At the end of the day assigned for your upgrade, please log off your computer, but leave it powered on. Laptops should be left at work, plugged in, with the lid open.
The most notable difference between Internet Explorer 9 and older versions is that the favorites bar is not turned on by default. Read about how you can change this setting.
The Core Computing Division staff will make every attempt to minimize the potential for negative impact by performing this upgrade after work hours. Staff will work as quickly as possible to remediate any issues that occur.
