Author: EM @ KING.NET

It's official. Microsoft older version of Internet Explorer will end of support by January 12, 2016. The last Internet Explorer (IE) version is 11 that runs on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

"Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical supports and security updates. Internet Explorer 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer, and will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

What does this mean? It means you should take action. After January 12, 2016, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for older versions of Internet Explorer. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware, helping to keep users and their data safer. Regular security updates help protect computers from malicious attacks, so upgrading and staying current is important." ( 2015, Microsoft)

If you are still using old version of Microsoft Operating System e.g. Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you might consider upgrading to the latest operating system Windows 10 that comes with the latest internet explorer EDGE. As of writing this article, the upgrade to Windows 10 is FREE.

You will never know when this free upgrade will last, so do it as soon as possible.
The best result of this upgrade is your system will be in a better position dealing the latest security updates. And Windows 10 is the best operating system produced by Microsoft. Don't take my word for it, see for your self.

When you create a meeting schedule for number of days , you will see an error  "This resource doesn't accept meetings longer than 1440 minutes".

I found nothing, so I've decided to write this article so other administrators will benefit and save time.
