Starting in May 2021 the Hub is not support with IE11: browsing the hub in IE11 is no longer possible.
This article explains how to configure Edge so that it launches a standalone version of Internet Explorer running the plugin.
Credentials are not sent between Edge and IE11 > new hub login is required for the document when the first one is to be opened in IE Plugin. As long as IE11 isn't shut down other documents can be opened in IE11 from Edge without having to login again to hub, but every document that is opened in plugin triggers a new IE11 instance.
IE Plugin needs to be installed, but when running in Edge all qvw will show the menu option "Open app in IE Plugin" even if you don't have IE Plugin installed.
When clicking "Open app in IE Plugin" and IE Plugin is installed a stand alone IE11 will open and user is prompted to login to hub once more. After login is done the document is opened in IE Plugin.
If trying to open using "Open app in IE Plugin" and IE Plugin isn't installed, IE11 will open but after login a blank/white/empty screen will be shown in IE11.
All documents that are to run in IE-plugin needs to be opened from Edge using "Open app in IE Plugin"
