SharePoint Team Services Features Supported by Different Browsers and Operating Systems

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

A Web site based on SharePoint™ Team Services from Microsoft works best in Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator 4.0 or later, installed on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows® 98 or later. Some features, such as Folder view in document libraries, require Internet Explorer 5 or later. If you are using another Web browser or operating system, some pages may not display properly, and some features may not work.

This article provides detailed information regarding which features are supported in a variety of software configurations. Configurations not listed here, such as a Web browser on a device that's running Windows CE, are not actively supported, even though some SharePoint Team Services features may in fact work in such environments.

Note: Netscape Navigator 4.08 is not supported by SharePoint Team Services on any operating system.
