Microsoft Docs (docs.microsoft.com) was introduced back in 2016 in place of Microsoft Developer Network and Microsoft TechNet, a move by Microsoft geared toward providing enterprise documentation support with key features such as estimated reading time, content and site navigation, friendly URLs, and more. It was later announced that developers could easily access all their documentation under one URL, thus enhancing navigation and introducing the ability for developers to contribute.
And now, Microsoft Docs will be transitioning on to Microsoft Learn. Users will now be navigating through learn.microsoft.com/docs rather than docs.microsoft.com to access documentation . Despite this shift, users will stil be able to make use of all the key features that were available on Microsoft Docs on Microsoft Learn. What’s more, you will also be able to access all the bookmarks that you had made previously.
According to Erin Rifkin from Microsoft, “We’ve brought together all the technical content, learning tools, and resources that Microsoft has to offer in the new Microsoft Learn product family. Microsoft Learn is designed to help you get the most value from Microsoft products and services, so you can make the most impact through the work you want to do. Whether you’re innovating or troubleshooting a problem, technology, and the skills you need to use it are now within reach.”
