Preferred Solution: what is wrong with microsoft edge?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: what is wrong with microsoft edge?

Edge is still a work in progress. It is much better in TP since there is AdBlock available for it but even with this, MS has work to go yet.

I have setup Google as my default search engine in Edge.

If I open a new tab, and see "Where to next?" I have a problem that if I enter a search that has a "." it will fail.

i.e. Search for

"how to boot from NVMe m.2 SSD"

I get an error saying:
Hmm, we can't reach this page.

Try this
?Make sure you?ve got the right web address: http://how%20to%20boot%20from%20nvme%20m.2%20ssd
?Refresh the page
?Search for what you want

If I take out "." it works.
"how to boot from NVMe m2 SSD"

Has anybody seen this?

Answer:Microsoft Edge: Search bug or have I set wrong

Hi, it depends- if you mean an exact search using " " to exactly specify the search string as here:

Then you get no results. (That's DuckDuckGo in Firefox). Don't know why you get such an obscure message with Edge.

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder.

Microsoft Edge browser became really buggy all of a sudden. I've done a clean Windows install soon after that (WIn10 build 1607), but the problem is still there. I have tried resetting the browser only, but no success. GPU drivers are up to date (R9 380). It only happens in Edge, all other browsers are fine. When I made a new local account, there were no problems.

Video upload (AK1G) - vidme

This kind of a twitch happens every now and then and I have to restart the browser so I can use it normally. It happens in all kinds of situations, while browsing, being open in the background or being completely idle. The apps which are running simultaneously become unresponsive until I minimize/ maximize/ switch between them.

Is there a way to fix this without making a new account?

in a nutshell it's a microsoft browser, that is what is wrong with it.

In general the upgrade path to Windows 10, starting from a W7 machine that went to W8 and then to W8.1 wasn't very smooth, but in the end, I have a fresh installation of Windows 10 on my box (for the record, I had to resize the system partition but the message to do so was cryptic and I had to download a third-party repartitioning tool, I wasn't given the chance to preserve my apps because setup decided to change my default language and then informed me that I can't preserve my apps due to the different language settings and, finally, even though the installer assured me that there were no compatibility problems with my machine, my scanner is apparently incompatible).
Anyway, this thread is about Edge: Keyboard shortcuts don't work on it. CTRL+T, CTRL+W, CTRL+F... nothing works. Everything works in IE, but the oh so hyped Edge ignores them.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas?

I noticed over the weekend when I go to speedtest.net it shows the wrong location. I live on the east outskirts of London yet it thinks my nearest test server is Aberdeen / Edinburgh. If I go to edge, the home/start page which can be customised shows weather for Edinburgh! I have manually customised for London to fix this rather than let it auto detect. But it's weird. If I open the maps app it shows me on the map in the correct location!

its worth noting that I am seeing the same problem on my iMac when I go to speedtest.net so it's not a Windows problem but it's still left me scratching my head and also wondering why the maps apps on both machines get the location correct. Both connect via Ethernet.

on my iPad and iPhone which use wifi, launching the speedtest app gives the correct location/nearest server

Answer:Speedtest.net and edge show wrong location

I'd heard that speed test will find the server nearest where your internet provider's address is, I have to manually choose Manchester as that's the closest to me but automatically it can choose Maidenhead or elsewhere other than where I am.

Windows 10 felt in many regards like an operating system that was not ready for release back when Microsoft released it. This was the case for the new system browser Microsoft Edge as well, as it lacked a lot of features.

While it was highly optimized, it felt like a browsing shell more than a full browser in many regards. Microsoft worked on improving Edge, and it did so over time by introducing new functionality such as browser extensions.

Still, a first impression is usually one that lasts, and that is probably one reason why the vast majority of users on Windows 10 have switched over to Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi or any of the other third-party browsers.

So how does Microsoft get people to give Edge another chance? Ads was the answer apparently, as users have started to see taskbar advertisement on Windows 10 like the one spotted by Brad Chacos below.
These ads appear over the Edge icon in the Windows 10 taskbar, even when Edge is not open. They do appear only when Edge is not the default system browser but that covers the majority of Windows 10 systems.

Since it advertises Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Rewards, it is possible that the campaign is reserved to the United States. The reason for this is simple: Microsoft Rewards are only available in the US right now.

This is not the only ad that promotes Microsoft Edge that users may see however. Microsoft is pushing ads in the Action Center as well stating that Chrome is draining battery fast and that switching ... Read more

I am beginning to think that I gave Microsoft Edge a bad Rep. I switched to Google Chrome and now I am still having problems with logging onto web pages. I think that it may be a Windows 10 problem. I use CCleaner every night before I shut down so I know that it is not a "buildup" of excess files on my computer. At first Chrome was a little faster than Edge and I was satisfied but now the same old thing is happening. I have 8 Gigs of RAM. That should be enough to have a speedy computing experience. I do not know much about other Browsers such as Firefox or any other. Can anyone tell me what is going on? I have not tried IE. I can bring up IE with Cortana or just find it in the apps.

Any advice will be helpful,

Jay

Answer:Microsoft Edge Bad Rep.

Have you scanned with your AV for malware, or could it be the AV causing the slow performance ? Disable the AV to check.

Check Event Viewer and Troubleshoot (Control Panel/Security & Maintenance/Troubleshoot

Could software or apps be causing the issue ?

Lots of troubleshooting tips in the tutorials on this site and on the web. If all fails, consider a System Restore or Refresh.

Metro IE works so well it makes you wonder why Microsoft was so quick to dump it for Edge. Why not just improve IE for desktop and mobile? Maybe MS has a plan for Edge that I can't see yet.

Question: Microsoft Edge

Hello,
Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, Internet Explorer has apparently been replaced by Microsoft Edge. I experience difficulty with this new browser, in that it signals security problems for about every second website I want to go to - even absolutely reliable ones. If I click on the "continue anyway" button, nothing happens but the security warning reappearing. This blocks my access even to websites I need for professional use. Does anyone know how to get rid of this problem?
thank you

Internet explorer is still installed, just use that instead.

How do I enable or be able to sync my data on Edge if I format and freshly install windows in future? is this even possible or Microsoft is still working on it because I cannot find it anywhere to sign-in in the browser

Answer:Microsoft Edge

You can sync reading lists and favorites at the moment. Probably need to be signed in with a MS account to the computer, and probably need the latest updates from MS (The major Update everyone is talking about). Edge is still having stuff slowly added to it. Next is probably going to be [expanded] support for extensions.

Answer:Microsoft Edge

Friend of mine had same issue. He used a restore point to get edge to work again. Somehow it got corrupted. On another friends system where edge stopped working Firefox was placed onto a thumb drive and installed as a browser replacement in which they then were able to download malwarebytes and remove infection that killed edge. So these are 2 methods. 3rd method would be get all your data off of the computer and then perform clean install from recovery media.

Microsoft Edge is the rebranding / reworked IE for Win/10 but . . .




Users and companies that cannot load their websites or apps because of the new engine -- can always turn back to Internet Explorer, which won?t be pinned to the taskbar, but will instead be available in the Start menu.Click to expand...

hmm; Incompatibility and security issues are why many left IE in the first place. Users of Firefox, Opera and Chrome have no (or few) compatibility issues so why step back into the fire???
 

Answer:Will you opt for Microsoft Edge?

I read about this a while back (when Edge (the name) was first announced). Has something changed since then? I thought the part you quoted is for those terrible businesses that have websites that require IE to work. I think Edge is a lot more cool with web standards than IE (especially older IEs) and Microsoft is basically saying if there is some site that requires IE to work properly, you will still have IE to fall back on to.

Hello, can you check what happens in Safe Mode? Does Edge open then?

If not, try the powershell command in Safe Mode and check if Edge works (I'm assuming that works - I've not had to try it) then restart into Safe Mode and retry Edge.

From what you describe it sounds rather like something you are running or have installed may damage your Edge installation somehow, but that's only a guess.

I' typing known web addresses i.e. Yahoo, iMore | The #1 site for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and all things Apple!. Can any tell me what I'm doing wrong? I want to use EDGE sometime WITHOUT making it my DEFAULT browser.

Any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

Answer:Microsoft Edge not Working

When are in the "Where to Next?" page, you cannot use periods unless .com .gov .org, etc. For example: I want to search the Chevrolet 6.5 Turbo Diesel in a 1984 Chevy truck --> I cannot do what I just said because of the period between 6 and 5. Press the "Home" button and then you can use periods on the homepage which is MSN. You can change it to Google by simply:

1. Going to the triple dot in the top right corner
2. "Settings"
3. "Advanced Settings" in "Settings"
4. Turn on "Show the Home Button" if you already haven't then
5. Highlight what it says in the box under and change to Google and you should be able to go from there.

Now, when you go on Edge, always press the Home button, then you can be on your way. Even in a new tab.

Hope this helps your issue, if not please tell us what else is happening, or tell us if it worked or found a solution yourself.

Thanks!
M


Edit: You know, I just thought of another thing. I had this problem before too, press "Search for what you want" and that should work as well. I had that problem when it said that Google had the wrong address when clearly I didn't.

I have used edge for over a week now. I liked it initially but now its getting quite annoying. Here's why:No option to choose download location for files.Can't save images directly from the browser by dragging them to a folder. Can't open images in new tab.No full screen option.No option to stop flash videos(ads) from automatically starting. (chrome has an option which lets you choose when to run plugin content)Considerable lag while scrolling a newly opened webpage.Can't highlight a word and trigger a search.If Cortana is enabled, you have to highlight text > Ask Cortana > Scroll down > Search with Bing
(Its annoying.... It also ignores your default search engine option)If you have disabled location/cortana, this option disappears completely. In this case you have to copy the text > Open a new tab > Paste the text > Hit enter (Highly unintuitive)No "Save Link As" optionAfter opening a new tab you have to manually click in the search box most of the times. (It should happen automatically. Probably a bug)No option to print selected/highlighted contentYou can't reload/refresh a webpage if you are in Reading ViewInconsistent behaviour when you click in the address bar to copy/modify a portion of the url.

When my system first updated to Win 10 I spent sometime investigating all the new applications and one of them was Edge I decided right from the start that I didn't like it.

I used Revo-Uninstaller to remove it and I did a thorough search through the Registry to remove all traces of it. So thorough was my removal that there was absolutely no trace of it on my computer. But some time later I was using my wife's PC and I tried out Edge and I liked it. Now after much hunting (Googling) around the net I can find no way to re-install it or even download it. Every site I go to inevitably returns me to Microsoft which gives me no hint of how to re-install it.

I even determined to reinstall the latest update Version 1703 which was also a pointless exercise as I already have it. So in desperation I have come here to the site of all knowledge in the hope that someone will be able to point me in the right direction. Must admit that I did achieve a recovery of sorts which opened Edge (hooray I thought) and promptly closed it 30 seconds later. On Googling the problem I found that dozens of others had the same problem. Googling for a fix took me back to MS which was no help at all.

So any and all help will be very much appreciated.

Guys,

I wanted to share a recent experience I've had with edge crashing when it was opening a new tab itself or when I opened a new tab manually. When it would do this, edge would crash. The incident did not affect Internet Explorer 11.

I used a program called Privazer to run through it's cleaning procedure. Of which, compacted a file called WebCacheV01.dat located in C:\Users\*Account Name*\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache.

I chose not to install but instead run it.

When it was done, I was able to open new tabs again.

Thought I'd share if it helps anyone else.

Answer:New tab Microsoft Edge crash Fix

Well I should put my foot into my mouth. Unfortunately, the issue game back. Treid using privazer again and deleted webcache01.dat and now it closes when I press the new tab button. So I'm on the hunt with no viable solution yet.
