I'm finding this isn't working as expected. Bit of history first...
This is something I wanted to do on my two W10 installs some while back. I asked on the forum (and it could of been Cliff or Edwin who replied... thanks guys always a great help in these matters) and the method given was to create a desktop shortcut and paste in
%windir%\explorer.exe microsoft-edge:http://address of site you want
That would create a shortcut that could be pinned as a 'tile' and/or pinned to the taskbar. It worked well.
The problem now.......
I'm running build 14393.3 version 1607 because I fancied a look at the latest fast ring offering and installed this as an upgrade install which would retain all my progs and settings (it has). However I'm finding the custom tile doesn't open just the site in question as it used to do but now opens another three tabs alongside it, one is Bing, the next Google and the third my Outlook email.
(Note... these three tabs are ones that I want and are the ones I initially set up when first installing W10 months ago... I just don't want them to open under command of the custom tile)
So the supposedly 'single site' tile now opens all of them at once. It never did this before, it worked correctly.
So I now delete the custom tile and try the method in this Tut and find that that to is giving identical results. Four tabs open in total.
Is this a weird problem because of doing an upgrade install or has it something that has occurred in the later builds ?
