    Problem (+solution) with Edge dismissing screens by mouse scrolling

    I have reported this issue on feedback hub.

    When I use Edge and scroll up and down, it often dismisses current screen effectively swipes left or right rather than scrolling up or down. This makes Edge more or less unusable on my PC which is a shame as I prefer it in general over Chrome etc.

    I found the solution in this article after some dogged searching.

    So far, the issue has gone away (hopefully for good), and I can use Edge as my main browser.
