Windows 10: Can only open 1 instance of Edge browser. Solved

  1.    03 Jul 2018 #1

    Can only open 1 instance of Edge browser.


    When Iím on a website with MS Edge browser doing some financial business, why canít I open another instance of Edge for convenience on another website? Is there a workaround without having to open an instance of IE 11?

    You can. Right click the icon and click New Window.

    In addition, something I use often when I want to move a page to another display is to right click the tab and select Move to new window, then drag the new window to another display:

    Another option I use is to add a Microsoft Edge shortcut to the Quick Launch Toolbar. Each click opens a new instance of Edge.

    OldYeller,

    I agree with @garyb0125

    There is a tutorial at How to Create a Microsoft Edge Shortcut

    For example, one way to make an Edge shortcut is to drag the entry in the Start menu to your desktop and then put it anywhere convenient for you. Each time you use that shortcut [or the original one in the Start menu] it will open a new instance of Edge.

    Wheel-click the Edge Taskbar icon for a new instance...

    Thanks to all replies


    I wish to offer my sincere thanks for all the replies posted to this thread. I downloaded a file from Brink's page to create a shortcut to the taskbar. It works great!
