    This may not help but certainly worth a try, I've moved to Firefox, tried Edge for maybe a year, it just continued to be not ready for prime time. AFAIK you still can't set a new tab to open as the active window in the foreground. MS has made browsers for years and Edge seems amateurish and clumsy, they made this one for touch devices.

    FF is most like IE which was my preferred browser. Anyway, a link to thread is below and a quote of the post within that thread with the workaround.

    Yahoo no longer supports IE 11 Solved - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    Resurrected this thread because I've found a workaround/fix for this problem, as it turns out it is a Microsoft problem. Happened to see a topic on a Yahoo Forum titled "Yahoo Mail switches to Basic view after installing Windows 10 Anniversary Update" I've posted a screen shot of the post below. I did what was suggested and it worked immediately on both computers that had this problem. Tools > Compatibility View settings uncheck "Use Microsoft compatibility lists"

    Now the problem is actually resolved thanks to Arcazeon on the Yahoo Forum

    Hi CmmTch

    Tools > Compatibility View settings uncheck "Use Microsoft compatibility lists"

    My "Microsoft compatibility lists" is already unchecked, but I'm still getting the message

    When I open yahoo mail, I'm always "logged in"

    Take a guess said:

    The fix @CmmTch gave is almost, but not quite correct.

    What you actually have to do is add Yahoo.com to the list of sites using Compatibility view. You can leave 'Use Microsoft compatibility lists' ticked or un-tick it, make no difference either way.


    Scrub all of the above. I can no longer find any way to generate the popup warnings in IE11 that I got before.

    Looks like Yahoo have changed something at their end. I would guess that Yahoo was incorrectly identifying all versions of IE as incompatible, but have now decided IE11 is OK to use.

    I'm also logged in all the time @Take a guess. Well, at least for a couple weeks until I get a pop up making me log in again

    The solution from the Yahoo forum worked for the problem I was having at the time. After unchecking the compatibility settings my Yahoo mail started working immediately, and the problem did not reoccur. For that particular problem at that time it was the fix (work around)

    Seems Yahoo does things without any notice, there's problem(s) for a hour, a day, sometimes a bit longer, then they clear mysteriously. In the incompatibility issue it was more MS and IE rather than Yahoo, but neither one will admit they had a problem. I'm sure they're not the only ones, just the one's I'm most familiar with.

    Hi folks
    If you have standard email type servers why not use Thunderbird - personally I hate webmail / email with browsers -- using a proper email client like outlook (part of office suite) or thunderbird works much better IMO.

    Cheers
