    Maybe a "secret" message was sent back to Miscrosoft about your actions and they have punished you! Ironically I now find Chrome to run slower under WIn 10 also!
    I wouldn't doubt that Microsoft is punishing a lot of users who don't keep all of Windows10 in it's default installation mode. But that's too bad.

    Tonight, I was attempting to see a live stream of the Lunar Eclipse. Edge "couldn't find the necessary resources" according to the error message showing on the stream window/player. Firefox had no problems connecting and streaming from Nasa.gov..

    As is being said on message boards around the world, Windows10/Edge was released before it should have been.

    I can see no means by which to even judge the speed of the browser itself without being able to block ads. It's ridiculous how intolerable the internet is without that ability

    My Edge is fast no problems at all so must be a hitch with some apps I am not using, loaded my msn web page fast and mail also this forum.
    I don't use Crome at all

    I experienced a sudden and significant slow-down in Edge performance but found that the following procedure fixed the problem:

    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...e-46ed60029385

    1.Open Internet Explorer (yes, Explorer, not Edge)
    2.Click on the Gear icon, and select Internet Options
    3.On the General Tab > Browsing History, click on Settings
    4.On the Temporary Internet Files tab, click on Move folder...
    5.Choose a new location for the "Temporary Internet Files" folder (I just put it in my C:\Users\MyName\ directory) and clicked OK.
    6.Then I set the Disk space to use to the maximum, 1024MB and clicked OK.
    7.Click OK on the Internet Options dialog box and then close Internet Explorer
    8.Open Microsoft Edge and you should have solved the problem.

    The author of the above solution (jmkoffler) went on to say:
    "I believe the problem happened for me after using the advice given on one of these forum posts to go to the old Control Panel > Windows Store Apps and running the troubleshooter. It moved or deleted some cache which I believe was the "Temporary Internet Files" directory and then afterwards there was no allotted cache space for Edge to work properly. This also fixed a problem that I was having with Word 2013 not being able to create a temporary file."

    In my case (ChrisNH) I created and selected a new folder in my <user name> folder, and set the new cache size to 250 MB, not the max 1024 MB proposed by the procedure's author, but it worked great for me none the less. I can't confirm that Troubleshooter is the source of the problem. However, I don't plan to use Troubleshooter in the near future, or if I do I'm going to check to make sure the folder I set up for temporary internet files is still in use.

    Has anyone else noticed Microsoft Edge being extremely slow in opening applications or loading web pages or is it just me? Sometimes it takes ten to thirty seconds to open webpages with the dreaded spinning circle. It would be a while before I could clean install due to lack of funds but I wonder if it's my 25/25 internet or just edge being the culprit?
    Just got a new computer with Windows 10 and McAfee was installed. Edge was slow until I turned off McAfee Real Time Scanning, now Edge is lightening fast. I didn't want McAfee, it always conflicts with something, and I feel Win10 has enough security built in.

    After several Microsoft updates over the Fall and Winter, Edge's internet navigation is finally faster than Internet Explorer. Almost as fast as Firefox.

    But, EDGE still slows down quite a bit on websites with those annoying auto-play videos. I sometimes even have to "force close" Edge, because the browser freezes when the video(s) are playing.

    I have the Edge pop-up blocker switched to "On", but it just seems to be a pacifier switch. No effect. Perhaps website auto-play videos aren't considered "pop-ups"? How can I stop these offending CPU hogs from running? There are Add-ons that prevent video auto-play in Firefox, but I can't find anything online for Edge.

    I have been using edge since I installed windows 10, no complaints about edge yet from me. My opinion is that edge is much better than any version of internet explorer. I have not seen the not responding message or internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close crap like I used to get on internet explorer constantly.

    I installed Win 10 and Edge was blazing fast for few weeks. Later I installed hyper-v and some vpn software. and then I changed something in my network adapter settings (I unchecked some protocols) and after that Edge is real slow in opening pages. And I am talking a minute or so.. not usable anymore. while IE on the same machine works as before.

    EDIT: moving cache, clearing cache, increasing size of the cache didn't help.

    A very simple solution - abandon Windows.

    - yikes, that's a bit severe..

    - Edge has improved dramatically since first release..
    - I hardly use IE11 at all, nowadays..

    PS - it took you 8 months to reply - now that really IS slow..
