Windows 10: Edge Home button... Solved

    Edge Home button...

    Strike 2 here.... Still have no Home button. And I've turned on the add Home button in advanced settings. I even followed a link I saw on this web site to add it to the registry.... still no home button. Do I have a faulty Edge here?

    Is it grayed out or simply not there after you have enabled and entered an address? Some users had success by changing resolution.

    No I had already looked and changed the resolution like a few of those other folks did in the link u sent. Hopefully Microsoft will get their act together soon and get these things fixed. But thanks!

    My Home icon will appear if I toggle it off/on...maybe 1 out of every 5 attempts. But, it will always disappear when Edge is re-opened for another session later in the day. What's really weird is that when I toggle the Home icon on-off / off-on, the space where the Home icon/button should be expands and contracts horizontally, as if the Home button is there/not there, but it's invisible, 4 out of 5 times. Very strange behavior.

    This is startling. I've since found that the HOME button/icon is not missing. It's there, but invisible to the naked eye! I can hover my mouse arrow over that spot, and the little "Home" word will appear. I can click on that empty spot and the browser whisks me to my Home page.

    Conversely, if I turn off the Home icon, the right arrow slides over to that spot and disappears. And just like with the invisible Home icon, I can click on that empty spot and go forward one web page.

    This "stealthed spot" on my browser is activated in both Dark and Light themes. I've reported it to M.S., but have no idea what could be the culprit, other than defective source code. Hopefully the brains as Microsoft will figure out that reports of missing Home or Right Arrow buttons are caused by this defect and are not being imagined.

    After this latest Windows-10 "Threshold" update, my Edge "Home" icon/button disappeared again. I played around with the Display settings and found out that if you go over +115% display scaling, the home button can't be seen, or clicked on. Drop to +115% (or less) and there's your home button right next to Edge's "refresh" icon/button. It used to work up to +120%. Very strange behavior, because nothing else seems to be missing from Edge, except the usual holes in its functionality. (i.e. Lack features with the Back Button, PDF view, Printing, etc..)
