    Problem with closing a web tab/site


    I have an issue i can easily fix when using windows 7 IE but this edge is another issue but anyways here it goes.

    With windows 7 when i have an issue with a web page that a pop up locks me into that screen and I cannot close that web window I can easily open task manager and end that 1 window without closing any other open web sites i was currently on but I can't figure out how to do the same with windows 10 edge.

    With windows 10 edge i have to reboot the pc because even when ending the microsoft edge process then re openeing edge all the opened web sites are still there including the one that prevents me from doing anything as i am unable to close any of the web windows unless i reboot

    Welcome to the Ten Forums! SaltyNutz

    So you found out unfortunately that the new browser being introduced with 10 isn't upto par?! as many have already found out and prefer to either enable IE 11 easy enough or set another browser up as the default. You can find the "iexplorer.exe" file in the Program Files\Internet Explorer folder on both the 32bit and 64bit flavors of 10 as well as in the Program Files(x86)\Internet Explorer folder for the 32bit version on the 64bit Windows.

    Once you right cilck on the iexplorer file itself you can pin it to both the Start tile section as well as to the main task bar and once you open up a new window simply go into the Tools tab Internet Options and click on the Default button to set IE as the default web browser. You don't have to stick with Edge and can only import bookmarks from IE anyways!

    On 7 a small app available for problems where things lock up solid on you is called CloseAll which will close all windows web browsers as well as WE and other windows automatically with the click on the executable you can pin a short cut to on the task bar there. Close All Windows - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    That works fast then bringing up the Task Manager or hitting the Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination to end up looking at the lock screen in 7 to choose the TM or restart the system. You don't see that screen come up in 10 however for picking and choosing which option with the redesign of the Task Manager as more of a process manager seen now. They wanted to give it a more high tech type appearance.

    Thanks for the quick reply to my issue I did pin IE to start tiles and will go that route so that I can continue with windows 10 and just avoid Edge for now.

    I found you couldn't organize bookmarks until they extended well past the viewing area of the desktop and had fun trying to drag each one around to see things set up as they have been in IE as well as the default browser I use here. At the present time it still needs quite a bit of work and not suitable for the system default! But MS wanted to be sure everyone had their opportunity being a problem presently seen with it since user options for customization as well as simply seeing things organized is still missing!
