    Well I stated earlier......



    Take a look at Edge. Do some web surfing with it. But don't expect much of anything else out of it for the present time. It's simply not ready to be a full time replacement for any browser including IE at this time. But do you expect with a freebie you didn't have to pay for until the end of next July when I suspect the finished version of Edge will be presented with the paid for 10!

    Presently Edge along with 10 is being provided as a means of getting a general feeling of how 10 will be received as well as the feedback indicating where people seem to end up having problems as well as the likes and dislikes about the new version. After 8 and 8.1 went astray from the huge success 7 saw MS needs to see 10 make into another winner to continue on from where 7 left off!
    But that doesn't answer the question in the OP. Saying don't use it is of no help really.

    That is it. It works for @fracking4oil (no re-naming of downloads, no need to "retry", same version of Edge) but not for me.

    I'm not asking "what is the best browser" - just what is happening here (and if it is only me)...

    I tried to recreate the error but I didn't have a bit of luck. If I can I'll post some suggestion.. I hope someone can help you out with an answer to your issue. One thing to consider is doing a clean install of your current build.. yes.. that's a PITA.. but heck.. it might fix the issue..

    As a test

    What happens if you change the Downloads folder location to somewhere on C drive instead of D do you get the same problem

    If this works then change back to D for the location and see if it makes any difference

    Same. I relocated Downloads from D:\Users\Hali\Downloads to C:\TEMP and downloaded Notepad++ from here

    After "retry" I got this downloaded (note the _exe)... @fracking4oil has also moved his/her Downloads folder and it works OK for them so I don't think it is that.

    Note the download 15 minutes later is from the same place but using IE not Edge... It isn't renamed.

    Do you get the same issue if you download in IE? (not sure if they share some of the settings)

    As far as I can gather this is related to Protected Mode in IE, but because IE has more options you can tell it once to override when doing the first download and it remembers it, Edge has no options for downloading

    So if you download once via IE, then it might work in the future for Edge

    Actually it does in simple terms! Since it isn't the "finished product" and still in a beta form just about anything goes! That makes it unreliable for an every day default browser at this time. MS simply hid IE however to force everybody to "Hey you have to try Edge out since you have no other option! See Edge replaced IE!" without IE still being seen but need to be found all over again.

    What gets you however and where there was an obvious mistake is that you can only import Favorites, bookmarks from IE yet IE is nowhere to be found except by the manual browse to the program folder itself in order to see it pinned! Somebody made a goof! Better have all of your Favorites, booksmarks backed up from your 7 or 8, 8.1 install first before using Edge!

    I have (on occasion) had protected mode turned on in IE (I did think of that also funnily enough)

    However at the moment it is off (it doesn't work well with EMET - I have to turn off ESF and ASR mitigation or IE just crashes). I've not turned on Protected mode since my last clean install.

    I downloaded the same thing OK through IE (see screenshot above). Edge still has the same issue.

    I think you are probably right though. Some setting in IE is messing with Edge. I'll reset it and see if that helps.

    I'm not sure I understand your point. Does this specific case work for you or not? (Not bookmarks or favorites or anything else - I'm only asking about "retry" and renaming of downloads in Edge browser, not whether it is generally good.).

    My only other possible thought is remove IE from the programs and features menu, then restart, then add IE back again

    See if it resets any settings that might be causing it
