So many Apps/Browser Apps are terrible for integrative desktop purposes, such as Edge, UC Browser and others; they're great for phones and the like, (actually Edge isn't very good on phones either!), but terrible on a desktop.
They need to behave like a client on the desktop, but then, if they behave like a client, they're not an app anymore!
Well that is true, I don't use Edge for anything like that. My main use is in moderation duties on another large site where I find the super quick and unflappable operation of Edge a real bonus. It has never crashed out, never frozen, never 'not responded', its never blinked even when working hard switching between multiple windows and tasks together with opening pdf's. To have pdf's open in the blink of an eye, whether stored locally or online is terrific.
The two things I wish it had,
1/ an ability to export what would traditionally be 'cookies' in IE. In other words a file (or files if it handles things separately) of site login preferences and passwords.
2/ I miss (really miss) having a quick right click and swipe and being able to select 'translate'. Edge needs accelerators.
Would I go back to IE or some other 3rd party offering. Well as things stand at this moment, no chance
ok, i have to ask:
when opening EDGE i have Yahoo.com as default page. Now when hitting home (you know the little house) i get pic 1.
When hitting Yahoo what you see above i get Yahoo.com
When hitting home then i Always get start....start....start and it should be Yahoo.com (pic3)
How can i change this please
go into Settings, then Advanced Settings
Top of that where you activate the Home button should be a box telling it what to do, defaults to about:start, change this to Yahoo and it should do what you want
home is not the same as start page, you have to set them both up separately, done just to confuse I think
IE11 works fine after the latest update with no crashes so far
i did not scroll to the bottom to see Advanced settings.
