Windows 10: How do I get to The Edge Properties?

    How do I get to The Edge Properties?


    I used to use Windows 7 and I could just right click on my internet explorer (or any browser for that matter) and then I could select properties. If I do that in Windows 10 all I see is "unpin from Taskbar". How can I get to the properties?

    Thanks,

    If you're speaking of accessing Edge Properties, the only thing you have access to in Edge is Options in the menu, top right.
    Edge doesn't have "Properties" in the classic sense of the word as it's a Universal App.

    Hmm, I need to change the 'target'. A virus hijacked the browsers and changed the target to go to a search engine instead of my homepage. I changed the target in Chrome, but the edge has me baffled...

    I looked through the tutorial... can I not get to here:



    Do I have to do a registry edit for this? Seems crazy to me...

    What you ask about Microsoft Edge and what you display is Internet Explorer Property! They are two different animals!

    The tutorial is on Edge!

    I know... I'm showing you where I want to get to in the edge for clarification.

    Edwin commented in post #2! That is why you need the Reg Edit!

    The Target for Edge is: shell:appsfolder-MicrosoftEdge
    it can't be edited, it's an app that opens in it's own runtime environment much like an Android app,
    it's not 'targetable' as in the Win32 platform.

    Interesting. Thank you for the answer! However, not entirely sure how a browser hijacked this and changed the page. I reset the edge but no luck.

    In the past the virus would modify the target so it would redirect you, since it can't do that, not sure how to change it to my actual home page.
