Windows 10: Microsoft Edge

    Microsoft Edge


    Whenever I open up Microsoft Edge on my Desktop PC, it opens with the top sites that have been visited as well as my MSN homepage below. Is it supposed to do that? When I first upgraded to Windows 10, it didn't do this...all it would show was my MSN homepage. Now, if I made a new tab, it would show the recently visited sites or top sites.

    Below is the screenshot.

    Since I use IE11 as default and I don't open Edge unless I need to answer question about Edge, my suggestion below can be way off..........

    Open Edge > click the 3 dots at top right > Settings > check/select the settings from the screenshot..............
    See if that works for you. I use mine as example ONLY.

    Go to the 3 dots right hand top corner
    Click on it and go to Settings
    Make sure Start page has a dot in it
    Click Save and that should take you to Your MSN page
    Without the other tabs opening
