    Microsoft Edge not Working


    Hello,

    I updated my windows 7 desktop to Windows 10. I made Google chrome my Default browser. Both Google chrome and Firefox are working perfectly. I tried to open Microsoft Edge but get errors such as: " Can't reach this page & make sure I have the right web address." . I' typing known web addresses i.e. Yahoo, iMore | The #1 site for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and all things Apple!. Can any tell me what I'm doing wrong? I want to use EDGE sometime WITHOUT making it my DEFAULT browser.

    Any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

    When are in the "Where to Next?" page, you cannot use periods unless .com .gov .org, etc. For example: I want to search the Chevrolet 6.5 Turbo Diesel in a 1984 Chevy truck --> I cannot do what I just said because of the period between 6 and 5. Press the "Home" button and then you can use periods on the homepage which is MSN. You can change it to Google by simply:

    1. Going to the triple dot in the top right corner
    2. "Settings"
    3. "Advanced Settings" in "Settings"
    4. Turn on "Show the Home Button" if you already haven't then
    5. Highlight what it says in the box under and change to Google and you should be able to go from there.

    Now, when you go on Edge, always press the Home button, then you can be on your way. Even in a new tab.

    Hope this helps your issue, if not please tell us what else is happening, or tell us if it worked or found a solution yourself.

    Thanks!

    Edit: You know, I just thought of another thing. I had this problem before too, press "Search for what you want" and that should work as well. I had that problem when it said that Google had the wrong address when clearly I didn't.

    I think I need to go back and make Microsoft EDGE my DEFAULT browser to install it and THEN change it to google chrome. Let me know if this is or is not correct.

    You do NOT have to do that That is normal on ALL machines to have the "where to next?" mine does the same. You will have to press the Home button every time you open a new tab or window.

    Since you installed Windows 10, was there a time when Edge was working ?
    If yes, do you remember when was that ?
    If yes again, please do a system restore. Pick a date when Edge was working as your restore point.

    If system restore does not help, do a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.


    Please post back the result.

    I ran SFC/Scannow . Windows found no integrity violation. I did not think it would.
