    Minimize Edge, and it disappears?

    Hey guys/gals,

    I'm on Windows 10 Pro Build 14316.rs1_release, 160402-2217. Every time I minimize the Edge Browser, it minimizes fine, but then I go to click on the edge logo on my taskbar, and it pulls up a new window, I can't get back to the window I had open before. I've tried deleting and re-adding the shortcut to my taskbar, I've restarted, etc. Any thoughts? Anyone else having this issue? It's only with Microsoft apps(I just checked like the calculator, calendar, alarm clock, etc. All of them, if you minimize them, they just disappear. Can't find them again.

    You are right.
    Same happens to my 14316. Both regarding Edge and Apps.

    At least it's not only me. It frustrates me, because I minimize a lot of windows during the day, keep things open that I don't necessarily need right away or all the time. I mean I use Firefox as my main browser, but extras I just throw into edge, might just have to use a 2nd Firefox window for now and wait to see if it gets fixed or where my windows are going at least!

    I am going back to earlier build.
    I'll set it to Slow ring and wait for a new build.
