    The "About:*******" Pages in MS Edge.


    Hi,

    Not sure if I describing what I am looking for correctly. I was told yesterday by a large financial institution, that I need to make changes to the settting listed on the "about:flags" page, accessed by opening a new tab, and typing in "about:flags".

    A series of options are then listed which if you make any changes, requires the Edge browser to restart.

    Is there a reference anyone has about these settings and any other "about: *****" settings there may be on MS Edge please?

    Hi the only time I see about
    Is when I go to settings after an update to find out what version the App has been updated to
    But not come up against it otherwise

    The ones in Edge are for Developers(web site devs) and Experimental features.
    They are also different depending on which build you are on(current, insider fast or slow....etc.)
    A large financial institution has now idea about browsers.
    What do you exactly need activated?

    You can have a gander at the following article for more info on Windows 10 about:flags:

    For reference on others though, the following Wikipedia gives a good breakdown of the 'about URI scheme' for all browsers:

    That is the point. I did not make any changes to the settings because I was convinced the problem lay with the sw they were using and not with the browser. The battle continues, hence why I thought maybe it would be a good idea to try and understand where they are coming from.
