    How to Enable javascript for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 pro


    I have window 10 pro updated to the anniversary edition. I would like to use Microsoft Edge. The only problem is that the javascript is not enabled so most pages are not viewable. My system:
    Toshiba C640 Laptop with intel i5 2nd generation.

    It initially had Win7 Pro which I updated to Win 10 pro and then recently to win 10 pro with anniversary update. Before the anniversary update I had the same problem since the end of December last year (2015). I was able to enable javascript by fixing the registry. This fix got overturned after the anniversary update. Unfortunately I have forgotten the regedit fix steps. The group policy route is not relevant since the allow script option is not visible under group policy.

    Hello and welcome,

    Java, ActiveX, Silverlight, Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) and other plugins are not supported in Microsoft Edge. Most modern browsers are moving away from plugins and toward standard HTML5 controls and technologies.

    The query was for enabling scripts (or javascripts). Not Java and other plugins.

    I read , I think on SuperUser? that even with the registry change it is no longer possible in Edge you need to use FF or IE11
