    Three things I most desire in a browser are the ability to save Web pages (preferably as MHTs), the ability to send pages (not just links!) by e-mail, and the ability to work with LastPass. Near as I can tell, Edge misses completely on the first two and took disgracefully long for the third.

    Or could it be it has these two features? Can't tell: This is the first program I've ever used without any visible way of getting Help!
    Aside from not figuring out the bookmark new folder creation and storage in Edge outside of imported bookmark folders after all this time ,
    I just tried to right click save a web page from Edge now and it wouldn't do it but it will save an image well and copy paste works now ,it seems to load much faster lately and it reads .pdf but that new speed may just be this new PC that does everything much faster then the old one .Chrome is the default hre and firefox a strong and good alternate here that would be a good default browser as well.

    Edge is *still* frequently unstable and not reliable enough for me although it can load a page very fast when it's behaving but probably not any faster than chrome or F.F. ,The UI is simple and clean but not intuitive IMO .

    Edge plays Netflix 1080p where the others wont it's a DRM compliance thing but I get up to 4K HDR Netflix and 4K You Tube all that in my 4K TV in here anyway .

    Edge plays some videos the other browsers wont play or buffer to much before they load or play well there are videos it plays better nothing is perfect so I have all 3 of these browsers and Chrome default .

    I prefer Chrome. I have it on my iPad, Galaxy phone, MacBook Pro, 2 Win 10 Desktops, Nexus 7. The ability to sync all bookmarks, history, passwords...etc. on all computers/devices is a must. Firefox can do the same but does not have all of the extensions I need.

    Using Edge almost exclusively and have been for awhile. F.F. is my secondary and I'll use Avant or Iron browsers as the mood hits. I'd say ......... 95% Edge usage overall.

    If Edge had the toolbar at top of page the same as IE it would be easy to use being down the right hand side is a pain in the bum

    I had not noticed the toolbar Lawnmower 60 mentioned, and tried to open it and check that out. But I had already unpinned Edge from my taskbar, and now it seems to have disappeared from my system--maybe I'd hurt its feelings? Anyway, I'd like to give it another look--where should I look for it, and under what name?

    It should be under M for Microsoft Edge on the Start Menu

    Thanks. I found and opened it, but see no sign of anything menu-like on the right side.

    Also found that it won't open from the Start\Run command, and can put an icon on the taskbar, but not on the desktop.

    First modern browser that makes me miss Netscape.

    Using it, but getting tired of all the sites that stop responding and need to recover in this latest build of Edge.
    If they don't sort it in the next update, I'll move to something else

    The closest you get to a menu is the threes dashes at the right

    If you want to run it from the Run command, type in microsoft-edge: and it should run fine
