    MS Edge. URL partically in white lettering


    Not sure if this is just me, but after a recent (the last couple of weeks), I noticed that when I look at the URL bar in Edge, a portion is listed in white color lettering & the remaining is in grey colored lettering. For example, "tenforums.com" is in white colored lettering & anything after that including the "/" is in grey colored lettering

    Has anybody else seen this & is there a way to switch this back to the way it was?

    Thanks

    The white is merely the shortened URL, the protocol is hidden unless you click in the address field, the rest is the path, parameters etc.
    I don't know why it's like that.

    This is as it should be, default way for Edge to show URL: domain is highlighted:

    I don't think you can change it.
