    Search Box Vanished In Edge


    Hi, Been using Edge browser since it first became available, with little or no problems......but this is doing my head in....the search box has disappeared from the new tab page, I am running two laptops, both with exactly the same settings....one still shows the search box, the other does not, anyone know how this is possible and how to get it back ?......Del.

    Ghost in the machine? :)

    Have you installed any new software on the one machine? Have you tried a resetting Edge? Ran any malware/spyware tests? A little more information will help us help you.

    Seems the last cumulative updates cripple the search box on Edge... weid stuff... I have the same exact problem, but only if you use the "blank page" on new tabs, if you enable news feeds and all the uselss stuff, the serch box is back.

    Man... this are really funny bugs...

    I think I got it back... check your internet explorer settings (yeah, IE), and in the tabs settings, set the page to "Tabs Page" Instead of the news feeds, I dunno if that could do the trick for you...
