    Loopback/localhost acces in apps

    This is aimed at Win 8, but should be the same for 10

    As some of us have found out, modern apps such as Edge are not allowed to send network traffic to the local host, so things like media servers and routers do not work

    I have just been trying out some media server store apps (to play media) which have the same issue and while reading up on it came across this


    it shows all your apps and allows you to select which ones have access to localhost by using a tickbox

    I have tried it on 8 and it works fine, but dont's have a working 10 to test on

    Thought it might be an interest to those who face these type of issues (even if to just read more about it)

    Thanks, didn't see that when I posted

    I see the option is now built into Edge to allow this

    That's good to know. I'm starting to like Edge more and more. Thanks for sharing

    That was one of the main things stopping me using edge, I don't have too many complaints about it now
