    When you tried to close the old Edge window when you had multiple tabs open (and the same with IE11) you got a prompt asking to "close all tabs?". This seems to have gone with the new Edge and it exits immediately.

    Also my taskbar icons were converted to a small box with a single letter, so had to delete them and re-pin them all.
    Could it be that you'd set the old Edge browser to automatically close all tabs, and the new one is inheriting the settings?

    And one of the Taskbar Settings is "Combine taskbar buttons"

    Could it be that your taskbar is full and it's therefore combining them?

    I was poking around in edge://flags and found something interesting. There's a flag called "Timer Interrupt Experiment" that says it is supposed to limit power consumption by lowering timer frequencies when the PC is on battery. I believe this is essentially how the battery saver feature in Opera works. I'm about to try it out on my laptop and see what battery consumption is like. It may be beneficial to try out if you're on a mobile device.

    Edge://flags isn't available in Android version if that's what you mean to say in the last line.

    Not possible anymore to change from IE11 to "show in Edge " , when on a IE11-site ( button right above in the corner in IE11 ; "switch to Edge" ) Still possible in the 44.18362-version .....
    Also the way the favorites are shown and accesible in the new Edge , made me decide to wait , untill some bugs , etc. are fixed ! ( its much better to have some more patience , then being too fast !)
    They ( MS) has a very long time of experience with IE11 , while this Edge is just a "newcomer " with ( ofcourse ) lots of bugs in it...........

    Has anyone received it via WU within the last 12 hours?

    I'm waiting until they work out the bugs and push it via WU.

    I do have it running in a VM - what's so great about it?
    Doesn't seem that much faster, is it?

    I think it is amazing; Reliability Monitor now sits at 10, while it was a mess before with the old Edge.

    I just noticed that changing the default search engine does not change the search engine that is embedded on a new tab page.

    I would use Bing if I could disable "Trending Now" without also disabling search suggestions. I don't want to be constantly reminded of the garbage that is trending on the Internet.

    Looks like these may have something to do with it.

    Disabled these, and it's been a few hours now, yeah, I'm going to say that this was the culprit, thanks!
