    Nope. It's the way it behaves out of the box!

    Unbelievable that Microsoft would devote time to composing "begging" letters, instead of focusing on making Edge better. This is 2015. Build a better mousetrap Microsoft, and everyone will know about it in a matter of hours, thanks to communications technology.

    Every day I run into something I need to do online that can't be done with Edge. Today, it was the inability to print a text excerpt from a web page. Had to use Firefox, using the "Print Highlighted Text" option. Every browser can do this, BUT Edge. The list of Edge "cant's" is longer than the list of "can's", and growing larger every day.
    Here I say no to both Chrome and Edge as well as substitute the 64bit flavor variant of Firefox being Waterfox even for IE most of the time being the default browser. Yet the MS plans at dumping IE will fail since many sites as well as programs are geared to automatically open IE windows to arrive at their home sites!

    Due to all that MS had to leave IE intact only without a shortcut being found on the Start tile area, Task bar, or a folder in the AllApps there but yet still found in the Program Files and Program Files)x86) folders! You simply click to pin the "iexplorer.exe" file for either or both the 32bit and/or 64bit flavors of IE 11 if you are not using any other alternate.

    As for Edge that's hardly even out of the Alpha, Beta stages and far from an actual full featured browser to replace IE with! Here I couldn't barely arrange the bookmarks you could only import by way of IE which you first have to locate and pin before you can use that even! Smart thinking! MS put out a browser no one can even use and hide IE away?! Brilliant for dufus move! Cortana is the only thing there at moment that is even worth the look while many will be looking for some other 3rd party app for file searches on the local drives like the Everything app.

    IE 11 still came preinstalled on 10 as it did on 8.1! You just have to pin a new shortcut for it to see it back again! As I was saying before MS is forced to keep IE onboard since too many softwares open IE windows automatically to their sites especially when first setting up a new program or when going to remove one if not for some update. With any trial wares that will automatically bring you to the purchase page with a new IE window.

    Until Edge can do what Firefox does it stays in its wrapper. Like others support for addons and extensions is a must.

    All the time I was on Windows 7 I had IE removed. I have no use for it. Edge may be better when extensions are included.

    Well, judging by the way that Chrome is unresponsive tonight, I'd say Microsoft is at work....LOL.

    Seriously, Chrome won't load tonight but Edge does just fine. Looks like I'm using Edge tonight.

    The guide there is for showing how to enable or disable IE in 10 not actually for installation or complete removal. Internet Explorer - Install or Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums[1]=Networking%20Internet

    I simply went directly to the IE program to create the new shortcut from the main exe file itself in order to see IE push Edge aside. When looking Edge over besides finding the present version actually too limited for more then a fast browse I was taking notes on how the new side bar will actually allow for more options then you would see in the present form of IE. Edge can be expanded on but the question of course will be "When"?

    Chrome is one in it's finished form that still appeared like a beta browser when tried briefly and dumped fast here. Previously I would have even preferred Opera over Chrome or even FF while the 64bit Waterfox generally took over for IE when you couldn't keep multiple browser windows open and keep IE 9, 10, and 11 all from crashing while I haven't given 11 anywhere near the same amount of time as 9 and 10 saw between 7 beta and SP1 time back in 2010 when I had to select another browser to work with.

    That was also a time when I actually tried out Netscape's Navigator 9 the last of that line along with whatever browsers were still available to download while several no longer being developed but discontinued entirely. IE only saw progress following IE 7 replacing the IE 6 mess and is now actually a bit outdated when considering the OSs are starting to pass where the browsers tend to leave off.
