    Earlier this morning I was running into an issue of internet windows (Not Responding), and it seemed to mainly happen when I had multiple windows open. I then switched to only having one window open, and it seemed to work fine for a while. Then that window froze on me. I went through task manager to shut it down. Now when I open Edge it won't allow me to type anything in the search box. Any suggestions? This has never happened to me before.

    Thanks! It ended up that there was an update I needed to do. Took like an hour to update, though! Ha. But it was fine after that.

    I have given up on Edge and goneback to Firefox. Too many times it would not load a site, once baldly stating that fact and that was it!.

    I'm still using Edge as my primary web browser since it works fine for me, however I also have SeaMonkey for writing web pages with in WYSIWYG format. Edge is a new browser with a less than stable engine, it will take time to mature.

    At least it isn't IE 6 :D

    I am not sure if this is the place for this however,
    My 'E' seems to have lost the opening page with the feeds coming through
    I can still use the Favorites and put in a search in the search box
    but the opening page with the feeds are gone
    Where should I start looking to fix this
    Maybe download 'e' again?

    Well Edge is designed to work on new technology websites and IE for legacy websites. That's why there is an option in Edge to open the page in IE from the Edge menu.

    It also could be your profile is corrupt. That happens in All MS OS's.
