  1. All browsers, except Microsoft Edge, flicker a white window and immediately crash on startup


    I had been using Google Chrome on my Windows 10 PC. After closing it, I soon reopened it, and all that happened was a flicker of a white window opening and immediately closing. I tried Opera as well, and the same thing happened, I reinstalled both, and they would crash instantly.Is this a Microsoft account problem or something? This is such an annoying problem.

    :)

    Microsoft is developing a built-in ad blocker for its Edge browser

    "One of the first browser add-ons many people install to improve their online experience is Adblock Plus or something similar. Until recently, Microsoft Edge's lack of support for add-ons put off a lot of would-be users, but reports from Build 2016 suggest that native ad blocking is on its way to the Internet Explorer successor.

    Adblock Plus is coming to Edge, but built-in ad blocking would negate the need for such an add-on. A slide shown off and snapped at a Build presentation shows that the next version of Edge, in response to user feedback, will feature ad blocking capabilities. There's no word on delivery timescale, but the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update would seem a likely candidate.

    ZDNet's Ed Bott photographed the slide which shows Microsoft's development roadmap built around feedback from testers. Right at the top of the list is reference to plans to create a plugin and extension store for Edge, but it's entry number four that's more intriguing.

    "Build ad blocking features into the browser" is listed as a Feature Request from users. But the good news is that it is not only listed as being "Deliverable 4682811", but as "Targeted for the next version".

    This will no doubt come as good news for those who have fallen in love with Edge, but it's not something that will be welcomed by the likes of Adblock Plus. It does seem that, particularly in the mobile arena, there is a move to baking ad blocking into the browser so it makes sense that Microsoft is following the trend. But it is the fact that Edge straddles Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile that makes this a particularly interesting move.

    Keep an eye out for Insider builds in the coming weeks as the feature may be just around the corner.
    "

    Forget extensions, built-in ad blocking is coming to Microsoft Edge - [UPDATE... no it's not!]

  4. All browsers, except Microsoft Edge, flicker a white window and immediately crash on startup

    windows edge opens then closes immediately

    Hi Jamie,

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    From what you have mentioned, it looks like Microsoft Edge is set as the default browser. I would suggest you to try the steps below to set Internet Explorer as the default browser and check if you are able to open the PDF file.

    1. Press Windows key + I to open settings.

    2. Click "system" and click "default apps" on the left pane.

    3. Under "browser", if Microsoft Edge is listed, click on it and choose Internet Explorer from the list.

    Also, for Microsoft Edge crash related issue, please follow the steps given below to run powershell command.

    Powershell is a scripting language for Windows and Windows Server that allows you to simplify the management of your systems.

    1. Type powershell in the search bar

    2. Right click on PowerShell and select
    run as administrator


    3. Copy and paste the following command and press enter:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    4. Once the command is completed successfully, restart the computer and check again.

    Let us know the result.
