  1. Cannot search the page in edge


    Hi

    In all iterations of IE that I have used Ctrl/F opened a search dialogue that searched
    on the current page, I use this a lot.

    I cannot change to Edge until it has the same function.

    Cheers

    Daniel

    Microsoft Edge Does not Search Properly with Flash Drives

    Edge has a major flaw, so I stopped using it. It will not fully search within a flash drive. Magazines within a flash drive can be searched by keywords and brought up to individual pages on Chrome, Explorer and Firefox. Microsoft Edge cannot perform deep
    search (going to a page within), so the publishers are recommending against using Edge. It is worthless to have a flash drive that you can't search for individual pages.

    Hmm, Can't find this page ---using windows 10 and continually receive this message on laptop

    EDGE recently started giving the "Hmmm cannot find page, etc" with many searches. If I immediately close EDGE and use IE there is no such problem and the target is found with no problem, ever. It appears to be a new problem with EDGE.

  4. Cannot search the page in edge

    What website does it not allow you to search using the built in Ctrl+f function? It works fine, I am currently running windows 10 pro 64 bit. I wonder if other users besides yourself are also having this issue and maybe I am just the odd one out.

  6. I have no idea what is going on, this morning I couldn't get a search box up with Ctrl/F, this afternoon I couldn't either, now I can.

    In any case it is working now, It's like the "settings" icon in the start menu it did not even show up then it did but did not work.

    It's a bit weird but W10 is great. Edge is probably great too, I'll keep using it.

    Cheers

    Hi Daniel,

    I'm experiencing the same issue with Ctl-F not initially working, then suddenly working again. Its one of a several issues with Edge where functionality such as the scroll-bars, wheel mouse etc. initially don't work.

    I haven't been able to tell what's fixing it...whether its time or alt-tabbing away or randomly (angrily) clicking on stuff until it works. I suspect its probably due to something from the web page loading or initialising slowly.

    but you aren't alone

    Bill
