    Edge closes almost immediatliy after start

    Now Edge is not a browser I intend to use full time but was asked to try Netflix in it to figure out another problem, see my Netflix thread on that one.

    Every time I go to open edge I get the blue window to come up and then everything for it closes down. Looking at task manager while this happens I see it jump from open app to background process to then fully closed, nothing listed in task manager.

    Once in a while it stays open long enough that I can see the address bar and other of its UI elements start to render before it vanishes.

    Started new thread because I could not find any that seemed to just deal with this problem since the November update.
    Sorry if I missed one that would have been better to have used.

  2. Lumina 950 on ATT

    I recently purchased my 950 from ATT. Whenever I open up Edge after it being closed completely, I notice the Address start with an ATT website then switch to Google. It opens almost like a homepage, but I can not find any setting for a default web site
    when opening Edge. If I wanted to use Google, I would have purchased an Android device. How can I get rid of Google opening up on Edge by default?

  3. I cannot close Windows Edge without going to Task Manager.

    Original title : Windows Edge.

    I cannot close Windows Edge without going to Task Manager. Click on 'X' top right corner of window and Edge does not close. Just started to happen after KB3144756 update. John

    I have .14 and the slideshow works though it does work differently then the desktop background one, though its the same files, working more like a screen saver which I can deal with. Nothing yet on why it goes to lock screen overnight or after extended period of me not using computer. It is not based on processor usage as I run Boinc in the background with 2 projects so the processor and GPU is always in use.

    Yeah, that is strange. Have you run system file checker recently just to check things out?

    No issues with SFC

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    Same as it has been, wish I could say for sure when this issue started as prior to last night the only time I opened edge was when 10 first came out just to see what it was like. If it was not for Netflix not working I would not have even tried it last night.

    Though honestly I care more about Netflix then Edge.

    Well, you could try a Refresh. You'd need the W10 10586.14 ISO to do it. You can get it through the Media Creation Tool now - I understand MS put it back up today.
    Refresh Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Honestly, it doesn't make sense that you would need to do this, since the system file checker didn't find anything, but it's worth a try. Keep in mind you will have to reinstall any applications that you put on the system. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Edge is not worth it for me to go through all the trouble of reinstalling all the software that I am running. As long as it is not an indicator of a larger problem and so far no other non desktop apps besides Netflix, which run just will not log in for me, have has issues. At least that I have tried there is only 3 or 4 that I use and most of them just live tiles is enough

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I heard there is a cumulative update coming through today to fix some of these settings issues - do you know if you got that? Just a thought. I don't think I would want to reinstall all my programs either, to be honest. And, without extension support, Edge is not my first choice either right now.

    Edge closes almost immediatliy after start

    I experience a blue screen when I open Edge to, but its just for a second or two then it goes right to the homepage and I am able to use the browser as normal, but if I close it and reopen it same thing happens again a quick blue screen then the browser opens. It just started happening recently for me the last couple days I've noticed right after an update. never a problem before. I thought it may have been another issue and so I checked for a virus or malware and my laptop came up clean, I also did an sfc check and again checked out fine. Weird thing is it also happens when I open the settings menu, quick blue screen for a second or so then normal. I read somewhere it can be gpu related im not sure, but I read latest windows 10 updates were causing issues with some amd graphics which I have.

    The blue screen I am assuming is just the apps load screen most aps have them usually with the apps logo on them, both MS made ones and 3rd party apps like Vevo stand out because its happens to be red.
