    Hello, while I am online and if I minimize the window, Edge closes. This seems to be happening after the most recent update to Windows Defender. Can someone help? Thank you

    Programs closing when clicking on Minimize

    When I click minimize no error appears it just closes like when I press the X button.

    I did research and nothing came up about it so no I have not done any troubleshooting steps.

    I can't minimize windows edge browser in Windows 10

    Hi and thanks for responding. I hope these details and attached images help:

    • As you can see in the attached, Edge has now minimize or restore down option.
    • Right clicking also shows minimize and restore but they are grayed out.
    • I did reboot as another responder suggested but there was no change.
    • The issue seems to only apply to "apps." Other full applications like the Office suite have all of the normal options to minimize, etc. The ones that seem built in to Windows 10 are the ones that I can only close - Photos, Calculator, Camera, etc.

    Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
