    Edge is not download any files


    This is happening on Windows 7 but fix should apply for any Windows PC. I was downloading a file that was only 4.0 KB. After 30 minute I went to close Edge and got this: It should have loaded in a matter of seconds. I thought about uninstalling Edge and then downloading the latest version and installing it. Will this fix the problem? Or is there easy fix to this issue? Thanks

    :)
