    Edge web address bar missing, StartPageAddressBarPinned & New dont fix


    Hello,

    Windows 10 Home, 10.0.10586, Edge 25.10586.0.0

    I want a permanent address bar on Edge - it drives me crackers when I have to click at the top to get it.

    I did a clean install a year ago and did this:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wek yb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\ServiceUI]
    "StartPageAddressBarPinned"=dword:00000001
    "NewTabPageAddressBarPinned"=dword:00000001

    It worked a treat and I didn't have 'Where to next?' but a nice address bar.
    Yesterday I did a clean install and tried that trick, but it didn't work. I even downloaded two different scripts from the internet to do it, rebooted, tried the other, rebooted, did it manually 5 times (with reboots) but still no address bar.

    I don't want to have to reinstall windows again in the hope it will work, only to find it still doesn't work.

    Please help as I really have tried as much as I can.


    Thanks, Ash

    :)

    Hi Ken,

    Many thanks for that. I now have a version of Edge that has the address bar.

    Edge: 81.0.416.64

    For other users:

    I did think it had not fixed the problem, I ran Edge from the start bar and got the same problems. However, when I ran the shortcut from the desktop it showed the new Edge with the address bar.

    Looks like I now have two versions of Edge (argh!) which I now need to uninstall the old version. Maybe you should try uninstalling Edge and, using internet explorer, get the latest version of Edge.

    Hi Ash. Welcome to the TenForums @abtmuppet.

    Are you using the new Edge, from your version number it appears to be the older one.

    New Chromium based Microsoft Edge now generally available

    This is not a beta product anymore so safe to use.
