  1. Microsoft Edge not finishing downloads


    I noticed that Edge isn't completing my downloads. It's completing them, but it still shows as downloading even after an hour. They get downloaded, but only temporarily, as when I shut my computer off they disappear. Any help?

    :)

  2. 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.

    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:

    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
