    As it says... I often need to highlight a section of text in a web page and then look it up using Bing.

    Is this doable ?

  2. No more "Search" on highlighted text?

    This is very disappointing. I find it hard to believe that Microsoft would inhibit search, given the investment in Bing. And the major investment Microsoft made in touch interface technology is great... except for in the internet browser??? What?

    There are now three key reasons to use Google Chrome instead of Edge:

    1. The ability to search on highlighted text

    2. The ability to use touch to navigate

    3. The availability of Adblock

    Highlight, Seach on Edge?

    I followed the reset instructions and it still does not work. Maybe the issue was not understood. I can highlight text but when I right click on the highlighted text to bring up the pop up window that allows me to search it is not there. It only allows
    me to copy?!? IN Internet Explorer the pop up window provides me with the ability to search the internet for the highlighted text among many other things it allows in the pop up window.
