  1. The new extensions for Edge don't work


    So I've just finished updating my Windows 10 to the new Version 1601 (aka the Anniversary update) and instantly went to install AdBlock. First of all AdBlock Plus didn't install correctly so it always prompted me to reinstall. I eventually gave up and installed regular AdBlock successfully. The problem with it is that it doesn't appear in the new Extensions list. I know that there probably isn't a fix out just yet but I wanted to ask if anyone else is experiencing this problem *Smile

  2. Password Manager in edge not working

    Dear Microsoft! I was wondering about password manager in edge. I have switch turned on to enabled but it does not seem to be working. It does not pop up to offer to save passwords. Any ideas?

    Or Are you working on extensions to work with edge as I prefer to use RoboForm. They say at present you don't allow extensions in edge. I need some sort of password manager that works for me to try to use edge.

    Right now I have to use IE or chrome or firefox as edge is a flop without password manager and some other extensions that are useful. Any plans for the future?

    Hi

    Yes same issues here.

    I don't really use it, but wanted to try it again. Favourites don't import or work correctly and when you do get some sorted out and start dragging them, it crashes the program. This now happens every time. It is still a work in progress - shame.

    Have you downloaded the patch on Windows Update? I think its meant to help with some extensions.

  8. The Anniversary update was released 6 hours ago in my Country because apparently they're delivering it to different regions at different times throughout the next weeks so I haven't received any extra patches yet.

    Here is one solution:

    Open Windows Power Shell and write "Get-AppxPackage *kindle* | Remove-AppxPackage"

    Instead of "kindle" just write Name of your app.

    Tada!!!! Everything Works Fine ....

    Fixed it too (I think).

    Go to Settings > System > Apps & Features > Uninstall the problem Edge Extension(s)

    Go to Store > manually search the store for the extension, then install it again. After it's installed, click the 'Launch' button and it will take you to Edge where you can set it up.

    Brilliant! Works for me. You can just go to the edge extensions in the App Store & download them again from there without searching for those you want.
