    Unintended Edge Browser F12 issue


    Greetings!

    As of recently I'm being plagued by a rather odd issue with my main PC where upon opening the Edge Browser and typing away to enter a URL the key presses invoke the F12 Developer Console (DC) of it.

    From the looks of it only one letter of the intended URL manages to actually get written before the DC gets invoked.

    It also appears for this to be only an issue during the first use of the Edge Browser after the PC has been pulled out of sleep.

    Any ideas?

    :)

  3. Download issue with Edge browser

    Hi,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.

    I understand that you are not able to download any files through EDGE browser.

    Follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you clear the Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    • Click on the More actions (…) icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    • Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    • Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:


    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.

    • Right click on Microsoft EDGE.

    • Go to details click on microsoftedgeCP.exe and click
      end task.
    You have to repeat it few times it worked for me hope it will help you to reset the Microsoft edge browser.

    The download option will be available on the EDGE browser at the top right corner. Click on Hub (three horizontal symbol) and click on Downloads, there you will be able to click on Downloads folder and check where the download
    files are getting saved.



    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
