    Windows 10 browsers are not connecting to internet but any else is...


    So Im using my mobile data on my pc with usb modem ofc and so now randomly (couldv been after update) chrome or any other browser doesnt take internet connection, youtube page worked in chrome buy anything else no. Other apps like steam works well with net and even games do so it shouldnt be internet problem. Whenever I launched a new tab (witch/twitter/fb or whatever page) then it said err_connection_closed or later with on err_timed_out, looked up for some help on yt, did the cmd stuff with ip reset and flush and other things there were said, cleared out chromes data but still nothing, uninstalled chrome then tried to install it back from Edge or explorer but ofcourse nothing worked, Edge said page is not safe or something.. Tried safe mode but what else to do there if no connection and theres no option to make safe mode with connection... also same with me sharing net to pc (like wifi).. need help, soo frustrated already.

    :)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    After upgrading to Windows 10, Edge is the only app that can connect to the internet

    Hi ,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    With the issue description it seems like Edge is unable to connect to network.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    Set Internet Explorer as default browser

    I suggest you to set Internet Explorer as default web browser and restart the computer and see if it helps.

    Disable Proxy

    Sometimes using proxy to connect to the internet may cause issues while connecting to the network.

    Follow the steps below to disable proxy:

    • Press “Windows Key” + “R”.
    • Type “inetcpl.cpl”.
    • Go to Connection.
    • Click on LAN Settings.
    • Check the box which says Automatically detect settings.
    • Uncheck the box under Proxy server.

    Run Internet Connection Troubleshooter

    Though you are able to use internet, there could be some problems or some settings which could have stopped Windows services to connect to the internet.

    I suggest you to run the Internet connection troubleshooter to fix such issues, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R
    • Type Control
    • Click on Troubleshooting
    • Click on Connect to the internet
    • Click on Next and follow the On-screen instructions

    Hope this helps, get back to us if you need further assistance.

      from the context menu.
    • Type the following command and press Enter after each entries:
      • ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /registerdns
      • ipconfig /release
      • ipconfig /renew
    • Close the windows and check if the changes are effective.


    If the above steps does not resolve the issue, perform
    System restore by following steps mentioned in the above post and check if it helps.
