    They don't want you to use Win 7, they want everyone on Win 10.....What I don't like about Edge is there are not many supported extensions.

    Windows 7 doesn't support Appcontainer

    It already has 71 extension. Granted most of them are adblockers and password managers. But for the average user those should be enough.

    Some can even look for alternatives to popular add-ons. For example instead of No-script, users can try Ublock Origin (advance mode)

    I want to like the Edge browser, and I might if it worked. On this machine, it still closes unexpectedly, freezes, and often won't let me copy or paste. I get the feeling it isn't ready for prime time. I use Google's Chrome. It works.

    What version of Windows 10 are you running? Fall creators?

    The initial versions did had some issues with copy and paste. In addition to crashing on some occasions. Most of those issues, for me at least, were fixed on the anniversary update. Making Edge a lot more stable.

    For me Edge improved greatly starting with the Creators Update (1703) and continues to do well in 1709 also. It does Netflix and Hulu HD video really well, smoother than Chrome at any rate, and overall I'd say it's pretty decent now. It probably does still need some work, so it depends on what you're using it for I guess.

    Up to 1703 (CU), Edge worked perfectly. Since the upgrade to 1709 (FCU), Edge crashes on a daily basis.

    Microsoft Edge Content Process:
    MoOsMitigation / Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_41.16299.15.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe / praid:ContentProcess
    or
    MoAppCrash / Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_41.16299.15.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe / praid:ContentProcess

    MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe:
    MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe, v11.0.16299.15, edgehtml.dl
    or
    MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe, v11.0.16299.15, win32u.dll,

    e.t.c.

    Edge is an app and need some more as only file copy. in fact win7 dont offers the needed security to run apps. same for windows 8. from my view edge is totally crap like IE - usages is decreasing in stats.

    Anyone knows where the location of Edge browser favourites are? I have searched the net and tried the below but they are wrong. I need it to do an exclusion in Toolwiz time freeze.

    folder.
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\120712-0049\DBStore

    and

    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites

    Obviously wrong since nothing gets saved.

    Hey Chuck57. The same exact conclusion on this end too.

    Im using Palemoon. It works and supports all the extensions to keep my browser safely tucked in where it belongs even against the most gummed up websites and the multiple web bugs which they are unloading loads of these days.
