Microsoft Edge Developer

Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

A note from our lawyers: Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the Terms of Service for more information.

  2. Open Local File with anchor

    We need to open a local html file with the default handler (in this case, it's edge).

    Unfortunatelly, edge is cutting all the query parameters and the anchor away.

    The following commands work for all the other browsers (including IE, Chrome and Firefox)

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello
    --> Resulting to file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello

    The edge interprets the command the following way:

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\LaunchWinApp.exe" "file:///C:/temp/test.html?echo=hello"
    --> Resulting to file:///C:/Temp/test.html

    We need a workaround or a fix for this problem, otherwise we can't use the edge browser.

  3. File Explorer File Count field does not count anything

    The Windows 10 "File Explorer" column "File Count" exists today, but when added to a folder view, it does not reuturn the count of any sub folders. A few block posts suggest that this was a planned feature that was never fully implemented. Please implement.

  4. Allow to add to a web page AdControl (Microsft Advertising module for Win Store)

    Hellow,

  5. Microsoft Bing Maps on Android

    Microsoft is now making Android Phones. So as a user of Windows phone my switch the other day made me realize I don't like google maps. I would simply like the app that worked on Windows Phone to work on Android. i.e. street view, etc. Here Maps isn't the solution. Cortona voice is missing, search within it isn't as good.

  6. The new Edge Dev is not saving the edited fields in fillable PDF-forms

    The organisation I work for has made the transition to the cloud. Employees in healthcare teams work with Office 365 E1 license and use SharePoint teamsites for their documents. The intranet is also made with SharePoint.

    In the current version of edge, employees are able to fill in fillable PDF's. This is an important feature, because the organisation is working online as much as possible.

    The new Edge dev is not saving the edited fields in fillable PDF's. Please make this functionality available! Microsoft want organisations to move to the cloud, I think this PDF functionality should be facilitated.

  10. Address bar at bottom in Edge for Android / iOS

    Please create the possibility to display the address bar at the bottom.

    The handling would be made much easier and the browser could be operated with one hand. Alternatively you can take the function Home from the Chrome as an example.

  11. Chromiuim MRU

    Please add a MRU option for CTRL+TAB tab switching. For people who are doing work in the browser, having MRU tab switching order is as important as having MRU switching order in Windows itself.

    Just like how most people would find ALT+TAB completely useless in Windows if it just cycled through your windows in the order they appear on your taskbar, CTRL+TAB is pretty useless when it just cycles through tabs.

  13. Modernize Internet Explorer for the enterprise

    Provide a single web browser that can support legacy enterprise applications as well as modern web development practices and features.

    Internet Explorer continues to be the most used browser even on Windows 10 PCs at the enterprise I work for. This is a problem when I reach for modern browser APIs and features since IE stopped advancing when Edge came on the scene. A comparison of IE 11, Edge 18 and Chrome 73 paints a picture: https://caniuse.com/#compare=ie+11,edge+18,chrome+73

    I realize maintaining IE's backwards compatibility blotted it over the years but hey, it comes with Windows so it doesn't really matter. If…

  14. Edge Chromium - Feedback

    Please make Google Translate Extension work with Edge Chromium
    Make Google and Bing Translate have right-click context menu for ease of use
    Reduce the spacing in Extension icons that are next to the address bar - too big

    Make extensions that are hidden in the menu not to come back to the tool bar, after you have disabled a different extension - what stays in the menu, stays there and doesn't come up unless you choose to bring it up

    Please consider replacing the word Favourites with Bookmarks

  17. search through open tabs with a hot key

    search through open tabs with a hotkey, this way
    users with lots of tabs open can find their way back to the tab instead of opening a new one / move tab to active window.

  19. Add Group Policy setting to disable delete browser history

    As an education customer, we do not want students to be able to delete browser history. Chrome and IE both have a Group Policy setting to prevent that. Could a Group Policy setting like IE's "Prevent access to Delete Browsing History" be added for Edge, please?
