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.

How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Unable to Undo code change in the Debugger.

    I made a change to a javascript code in the Debugger and unable to figure out how to undo the change without refreshing the Edge browser. There should be an undo button (or a re-do button)

    • Debugger Change downloadscript to the actual file name downloaded

      Took me a long time to figure which "downloadscript" that I need to debug from. I don't want to use the tooltip to search for my javascript code. Use of "downloadscript" is a very bad idea. Chrome and Firefox shows actual javascript file name.

      • Allow for the import of Outlook's contact list into Edge. This will make sending links to friends a lot easier.

        Make Outlooks contact list accessible in Edge, just as it is in Internet Explorer. This would make sending links by email in Edge much easier.

          Edge does not seem to support basic authentication for .PDF file types. Works fine for .htm and .html which prompt for credentials but PDF does not prompt

                • Option to disable auto-disabling of unsigned extensions

                  There are plugins I have either written or ported from chrome myself, which I have no intention of submitting to the store either because I intend them for my own personal use or don't own the rights to redistribute them.

                  Edge, however, wants to make life difficult for me, by automatically disabling these plugins every time I start the browser, forcing me to manually re-enable them.

                  I would very much appreciate an option somewhere, perhaps in about:flags, to disable this unwanted and unwelcome behavior. You don't need to overstep your bounds when it comes to trying to protect me; I'm…

                      • view frame source

                        please add view frame source, reload and reload frame in the right click popup menu, why do developers have to ask for elementary things to be implemented when they already exist for years in Chrome and FF ? I want to try Edge only because it is faster but every time I do I just rush back to Chrome, please provide the same developer freedom as Chrome has before claiming that Edge is better, speed alone will not cut it, every time I am in Edge I feel like my hands are in handcuffs.

                                    These are currently not supported by Edge.

                                    They work fine for range or date input, but someone just missed the most natural use of these methods for number input.

                                    • Hide download dialog box

                                      There should be a way to minimize or hide the download dialog box. If the download takes some time the dialog box prevents interactions with some elements in a webpage.

                                        Enable the live color picker, it's frustrating to have to write the RGB code for each color.

                                        • Allow SendKeys to an <input type="file"> for file uploading

                                          Using the WebDriver for Edge, and trying to use SendKeys to affect an <input type="file">, we get an error message that the element isn't focusable.

                                          This is something that works in other browsers. It's the simplest way to upload a file in Selenium since WebDriver can't interact with a file dialog on the desktop.

                                          This has been reported as an issue before:

                                          https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/7194303/

                                          ...but the only response has been "fixed internally" a year ago, which doesn't help those of us who don't work for Microsoft.

                                          If Edge is important to Microsoft, then you'll want web sites to work with it.…
