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".

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.

  1. Group Policy for MS Edge to set a homepage but, allow users to change it. Like GPP Registry

    Currently, there is a GPO that would allow admin to set a homepage for MS EDGE, this however locks down the users ability to change the homepage.
    When you zoom in to the registry where the homepage is set, it has a warning: It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy

    Example:

    Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected - It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy]
    "ProtectedHomepages"=hex:01,00,00,00,06,ba,76,4e,b0,08,3e,cc,e2,88,ce,2f,b3,c4,\
    19,e7,ae,dc,31,71,c4,30,2c,81,75,60,e5,cb,63,4d,71,ab,8f,12,97,fe,1b,1f,f9,\
    5c,4a,e5,c8,72,33,ce,53,b5,c6,5f,e0,de,97,c7,d9,dc,93,3b,24,4d,f8,db,49,e7,\
    38,08,06,8f,f5,5e,34,50,27,c7,bb,4f,6c,49,03,ff,ca,8f,1f,48,f6,57,82,00,69,\
    2c,4e,0f,b7,2a,c2,25,9e,ba,6d,1a,e9,66,33,24,30,1d,6c,fc,f9,95,c5,f7,b5,a9,\
    f5,b2

    So, many control environments may want to set a different URL to be the default homepage but want to allow users to change it later on…

    • Support for Facebook

      As of 21 october 2017. Edge still hangs on FB on direct messages.
      This bug existed since 2015, and were never fixed.
      Edge needs to be closed and restarted. Then its 50% chance its Facebook compatible. Perssonal messages on requires 2-3 restarts to work. Even more if you don't copy text before closing.

      • Terrible extensions guide

        I'd like to know how to write extensions for Edge without having to write them for Chrome first and then port them over.

        • Assigned Key for making screen opaque and visible

          Assigned key or user can make any assigned key out of keyboard keys, pressing which makes system screen opaque, and again pressing which makes system screen visible with icons.

          • Si al realizar una búsqueda siguen apareciendo tantísimos anuncios patrocinados antes de los resultados relevantes, nadie usará edge nunca

            Si al realizar cualquier búsqueda en el explorador siguen apareciendo tantísimos anuncios patrocinados antes de los resultados relevantes y al final de cada página (sean debidos a Bing o a Edge o a Microsoft...), nadie usará Edge nunca.
            Debieran colocar los anuncios patrocinados aparte de la sección de resultados de búsqueda y, a poder ser, tratando de no instar a la gente a clicar en ellos mediante el engaño.

              • Persian-based Urdu keyboard

                Persian-based Urdu keyboard. While Urdu and Persian and Arabic share 95% the same letters, Urdu layout is completely different from Arabic and Persian, and very confusing for the millions of people who know both Urdu AND Arabic or Persian.

                  • Raise the connection timeout for slow connections as many sites don't show up at all.

                    On Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 on PC (using 3G networks), on limited bandwidth (64kbit/s), many websites will refuse to load at all, as Edge Closes the Connection as it times out. This worked fine with Opera on Windows 10, Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.1 and also works fine on Android's major browsers (Chrome, FF).
                    I suggest, the timeout should be raised on low-speed connections to allow the user to access websites at all. Adding a picture quality Setting would really not hurt either. I think this problem must be affecting many people who are on low-speed Internet.

                                • feedback hub link broken! Edge fails video from webcam, NO ERROR MESSG, works with legacy doc format but no user will be able to find it

                                  needs to provide useful error messages / user feedback so that a normal user can get legacy pages to display
                                  some legacy pages will NEVER be updated - eg. webcam
                                  IT MUST BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!
                                  there is no point having a link to "Feedback Hub" if it returns "page not found"

                                    This feature would scan (via a regex - eugh) for any URL inside a message and when found convert them into a hyperlink that will navigate the debugger.

                                    Proposed Design
                                    - Use the same logic as the debugger for detecting and canonicalization a URL into an absolute URL
                                    - Hyperlinks should appear as hyperlinks and when activated navigate the debugger
