How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

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.
