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.

  2. Microsoft Edge - Opening office documents from SharePoint Online in the Desktop Applications

    We use Windows 10 and Edge Browser 44.17763.1.0
    in SharePoint Online on Classic Sites we have Document Libraries with the setting in Library Settings > Advanced settings> Open in Desktop Application

    Result: New File gets opened in the Browser.
    Existing Files open in Rich Client.
    Expected Result: New File Should be opened in Word 2016 Application.

    Further Testing:
    This behavior has been observed against SharePoint 2016 Sites.

    We tested on Modern Sites and here we noticed an not consistent behaviour: We had the files opened directly in…

  8. add shortcuts for highlight, pen and eraser when adding notes.

    it should be able to add shortcuts for highlight, pen and eraser when adding notes so it will be a lot easier to use and quicker, because taking notes need to be quick.

  9. Vertical bookmarks bar

    My laptop and my desktop both are widescreen. I have more screen real estate at either side of the screen. To take advantage of that, it would be great to have a vertical bookmarks bar instead of horizontal.

  18. Make edge more one hand friendly on Android.

    Edge on Android is freakin awesome, but a little more refinement will make edge even more enjoyable to use.

    1. Move the home button to the navigation bar instead of having it at the to near the address bar.
    2. Make the hub more easier to reach, It is up top which make it hard to reach on big phones.
    3. On the tab page, bring the Tab selection header to the bottom.

  19. Issues with pronunciation of words when using Read Aloud feature.

    There are some issues with pronunciation of specific words when using the Read Aloud feature.
    Examples:
    Walkthrough
    SSIS
    SSAS
    SQL
    SQL." (gets read as "es kew el dot", but just the capitalisation should be read, not the period.)

    Also, American dates get read incorrectly (08.12.18 can be read as 8th of December or 12th of August depending on the language of the page).
