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. 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

          • Media Capabilities API

            The Media Capabilities API allows developers to determine decoding and encoding abilities of the device, exposing information such as whether media is supported and whether playback should be smooth and power efficient, with real time feedback about playback to better enable adaptive streaming, and access to display property information.

            * Spec: https://wicg.github.io/media-capabilities/

            * Explainer: https://github.com/WICG/media-capabilities/blob/master/explainer.md

            * MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Media_Capabilities_API

            Chrome, Safari, and Firefox all have Media Capabilities support.

            • Developer's Account

              Hi, I was trying to create a developer's account and the account type was already selected for me as a business, I tried to change it to an individual but it won't let me. Anytime when I sign in with Microsoft account and try to sing up for developer's account, the account type is already selected and I can't change it. So I stopped there, I didn't create the account. How can I change that to an individual?

                        • pdf

                          stop hijacking PDFs with your terrible Edge app. I don't use Edge as my browser, but when I select open with Adobe, and set the default app to Adobe, Edge overrides it every time. Terrible. Adobe reader is great and Edge is very weak. please please stop it. it is the biggest flaw with Windows 10 (even worse than the games and bloatware)

                            I love the new MS Edge browser. However, I think the history needs be searchable. It is a simple feature that could be added and it would improve the user experience

                            • Assigned Access

                              Edge is supposed to be UWP!? Then why can't I choose it as the assigned app when setting up an Assigned Access Account in Windows 10 Pro? Edge really needs to support this Windows 10 feature. We are currently forced to download a third party browser app from the store to use a browser in this mode.
