Q: 58 keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Edge you must try

Edge, Microsoft's new browser, might be a rough diamond and you can make the most of it with a list of shortcuts we have compiled.

Keyboard shortcuts remain an essential tool for any computer user looking to improve their productivity, something not available on tablets or smartphones.

While the growing popularity of touchscreen computers means that some shortcuts are redundant, many will still prefer to use them because, well, they feel more natural and are usually a faster way of getting things done.

If you think we have missed some shortcuts, let us know in the comments.

Preferred Solution: 58 keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Edge you must try

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

machine: Dell XPS15 2014 with Windows 8.1
Windows 8 seems to have keyboard shortcuts that conflict with some software shortcuts.
I found this out when, using MS-Word, I hit the Ctrl + F1 shortcut, which toggles the ribbon, up to Windows 7.
Thanks to Windows 8, what this shortcut does is display a graphical representation of how bright the screen is.
Today, working with Adobe Indesign, I tried to use a shortcut specific to that software that allows one to create multiple instances of the same graphic - Alt + drag + right arrow key. What I got instead was my screen getting rotated 90 degrees.
This is a VERY serious issue, as clearly one can expect a raft of such Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts to interfere with professional workflow - just how many are there?
Can someone please confirm whether or not Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts can be disabled, and if yes, how.
Many thanks

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder. While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed? My AppData folder shows a creation date of 11/17/15 with no modifications being made in favorites since that date.

[My mouse is very acessable, but my keyboard is not. I know about various on-screen keyboards; but I would prefer clickable Icons that I could put in my quick launch toolbar, for example.]

Is this possible to do within XP, or with some program I can install?

I'm trying to create some shortcuts to my browsers on my new Windows 10 64bit PC, but I'm stuck on a couple issues:

- How can I create a private browsing shortcut for Opera? It's easy to do this for Firefox and Chrome - but I can't figure out how to do it for Opera.

- Is there still no way to create a desktop shortcut for the Microsoft Edge browser? I can't find any info on how to do this. And does Edge have a private browsing mode?

- Also, I'm trying to see if there's some add-on or some way I'm unaware of to shorten the url bar at the top of Opera and Firefox. In Chrome, I can just grab the right edge and move it over to the left to make more room for the extension icons. I have quite a few and in Opera and Firefox the url bar takes up a ton of the horizontal space, giving me little room for the addon icons.

I imported 25 items from IE 11 for my Favorites Bar. 17 is the max number that appears on the horizontal display of the Favorites Bar and 8 appear on the drop down portion below the 'V'. I found that I can drag and move ONLY the ones on the horizontal line to rearrange them, but that does not work on the ones on the drop down. I need to exchange four or five that appear on the drop down with others on the horizontal list to place them where I can easily access those which I use most often. Dragging or clicking doesn't work to move them from one location to the other. How can I rearrange them to the location I prefer?

A:Edge - Favorites Bar - How to move shortcuts?

Click on the Hub - the three horizontal lines near the right edge of the title bar. Then click on Favorites Bar and the list of all sites on the Favorites bar will appear in order. You can drag and drop them in the list.

Windows 10
Start - Settings - Ease of Access - Keyboard

Everything here is off. If i turn on the On-Screen Keyboard no keys are Highlighted (indicating they are depressed/stuck )
When I use the hard keyboard and sometimes even the onscreen keyboard its as if either Ctrl, Alt Win or something are pressed down as it just types shortcuts.
EG:

-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via onscreen keyboard types as normal
-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via hard keyboard brings up -Chrome://history- But now also on the onscreen keyboard Ctrl is Highlighted.
I click on the onscreen keyboard to deactivate the now highlighted Ctrl button and try again. Now things are different, as now both the onscreen keyboard and the hard keyboard both bring up ?Chrome://history- when -H- is typed ( Shift is not depressed )

This seems to randomly cycle one min onscreen keyboard works fine, next the keyboard works fine or they either work or none of the work rendering the computer useless.

I cant help feel it?s a software issue but im no pro and I don?t have an additional external keyboard to try but as the onscreen and hard keyboard work ok for a while sometimes I assume something is up and that?s what brought me here.

Hopefully this is clear enough to be understood and to help others who may have the same issue.

Thank you so much for your time.

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

I just ran my Microsoft Windows Update a couple of days ago which included Microsoft - Keyboard - Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard (Mouse and Keyboard Center). I think this is the culprit causing my problems. Now both my mousepad on my laptop and my mouse are active at the same time and I am unable to uninstall or turn off the mousepad. I've tried uninstall two different ways and neither worked after restarting and shutting down as per instructions. It is driving me crazy because it is extremely hard to type as the cursor will jump on the page and insert my typed letters into the wrong place. I have to get it uninstalled! Typing this is a nightmare and I am not dragging my thumbs on the pad or touching it in anyway. Any suggestions?

Microsoft Edge is the rebranding / reworked IE for Win/10 but . . .




Users and companies that cannot load their websites or apps because of the new engine -- can always turn back to Internet Explorer, which won?t be pinned to the taskbar, but will instead be available in the Start menu.Click to expand...

hmm; Incompatibility and security issues are why many left IE in the first place. Users of Firefox, Opera and Chrome have no (or few) compatibility issues so why step back into the fire???
 

A:Will you opt for Microsoft Edge?

I read about this a while back (when Edge (the name) was first announced). Has something changed since then? I thought the part you quoted is for those terrible businesses that have websites that require IE to work. I think Edge is a lot more cool with web standards than IE (especially older IEs) and Microsoft is basically saying if there is some site that requires IE to work properly, you will still have IE to fall back on to.
