Announcing Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android, Microsoft Launcher

Q: Announcing Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android, Microsoft Launcher

You?re standing in line at a coffee shop. Your right thumb is stre-t-ch-ing to drag out words on your phone?s keyboard while you squint to read the text on the web form you?re filling out. It?s amazing what?s possible today?but don?t you wish your phone could magically send that task to your Windows 10 PC where you could luxuriate in a big screen and hardware keyboard?

With the new preview apps we?re launching for iOS and Android ? you can. Introducing Microsoft Edge for iOS/Android and Microsoft Launcher for Android, two apps designed to make it easy to move what you?re working on between your phone and PC.

We are excited to continue the work we announced at Build to make Windows 10 PCs work great with your phone. Microsoft Edge for iOS is available starting today in preview, with Microsoft Edge for Android available soon in preview. And, Microsoft Launcher is available starting today in preview as well. Continue on PC functionality in both apps comes with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android
One of the most common requests we hear from people who use Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 PCs is ?we want our browser experience to move to our phones?. You spoke, we listened.

Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android brings familiar features like your Favorites, Reading List, New Tab Page and Reading View across your PC and phone, so, no matter the device, your browsing goes with you. But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you?re looking at right on your PC?or save it to work on later.


Beginning today, iOS users can test the preview app via Apple TestFlight, and Android users can sign up to be one of the first to test the preview app which will be available soon. Go here to sign up to test the Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android preview apps.

A few more details about the preview: Initially Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android will launch only in US-English, but we?ll ramp to other countries/languages as we expand the preview. And some features?like roaming passwords and support for iPads/Android tablets?aren?t available at preview launch but will come in the future.

Microsoft Launcher for Android


Android phones have a feature that iPhones don?t ? they allow customization of the ?launcher? that?s displayed when you push the phone?s home button. How nice! Today, we are also launching a preview release of our new Microsoft Launcher for Android. We think it?s the most beautiful (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available. With Microsoft Launcher, your recent photos, documents and more can all Continue on PC as well.

And ? just like on Windows 10 ? with Microsoft Launcher you can put icons of your favorite people right on the home screen so they?re quickly and easily available.


The Feed: Info at your Fingertips. With just a quick swipe-to-the-right, Microsoft Launcher offers a tailored feed of your important events, top news, recent activities, favorite people and most frequently used apps.


Beautiful and customizable. Launcher has wide-ranging ways to let you personalize your phone, it?s easy to set colors of backgrounds?and our new ?gesture? support will let even hard-core customizers create the environment that makes them most productive.


Continue on PC. And of course, Microsoft Launcher has been designed to make it easy for you to seamlessly continue what you?re working on ? whether it?s photos, documents and more?on your PC.

Microsoft Launcher represents the ?graduation? of the 4.6-star rated ?Arrow Launcher? project that was developed in our Garage ? we?re making a big update to Arrow and changing its name. Everyone on the Arrow Launcher beta will automatically get the Microsoft Launcher today, and any other Android users can join the preview of Microsoft Launcher beginning today as well.
Go here to access the Microsoft Launcher preview.

We hope Windows Insiders will try these preview apps alongside their Windows 10 PCs and provide feedback and ways to make them even better. As has been our approach with Windows 10, we?ll continue to try new things, learn and build the best experiences possible. We look forward to bringing these experiences more broadly to you later this year.

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder.

I have MS Works installed on two home computers with XP SP2. Both work ok, except for one problem. When I click on the Program menu "Microsoft Works Task Launcher, and don't select a Works program within, but just close the Launcher", it keeps running as an active task in the background - and won't open when I click on the Program menu "Microsoft Works Task Launcher" again (I guess since it is already running in the background).

If I "kill" the active task, I can again get it to open by clicking on the Program menu "Microsoft Works Task Launcher".

Is there a way that I can: (1) make it stop doing this, OR (2) find the running background task for the Launcher somewhere else and open it from there?

It's a pain when I don't open a selection within the Launcher to go through the procedure above, just to get it to open again. Appreciate any suggestions - hope I have explained the situation enough to get some help. Thanks.

Wow! How did I miss this one? I tested Office for Android when there were only Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Then Outlook became available. To be fair, I got an invite, but hadn't paid attention, since I didn't expect more than the base apps in the new Preview. My bad.

Now it seems that the whole enchilada is available for Android phones. I'm going to jump off the ledge and guess it's also available for Android tablets, since I haven't read Ed Bott's article.

Hello,
Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, Internet Explorer has apparently been replaced by Microsoft Edge. I experience difficulty with this new browser, in that it signals security problems for about every second website I want to go to - even absolutely reliable ones. If I click on the "continue anyway" button, nothing happens but the security warning reappearing. This blocks my access even to websites I need for professional use. Does anyone know how to get rid of this problem?

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.

Some questions concerning MS Edge;
 
 1. When will MSE be able to "remember" where I place the browser window when I close it? I don't like for the browser to be in Full Screen, so I run them in a smaller window. My other browsers, IE11 and Chrome, remember the placement of the window but MSE doesn't. This browser has been out for a year now (including Betas) and you would think this wouldn't be a problem. Or, just maybe, I've missed a Setting. Anyway, any help welcome.
 
 2. When is MSE expected to be able to support extensions? I would like to be able to run Web Of Trust. Thank you.
 
 

A:Microsoft Edge browser

 I won't use Edge until it supports something like the Adblock Plus extension.  Edge has other problems as well.  When I can use IE, Chrome, and Firefox, I don't know why I'd want to use Edge.  If MS wants to compete with Chrome (as I've read), they should make something that's competitive.  Thank goodness we don't HAVE to use Edge!
 
 By the way, the acronym MSE has always been used to mean Microsoft Security Essentials in the past.
 
 Good luck.

Hi

I'm using Firefox and there is Edge with windows 10 but I never use it so can I delete without causing problems?

Thanks

Doh!!
Sounds like a super dumb question

I used to stay away from Internet Explorer - have done so for many many years now.

I would use my laptop. Don't do ANYTHING dodgy - not even go to a single dodgy website.
Eventually... it would still come to a grinding halt 12 months later running super slow.
Somehow, I get spamware or a virus
(No... no one else using)

Having read about IE and how crap it was with security holes, I switched ti Firefox and then Chrome.

Just wondering is it safe to come back?
