Does Microsoft Edge function as part of Internet Explorer?

Q: Does Microsoft Edge function as part of Internet Explorer?

A few days ago I noticed in the task managers App History tab that Edge had logged 925 MB in the past month, more than all other applications combined. When I went to Edge settings, I tried to delete saved history etc.. I turns out I wound up deleting saved log-ins and passwords in Windows/Internet Explorer. I did not realize that they are interconnected, is there any to recover them?
Microsoft keeps trying to get us to use Edge but it does not have the same functionality as Internet Explorer....Logman

Preferred Solution: Does Microsoft Edge function as part of Internet Explorer?

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.)


I play a game that when I click on a link in the Chat it opens my browser and opens it directly to the link, but my Default browser is Microsoft Edge but, it always opens for me Internet Explorer 11.
Can anyone help me in this please?

Hello Rip,

See if using OPTON SIX in the tutorial below to select Microsoft Edge, and click/tap on Set this program as default may help. It will set Microsoft Edge as the default program for all supported file associations.

It seems any real work or asking question about MS Edge not doing any thing very well except saying it' read fast get covered up. Will Yes it is fast because it doesn't do very much. I keep reading about problems I am having and the solution is always use
the option to open it with IE. So what good is Edge other then adding another layer of confusion without controls.
If it doesn't get fixed real quick. It will cause many users to start dumping Windows 10 and going other places for support, like Apple, or getting off of windows systems. Right now it is a pain in the backside, and don't try tell us how good it is,
because you sound like Bagdad Bob did in IRAQ.
MS Edge needs serious work to make it functional for real work...

Internet Explorer turns 20 this year, but there will be no celebrations. Instead, IE is being pushed off the Windows desktop in favor of a new web browsing experience: Microsoft Edge.

Internet Explorer is not dead, nor will it be missing from Windows 10 when it ships on July 29. Instead, it will be like the ironing board you take out of the closet when you absolutely have no choice but to iron that shirt. You?ll use IE when Microsoft Edge?s forward-leaning technology doesn?t support the outmoded past.

Microsoft executives explain the name by saying it lives "at the edge of modern web standards and capabilities" and seeks to push limits. It may also be called this because it's an edgy gamble on the future, one that Microsoft did not approach lightly.

I ran CCleaner today (Great program by the way!), like I do every couple weeks, and it said that edge and internet explorer needed to close to finish. Thing is, I use neither. So Do they auto run in the background? How can I keep them from starting?

A:CCleaner needs to close microsoft edge and internet explorer?

never receive this message unless they are open, the browsers. Even shutting off Live Tile in start menu for Edge i do not think is the cause. Possible some other program is using these browsers, maybe due to Ccleaners monitoring feature found in settings.Try to disable it and see.

Today, Google Project Zero published details of a class of vulnerabilities which can be exploited by speculative execution side-channel attacks. These techniques can be used via JavaScript code running in the browser, which may allow attackers to gain access to memory in the attacker?s process.

Microsoft has issued security updates (KB4056890) with mitigations for this class of attacks. As part of these updates, we are making changes to the behavior of supported versions of Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 to mitigate the ability to successfully read memory through this new class of side-channel attacks.

Initially, we are removing support for SharedArrayBuffer from Microsoft Edge (originally introduced in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update), and reducing the resolution of performance.now() in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer from 5 microseconds to 20 microseconds, with variable jitter of up to an additional 20 microseconds. These two changes substantially increase the difficulty of successfully inferring the content of the CPU cache from a browser process.

We will continue to evaluate the impact of the CPU vulnerabilities published today, and introduce additional mitigations accordingly in future servicing releases. We will re-evaluate SharedArrayBuffer for a future release once we are confident it cannot be used as part of a successful attack.

Dear Support,

I have an in-house web application that accesses Windows network locations, using something like this:

<a href: file://<file-location>>Click here</a>

The internal website is added to Trusted Sites, with security settings to allow the application to open folders/files within our network.

In Internet Explorer, on Windows 7, this works fine.
On Windows 10, although this still works fine in Internet Explorer (without any messages), Edge prompts the user to confirm the irritating Did you mean to switch apps? message.
Can this be removed/overwritten/anything?!

Thanks in advance

Our company  website contains a collection firmware and executable for our customers to download. Customers running Chrome, Firefox, or early versions of the IE have no issues. Customers running IE11 and
Edge on Windows 10 report that .exe files download properly, but the firmware files with a custom extension do not. Instead, IE11 opens a new tab and the new window contains a little "X" icon. That's it. Nothing in the Download area. 
Some of our more adventurous customers searched through there Temporary Internet folders and found the firmware files stored as .ICO files. When the files were copied out and renamed back to to the proper extension
(the main part of the name was correct), our product read the files just file. Any idea why are the files getting their extension changed to .ICO and why are they not appearing in the download area. This is affecting multiple customers.

We have an issue which occurred on 1 day but did not re-occur but we require a root cause.
We use Internet Explorer 11 to access our internal SAP Portal CRM.
For some reason on this day it would not open in Internet Explorer and we got the error "This page cannot be displayed".
It did, however open in Edge.
As per the technician that dealt with this, he cleared the Credential Manager and after that it opened up in Internet Explorer.
This makes no sense to me what Credential Manager has to do with this, as web login details are disabled in the IE Policy.
As well as, the page did not bring up a login screen, went straight to Page cannot be displayed.
Is there anyone that can a light on this?

I noticed that in IE 11 on Windows 8.1 that there was this slightly perceived typing lag when entering text in fields displayed in the browser. This lag would not be present in Chrome, Opera, and others... so that's what would make it noticeable. When you type fast, it is most noticeable, but not so bad as to obstruct typing or create errors.

However, now in Windows 10, the lag has increased. Painfully so. I find that with my typing rate, the keyboard input cannot "keep up" and I lose letters! I'd have to go back and correct works due to missing letters. I've resorted to keeping Textpad open and typing all my text there, then copy/paste into the browser fields. The different is very noticeable.

I've searched around and found a few scattered tips about dealing with this, but nothing seems to help. I have to believe there's a setting SOMEWHERE that is responsible. Or... is this a byproduct of Microsoft key logging?

Dear Sirs,

I sure hope you can help me.

My operating system is Windows XP SP2.

I am currently running IE version 7. But you should know that I will
experience the Identical problem while running IE v6.0.2800... or IE

Since my IE does not work I am using Firefox to communicate with

Most of the time when I try to access the browser I get a blank
window with the following error pop-up.

"Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Included in that message is a statement that says: "To see what data
this error report contains click here." Upon clicking here I see
the following error signature:

"AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 7.0.6000.16441 ModName: kernel32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2945 Offset: 00012a5b"

There is also an extremely lengthy and detailed report entitled "Error
Report Contents" included, but it will not allow me to copy it.

Sometimes when I bring up the browser a window will appear just
as it should. But when I try to follow any link I get the same scenario
as explained above.

Can you help me?

Please let me know what further information you need.

Kindest Regards,

Hello everyone!
Last night I installed Bitcomet (latest version). Well I'm done using it and I uninstalled it via programs and features. Then I rebooted. Now when I find a file on Internet explorer 7 (any kind of file really) that I want to save or open, nothing happens.

If I click on a file to download the usual Windows Prompt opens and asks me to Save/Open/Cancel and if I click Open or Save, nothing happens. This use to work fine before I installed BitComet.

I figured out the problem. When you install bit comment it ties itself to I.E. browser extension during the install. So it kinda becomes the download manager for I.E. So I need to figure out how to set this back to default since I uninstalled Bitcomet.
I set programs to default. I looked in file extensions and that looks normal. Crap this sucks!
Any ideas?


A:Internet Explorer Save/Open Function

You could try opening Internet Options in Control Panel. Click on the Programs tab and select Manage Add-Ons. It is possible that removing BitComet did not remove the reference within Internet Explorer.
Other than that may be worth checking your File Associations and make sure BitComet is not set as the default application for opening specific file extensions.

(2)The Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates can immediately establish reputation with SmartScreen reputation services even if no prior reputation exists for thatfile or publisher.

(3)Application reputation is evaluated by antivirus results, download traffic, download history,and URL reputation.

Some one said that if I use algorithom such as SHA1 , SHA2 or SHA1 ,SHA256 dual-sign,it can avoid the SmartScreen's prompt. but some other said that you should use EV Code Signing Certificates
to avoid the prompt.

  Not sure if it has to do with my mouse or what exactly, but when ever any part of my wrists touch anywhere around the bottom edge of my fairly new acer laptop, navigation and typing in general is affected. There is also this small round circle thing that appears. This seems to be connected to where ever my right hand/index finger moves the mouse pointer. If I release my right hand then the thing will disappear, if I try to switch hands and use the left hand to hold down on the mouse/touchpad, the circle will disappear. Showed this to two people who have a lot of technical knowledge, and they had neve seen it before, and did not know how to possibly fix it or find any setting that might be related. I hope this inserted image helps clarily just what I am needing help with. Thank you and please let me know if more info is needed.

I'm having a terrible time trying to determine which number on the label of my old screen will get me the part I need.   Just ordering for an Edge 15 80k90000US   has not worked.
The LED/Touch  that I need has the following label:
P/N:  SD 10G85620  (this put into the parts lookup does not work)
FRU:  00JT261  
there is also:  LP156Wf4 (sp)(l1) 
The difference between the ones I am seeing are whether or not they have the sensor on the strip that is attached to the ribbon on the lower left corner (when looking at the back of the screen).  attached is the label on my screen and shows the sensor strip.
I can look for any of those numbers and get different looking screens no matter where I'm searching.. Some photos people post are dark and if that strip is folded up, It might appear to not be there at all.     
Can anybody give me a clue?
my serial # is:  ########
MO:  R9NOB572200B
MTM  08K90000US
Mod's Edit: Serial number removed from public view to protect member from its unwanted use.

I've never seen anything like this. Okay, here's the system rundown --- Running win 7 pro sp1 64 bit on a Dell xps 8000. Replaced hard drive one month ago, and I've used Seagate's diagnostic tool to check out hard drive, which didn't find any errors with the hard drive.

So, here's problem 1:
Computer was running great up until four days ago. It wouldn't wake up out of sleep properly. It would freeze. I would have to reboot to wake it up. It won't even let me LOG OFF correctly because when I go to log back on, I don't get the prompt to choose the user or enter my password. When I reboot --- that I can only do by shutting on and off the power, it's fine. The computer starts up fine in SAFE MODE, so I'm not detecting any issues there.

Problem 2:
Internet explorer 10 (got it with one of the updates two weeks ago) simply would HANG and not open. Even with I would click it once and open task manager to see what was happening, it showed multiple instances of explorer open. So, what I did was turn OFF Explorer 10 in the "turn windows features on or off" section. But when I when to turn them back on to see if it would reset, I not only lost the default windows icons from the start bar, Explorer refused to initialize when I tried to start it from "Programs" or from clicking the explorer.exe icon in both Programs (64 bit) and Programs (x86).

To this point I've done the full scan disk, and also run SCAN NOW. I also have anti malware software ... Read more

There is a problem in which Flash Player stops once during the operation of the business portal currently operating based on Flash Player, so please contact us.

As a result of the verification, it is confirmed that it is not related to Adobe's Flash Player and is related to the function of Shockwave Flash Object installed in Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11.

Therefore, I would like to know whether it is possible to delete and reinstall the Shockwave Flash Object function.
And I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade or downgrade only the version of the Shockwave Flash Object (or any other related function) while leaving the version of Internet Explorer.

Thank you.

Does anyone know what the function of the white part is?


A:Identify the function of this part?

Looks like a power connector to me. The small FD molex connects to it, probably to power the board, as its loks like the power goes to the HD separately.

I've just done a full factory default restore using Packard Bell's Smart Restore. Wiping out all my installed programes which is what I expected however when re-installing my browser and addon IE7Pro I no longer have the drop and drag function allowing me to highlight a search term or web written link and drag it to the left or right opening up a new tab in a new window.

I would like to know how I get it back, Or if I've missed something simple disenabling this function thanks.

Both my browser and add-on version is the same as before I did the restore.
