How to Enable javascript for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 pro

Q: How to Enable javascript for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 pro

I have window 10 pro updated to the anniversary edition. I would like to use Microsoft Edge. The only problem is that the javascript is not enabled so most pages are not viewable. My system:
Toshiba C640 Laptop with intel i5 2nd generation.

It initially had Win7 Pro which I updated to Win 10 pro and then recently to win 10 pro with anniversary update. Before the anniversary update I had the same problem since the end of December last year (2015). I was able to enable javascript by fixing the registry. This fix got overturned after the anniversary update. Unfortunately I have forgotten the regedit fix steps. The group policy route is not relevant since the allow script option is not visible under group policy.

Preferred Solution: How to Enable javascript for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 pro

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.)

Hello and welcome,

Java, ActiveX, Silverlight, Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) and other plugins are not supported in Microsoft Edge. Most modern browsers are moving away from plugins and toward standard HTML5 controls and technologies.

Question: Where is the setting "Allows you to run scripts, like JavaScript" ?
I have read in other posts that javascript in Microsoft Edge can be turned off by using the Local Group Policy Editor and drilling down to

Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Microsoft Edge and modifying the setting "Allows you to run scripts, like JavaScript"

My problem is that there is no such setting.
These are the settings that are shown in policy editor

How do I disable Java script in Microsoft Edge browser ?

A:DIsable Javascript in Microsoft Edge

How do I disable Java script in Microsoft Edge browser ?

Looks like we can use the Developer Tools Emulation tab to choose a different browser (same as IE).  What happens if you choose IE11 and then make sure that the host name you are working with is in the Restricted Sites zone?
Also, Edge has a new Experiments tab.  It says Edit Javascript.  WTH does that mean?  Maybe you could convert each instruction to a Return statement?   <eg>

What Microsoft Edge is doing, at least from what I can see, is that any external javascript(ie javascript from any other FQDN that is different from the websites) is being "sandboxed" to an extent.

I'm not sure how much it is being sandboxed, but Edge will not let you see function code. So if you were to do a someFunction.toString(), you will get

"function someFunction() { [native code] }"

where as in any other browser you would get

"function someFunction(args, args1) { /*the functions code*/ }"

You can of course run the function but you can't print it out. Where this gets to be a problem is with Prototype. For subclasses, prototype does a toString of a function to see if it has "$super" as its first argument. If it does, then it knows to link that with a parent class's function. If prototype can't see a text version of the function, any subclasses will not work correctly.

I can't find anything about this on the internet. You can't change any security settings in Edge(there are not toggles).
Does anyone know any workaround or do we just have to wait and see if Microsoft will fix this?

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.

Okay: In the last few weeks, IE 7 kept asking me to upgrade to IE 8. Said no (Many times) Last week the computer did an automatic update for Microsoft software and after that ran, there was IE 8 instead of IE 7. I uninstalled IE 8. Okay- now have IE 7 back. However, now IE 7 will not run any website's javascript. This is script I know worked in IE 7 prior to this happening. I've gone through the Internet Options and enabled Scripting, etc. But I cannot get IE 7 to run any javascript at all. Any ideas of my next step? PS. I've checked the site(s) with other computers running IE7 and javascript runs just fine.

Hello all! Just want to thank you for your time and advice ahead of time! Now to my problem:

As of late, anytime I go to a website that uses JavaScript, my Java will not enable. I have gone to the Java website and it has told me my Java is working fine. I have also followed their instructions for enable Java in my web brower (in the FAQ section), without sucess. Also I have checked for updates and am told that I have the most current update available. I took a look at the threads already posted and noticed it was suggested to uninstall Java and then reinstall--but I wasn't sure if that meant the older versions of Java that I have on my system or ALL of them. Also, I didn't know if there could be any malicious software that is interfering with the JavaScript on my machine. Any clarification or suggestions are very much appreciated!

I use Juno with IE8 (I think)
I have Windows XP with all the current updates

PS Should I do the ToolbarCop? Would that help you all out??

Thanks again!

can anyone help?

A:Solved: anyone know how to enable Javascript for IE7 on NIS'07?

Do you mean JavaScript or (Sun) Java? I always thought that JavaScript was embedded in browsers, not security apps, and you would need to amend your browser's settings if, for some reason, JavaScript is not enabled (I don't know how to do that in IE because I don't use it, but someone else here will know).

If you mean that Norton requires Sun Java to be installed on your computer, you can check what, if any, version you already have here; http://www.javatester.org/ If you have a version earlier than Version 3 Update 6 you should uninstall it and get the latest one from here; http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

(If you click 'JavaScript' on the left hand side of the javatester site, you can also find out if your browser does currently have JavaScript installed and working).

The Microsoft Edge browser has become a failure in Windows 10, so Microsoft has reportedly decided to add it to Windows 7.

Although end-of-life for Windows 7 occurs in January 2020, Microsoft reportedly plans to add Microsoft Edge to it in mid/late 2019.

If that's true, and if Microsoft decides to support Microsoft Edge beyond January 2020, I'm guessing more people will continue to use Windows 7 instead of switching to Windows 10.

Time will tell.

Microsoft Edge comes out as a promise to finally end the bad era of Internet Explorer. It?s a browser built from scratch with new UI, new engine and many other promising things. On the speed test front, Edge now on par with or sometime faster than its competitors. However, one thing that keep people from changing to Edge is the lack of extension. Microsoft promised it would come shortly after the July launch of Windows 10. Now the feature is pushed further into early 2016. And no extensions means no ads blocking at this time. Ads blocking has become an important thing and for laptop/tablet users, it?s crucial because these ads are eating away your battery. While waiting for Edge?s extensions, I?ll show you how to use Hosts file as a way to block ads.
Yes, Flash is fading away. Even Adobe now recommends using HTML5 instead of Flash. While ads nowadays also mostly in HTML5 but a large number of them still in Flash form. Disabling Flash will take out some annoying ads. I disabled Flash for a long time and have noticed almost nothing different in term of functions. So here?s how to disable Flash in Edge.
Click the ellipsis button on that top right and select Settings
Scroll down and click ?Advanced Settings? button
Switch off the toggle ?Use Adobe Flash Player?

Since an automatic Windows 10 update, over which I had no control, Microsoft Edge is not working - as described by others in this forum.

All my bookmarks and history have been wiped and I'm unable to perform web searches other than through Chrome, which I haven't used in the past so have no history, or through web addresses contained in emails - which is how I managed to log into my Tech Support Guy account.

I feel this is totally unethical as not only am I being forced to use Chrome, which is not my choice, I have lost a great deal of information, links and web addresses that are of great importance to me.

At no time before, after or during the process was I warned that I would lose this facility and all the history that went with it.

I am beyond words and would appreciate some advice.

Today, we have updated the Microsoft Edge Dev site with major fixes and new features, including Windows 10 virtual machines with Microsoft Edge and a faster, clearer platform roadmap. With these features, we are excited to remove the ?Beta? tag from Microsoft Edge Dev, and will be redirecting modern.ie to our new home.

Test your site in Microsoft Edge with free Windows 10 virtual machines

Windows 10 virtual machines are now available with the latest updates to Microsoft Edge and the underlying web platform. With this release, we have automated the process we use to create the virtual machines, so future updates will be available more quickly as the platform is updated. By popular demand, we?ll also be supporting new formats for VMs, starting with Vagrant boxes (with VirtualBox) and QEMU. You can expect to see these starting in the coming weeks.

We have also updated RemoteIE to use the latest Microsoft EdgeHTML rendering engine inside Internet Explorer, which gives a very similar rendering experience to testing inside Microsoft Edge. RemoteIE continues to leverage Azure RemoteApp to enable cloud-based testing across platforms without the need to download virtual machines. We are also continuing to work on making Microsoft Edge available via Azure RemoteApp and will provide further updates as we make progress.

The company this week announced the officially Windows 10-compatible version 5.5 of EMET. However, it launches as a tool that Microsoft believes is now largely redundant, thanks to inbuilt security improvements it has made to Windows 10.

Microsoft is so confident of how it has hardened its Windows 10 Edge browser that it's dropped support for it in EMET 5.5.

"Given the advanced technologies used to protect Microsoft Edge, including industry-leading sandboxing, compiler, and memory-management techniques, EMET 5.5 mitigations do not apply to Edge," Microsoft's EMET team said.

Microsoft is just as confident that Windows 10 devices won't need EMET.

A little over a year ago, we outlined our vision to bring Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) to the more than half a billion devices running Windows 10. We believe PWAs are key to the web?s future, and couldn?t be more excited about their potential to enable more immersive web app experiences across all device form factors.

Today, we?re excited to take a major step from vision to reality, starting with some updates on previewing PWAs in Windows and our roadmap to bring PWAs to the Microsoft Store.

Beginning with EdgeHTML 17.17063, we have enabled Service Workers and push notifications by default in preview builds of Microsoft Edge?you can learn more about those features in Ali?s post, ?Service Worker: Going beyond the page.? This completes the suite of technologies (including Fetch networking and the Push and Cache APIs) that lays the technical foundation for PWAs on Windows 10.

Over the coming weeks, we?re also kicking off some experiments with crawling and indexing quality PWAs from the Web to list them in the Microsoft Store, where users can find them just like any other app on Windows 10.

In this post, we?ll give a quick introduction to Progressive Web Apps ? what they are, the problems they solve, and how we?ll be enabling them across Windows 10. We?ll explore how our indexing experiments will ramp to an end-to-end PWA discovery experience later this year, and how we?ll empower developers to differentiate their PWAs on Windows ? including allowin...

I am creating our new corporate Windows 7 image (both 32 and 64 bit).  But I am trying to figure out how to enable "Microsoft updates" (not Windows Update) in the image via a reg edit or some other means that I can incorporate in an automated
fashion.  I've searched on the net but haven't found any good info.  Also, I am not looking to accomplish this via Group Policy since some of our machines operate off of our domain and dont receive policies.  Can someone point me in the right
direction?  Thanks.

I actually stumbled across this script on technet which works quite well.  You can use this to disable or enable the MS Update service in Windows 7.
