Preferred Solution: Google chrome and Microsoft edge not working for Windows 10

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 have had problems with Edge opening my Facebook etc very slowly. I even downloaded Firefox to see if it was faster. I prefer Chrome. It is much faster than Edge or Firefox. However, there is something weird happening. When I start my computer and tell Cortana "Facebook log in" it opens up with Chrome and some other pages but some pages open with Edge. Now I know that Outlook, my Hotmail, is a Microsoft product so I wasn't surprised that it opens with Edge but some other pages open with Edge and some with Chrome. Am I missing something. I went to Settings and looked where it says Browsers and it says that Chrome is my default. I gave Edge a 4 month chance. I had Chrome set as my default and Microsoft sent down a large update, it set Edge as my default. I got tired of the slow speed in opening my web pages, Facebook,etc. I only play one game in Facebook and Edge caused it to be so slow when playing it. I reset Chrome as my default and now the game is way faster. Getting to the web page is not the problem, using it once you log in is. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just had to totally reformat my hard drive and re-install Windows 10 1709 (os build 16299.15). I cannot find any way to change my default browser to Google Chrome. There is no option available in Settings /default apps. How can I do this. If someone knows how to do it in the registry, that would be great. I think Microsoft sucks to force crappy Edge on people. It doesn't work well at all on my rig. Thanks in advance!

A:Can't change Edge to Google Chrome

Microsoft Edge is NOT forced on people who use Windows 10.
You can choose to use Internet Explorer if you want to - which is what I use in Windows 10.

Have you downloaded and installed Google Chrome?
Is it in the "Programs And Features" list?

I've noticed this odd text display on some sites, but not all, websites using Google Chrome. MS Edge displays the same text correctly. I also use Chromium browser on Ubuntu Linux which displays correctly as well. The website is Canonwatch. The font will display a single "f" okay but not double "ff"s. It seem to be a text bloggers type in, not the webpage's standard font.
Anyways, just seems weird. Any ideas?

I downloaded key generator from this website(

), and when I executed it, my windows 7 laptop automatically restarted. It tried to boot windows 7 back, but ended up in loop.startup repair screen came again and again for couple of hours, and then I managed to somehow bring back my laptop to factory settings. I think it is some type of Virus/Malware. Please do not download the keygen in the link I provided.

Now, I got it corrected and windows 7 works. But after that incident, I am facing many problems in my laptop.

Few are

1) Google chrome opens, but if I try to navigate to some website, it just strucks there. Google chrome is not able to open any website.
2) Laptop is slow.
3) The task manager shows google Chrome is still opened, even after I close it.

I just installed Windows 10 a few hours ago, and i did a few set ups.

-Had to re-install security Kaspersky Antivirus since i had to remove in order to install the new Windows (wouldn't let me)
-Tried re-installing Comodo, but installer from Windows 8.1 (migrated with no files deleting) was corrupted. When i tried to download, saw Comodo doesn't support the firewall anymore, so i chose an alternative: TinyWall. It gave me a few problems at first, it blocked literally everything. I touched some stuff and added the needed exceptions. Now Edge connets to internet, as before it didn't, nor did any other browser. I can browse ALL OVER THE WEB, ALL OF IT. Except Google. Like Microsoft's trolling me making me choose Bing, i cannot access to google.com or any extension for any country.

Anyone suffered this? I tried rebooting, and even turning TinyWall off.

Message i'm getting: regular "We can't access this page, try this"..

Hi, random ads kept popping up while browsing, so i went online and discovered adwcleaner for your site, which I installed and ran, I am guessing it cleaned up the browser, but now edge browser says "Can?t connect to the proxy server" and chrome says "There is no Internet connection", but firefox works which I am using now. I'm guessing a setting was changed or a file removed.

How can I solve this issue.

Google Chrome has not been performing properly. I tried to open it and it won't or take too long. so I decided to uninstall it, I have tried through System/Apps and Features/and click on Chorme and uninstall and it didn't go away. I also tried through Control Panel/Programs/Programs and Features/ Chrome, uninstall and it doesn't ask for anything else, takes like 20 minutes and ask me to close all the chrome windoes open (which I don't have any open) and the program is still there.

I updated my windows 7 desktop to Windows 10. I made Google chrome my Default browser. Both Google chrome and Firefox are working perfectly. I tried to open Microsoft Edge but get errors such as: " Can't reach this page & make sure I have the right web address." . I' typing known web addresses i.e. Yahoo, iMore | The #1 site for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and all things Apple!. Can any tell me what I'm doing wrong? I want to use EDGE sometime WITHOUT making it my DEFAULT browser.

Any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

A:Microsoft Edge not Working

When are in the "Where to Next?" page, you cannot use periods unless .com .gov .org, etc. For example: I want to search the Chevrolet 6.5 Turbo Diesel in a 1984 Chevy truck --> I cannot do what I just said because of the period between 6 and 5. Press the "Home" button and then you can use periods on the homepage which is MSN. You can change it to Google by simply:

1. Going to the triple dot in the top right corner
2. "Settings"
3. "Advanced Settings" in "Settings"
4. Turn on "Show the Home Button" if you already haven't then
5. Highlight what it says in the box under and change to Google and you should be able to go from there.

Now, when you go on Edge, always press the Home button, then you can be on your way. Even in a new tab.

Hope this helps your issue, if not please tell us what else is happening, or tell us if it worked or found a solution yourself.


Edit: You know, I just thought of another thing. I had this problem before too, press "Search for what you want" and that should work as well. I had that problem when it said that Google had the wrong address when clearly I didn't.

These issues came about shortly after upgrading to windows 10.
1) The Microsoft edge icon, the calculator icon, and the windows store icon are all blank on the quickstart bar.  I can still click where they should be.  Clicking on the Microsoft edge location eventually opens up the program.  Clicking on where the calculator icon should be says that I have to contact my sys admin to repair or reinstall the app.
2) Click on the windows icon button in the lower left hand corner does nothing.
3)  I can open google chrome but cannot access any web page.
4) Task manager is extremely slow to open. (initially not responding)
5) Using alt-tab to switch programs (which is usually very responsive and quick) does not immediately show open programs when holding the two buttons together down as well as it being extremely slow.

Nothing seems to help. I have a toolbar which appears intermittently at the top of my Google home page. I am using Microsoft Edge. It has a close (x) button and can be shut down but it reappears and hijacks searches in Google whenever it appears. You think you are typing in Google but your typing is actually being hijacked to the unwanted toolbar which then searches in Yahoo. Also separate pop ups appear from time to time in small minimised windows. Also sometimes an extra tab is inserted into Microsft Edge.

I have used Adware Cleaner, Malware Bytes, CCleaner, and Hitman Pro nut nothing seesm to fix the problem. It also infects Internet Explorer if I open that. I have removed and reinstalled Edge but that didn't work either.

Any solutions would be appreciated.

 Hi experts,
    I have a following problem - I am using the Site to Zone Assignment List GPO to assign the local site to trusted sites in order to enable automatic logon. Now when I open the URL in IE11 it works just fine - when I click on Sign In on
the portal it reloads and the user is signed in. When I verify the zone via File -> Properties menu I see, that the site is assigned to the "Trusted Sites" zone. doing the same on the same computer with the same user on Microsoft Edge doesn't
work - it asks for credentials. Now:
 - What is the potential reason for this? I also configured the "Do not sync browser settings" GPO to Disabled and I see it is applied properly
 - Where can I verify in Edge which zone has been assigned to the particular URL (that's a must for troubleshooting this problem)
Thank you in advance for any hints

I have google.com.au set as home page as I mainly start browsing with a search. I first started to have problems last night when opening a new TAB for a new search and selecting Home page rather than using the Bing search on the new TAB. As soon as I start typing the search bar jumps to the top left corner and gives you a few suggestions, but after I finish entering my search word/term and click the search icon or press enter I can see internet traffic by the light on 3g modem but the page remains blank.
This is now starting to happen on my homepage when first opening Edge. I type in my search the search bar jumps to top left corner showing a couple of suggestions, but that's as far as it will go.

It does however work normally sometimes. Last night was the first time I came across this problem and I'm sure I've done searches this way since I started using EDGE without any problems.

I had my wife try the same thing (in EDGE) with the same result, though she uses Firefox as her default browser.

A:Google Search not working in Edge

Your better half is playing it smart having another browser in use since Edge at this time is still an adequate replacement for IE or any other browser! It's still a "Work in Progress" in that sense. MS simply slapped it in fast on 10 rather then waiting until if was fully developed just like 10 has the Windows Feedback present in the Windows Accessories suggesting why 10 is a free upgrade at this time is that it's still not quite the final RTM? MS wants the feedback first!

Hi,I was recently infected with the Windows Repair bug and fixed (maybe its still there) it via one of the posts on the sites. So I'm thinking I might have had a couple of other infections that were dormant for a while or Malwarebytes or Symantec never noticed.After fixing that, I noticed Google Chrome stopped working. When I started googling in Firefox and IE i noticed the page would redirect. And then an the "Internet Explorer Script Error" with the URL pointing to apparent spam urls "http;//celebrity-gossip.net/ashley-tisdale..." as an example. So I updated and ran Malwarebytes AM, Symantec & Microsoft Defender to see what they would. Symantec found an bloodhound virus in an archived drive. And i cleaned whatever Malwarebytes found, forgot now since its been a 4 days.I've tried the TDDSkiller.exe and that wouldnt launch.

Hi! I am a heavy google search user who frequently uses google to: define ___, calculate equations etc.
But recently my google search results is changed to:

The top bar still appears perfectly normal when I am not in the search result page:

If it is related, bing has problem as well - it goes black screen:

The characteristics are:
One page itself:
- Words appear bigger
- It seems like I've log out but I am actually still logged in
- Google tips and tricks such as define, tilt etc all are not working
- Clicking "more" and "search tools" refresh the page and does nothing. 
- In other places such as email, youtube, the functionality remains completely normal and unaffected
- I do not think the problem is related to the external internet settings as other devices are able to access these functions/websites without any problem. 
- I have no problem accessing any other webpages.
Solutions tried and still not working:
- Completely reset google chrome's setting
- Reinstalling google chrome
- Resetting internet explorer setting
- Resetting computer's ip setting through cmd- netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
- Full scan with avast antivirus.
Any other ideas please? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated as these tips and tricks are a truly useful function for me. 

A:Google Chrome: Google Search Extra Functions (Tips) Not Working

 I too have the exact same problem. i have tried hard for a month+ on 100s of sites with no avail. this probably is some super smart form of malware/virus which changes your IE's lan proxy settings to "", this seems to affect chome and IE while firefox looks ok. the only "visible" difference is with the google main page as you described you'll also notice that at the bottom of the page, the number of page results are limited to 10 and no more, you just cant see more results than that. I couldnt find any any solid fix to this (not even complete reformat) The only temporary solution(till next reboot) seems to be to go to internet options in IE - connections tab - deselect that proxy setting and select automatically detect settings though i personally use hola better internet extension which seems to fix the problem till its kept on. I want this dreaded issue to get some attention so that am actual solution is found :/

So, i recently upgraded from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome after a batch of virus problems that i FINALLY got removed from my computer and at the suggestion of many other people.

It worked fine for a week or two, then i noticed randomly it would decide that a website/page i was on either had too many cookies to load i'd get an "oh snap" this page isn't working because of "blah" error, (it had a little file folder with a angry face on it). usually closing the browser then opening it back up would fix the problem. Several times i'd have to go delete all the temp files/cookies etc for it to work right again.

Well tonight it started doing something even more weird, it wouldn't load anything.
Every site i tried to type up there in the http:// bar it would just forever be "searching" for the link then half of the time it would just say sorry "the page can not be displayed"

I tried going to google (my home page) typing in the site for instance "tech guys" and search, it would find a page full of websites, but when i clicked on the link (to any of the options) it would either a: pretend it was looking and just refresh the exact same search results page i was on, or be go into a forever loading process which usually resulted in it saying "the page can not be displayed." I used my phone to look up why this might be happening and people mentioned "disabling" the HTTP of which i had no id... Read more

I got this (new) laptop for Christmas and I don't believe I didn't set up a family account. (I'm 17) Apparently I have a family account with my moms email. I downloaded Google Chrome and now it's saying I need to ask (to my moms email) permission to use
the Google Chrome app. We went to her email and it brought us to a page that said 'manage preference's' for my account. When we clicked on that, all that would come up would ask if I would allow adults in the family to help check the health and safety of my
device. So hw do I allow my laptop to let me use Google Chrome? Is there a setting in Microsoft to let me that I haven't found?

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.

Doubles IE8's potential security problems, cripples privacy mode, argues exec.
Microsoft today warned Internet Explorer (IE) users that they could double their security woes if they installed and used Google Chrome Frame, the plug-in that provides better JavaScript performance and adds support for HTML 5 to Microsoft's browser.
"It's not necessarily that plug-ins aren't or can't be secure, but that running a browser within a browser doubles the potential attack surface in a way that we don't see is particularly helpful," said Amy Bazdukas, Microsoft's general manager for IE.

Defends plug-in, says it makes IE more secure, not less.
Google hit back at Microsoft today, defending the security of its new Chrome Frame plug-in and claiming that the software actually makes Internet Explorer (IE) safer and more secure.
"Accessing sites using Google Chrome Frame brings Google Chrome's security features to Internet Explorer users," said a Google spokesman today. "It provides strong phishing and malware protection, absent in IE6, robust sandboxing technology [in IE6 and on Windows XP], and defenses from emerging online threats that are available in days rather than months."
Although both IE7 and IE8 include a "sandbox" defense dubbed "Protected Mode," the feature works only when the browsers are run in Vista (IE7 and IE8) or Windows 7 (IE8). Google's Chrome Frame, however, prevents malicious code from escaping the browser -- and worming its way into, say, the operating system -- on Windows XP as well.

Chrome Web Store - Office Online

While Google is ignoring Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system largely when it comes to company applications, Microsoft's change in business strategy has seen the release of several non-Windows applications in the recent past.

The latest addition to the growing number of applications is Office Online, a browser extension for Google Chrome to improve how Office files are viewed, edited and created in the browser.

A:Microsoft releases Office Online extension for Google Chrome

Great extension, it's better than the default Web App links.

Something similar for Firefox, but it's basically an alternate to bookmarks (Office-Online - not by Microsoft).

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.

Have had Windows 10 for over 6 months. No problems. Then a few days ago Microsoft Edge starting blocking pop-ups like crazy and getting constant "re-directs". Think a game download may have had malware attached. Now can't figure out how to get rid of these constant problems. Anybody else experiencing this and if so, have you figured out how to stop it? Also.....tried to just use regular IE instead of Edge, but just keep getting the "....can't display this page" message. Thanks in advance for any help!!!!!!
