When Edge misbehaves, standard fix fails
Reader Vella Biagio tried Win10’s new Edge browser, but he soon ran into problems that resisted even Microsoft’s recommended repair.
- “I upgraded to Win10 and like it. But Edge is giving me trouble.
“Whenever I close any tab, Edge closes all tabs and I have to start reloading pages from scratch.
“I had a chat with a Microsoft tech, and, using remote control, she changed the Registry ‘asktoclosealltabs’ key from 1 to 0. When she tried closing a tab, it worked correctly. However this happened only once.
“Later, when I opened several tabs and then closed one, all tabs were closed. I’m back to square one.
“How can I troubleshoot this issue and make Microsoft Edge close tabs one by one — not all tabs at once?”
