Win10 Edge - Test in Browser - Post...

I've been trying to add MS Edge to my "Test with Browser" list but cannot seem to make the executable work in CoffeeCup HTML Editor.
I located the Edge.exe file deep in C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe but cannot register it as a browser in CoffeeCup HTML Editor.
Had no difficulty registering Chrome or Firefox. Why is MS Edge proving to be difficult and non-responsive?
Suggestions?

I guess you'll have to ask Bill Gates. It's a Windows thing. But if you select Edge as your default browser, it will appear in the Editor.

I think someone found a workaround for this, but I don't remember it off the top of my head. Someone else here might know.

I know this is an old topic, but I found that choosing edge as the default browser did not solve the problem. My default browser is set to firefox. The editor will preview the page in IE11.

I have found a solution to using Edge with the editor. The problem is detailed here and provides a simple solution. http://www.edgemanage.emmet-gray.com/Ar … aunch.html . Works perfectly.

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

That's interesting. I uninstalled Edge Launch the other day: I find that CoffeeCup's The HTML Editor will now accept my latest version of MS Edge [Version 83.0.478.37 (Official build) (64-bit)] as an additional browser in the normal way.

On my pc it's at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe

Hello Frank,

Thanks for sharing that. I have the "Legacy" version of Edge for testing, not the new Chrome based Edge.

Still don't know why the HTML Editor has Internet Explorer as the Internal Preview. Ancient history.

Ha good question. Seems like a no brainer to switch that to Chrome or Firefox lol...
