Use of Microsoft Edge RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, Microsoft Edge browser cannot be run by the built-in Administrator user (and I think that makes a few help programs fail!).

    So as advised, I created another user (with admin privileges) but the Edge program does not appear in the Start Menu > All Apps. Typing Edge into Search brings no results.

    How do you run Edge in 2016 TP3?


    I have just installed the evaluation using the ISO in the "with containers" download and this has now worked fine. I shall revisit my ISO's...

    Enable the Edge run in built-in administrator account has the high security risk and it is not enabled by default, you can refer the following article to enable it.
