Edge browser RRS feed

  • Question

  • By default, Edge seems not to be present on Windows Server 2016. Its engine, edgehtml.dll is present in System32. Is there a way to enable the full Edge GUI or at least use a third party app to browse the web using edgehtml.dll ?

  • Hi,

    In recent Windows Server 2016 Technical Previews, you may have noticed that the Windows Server with Desktop Experience installation option included a few additional Windows Client only features such as Microsoft Edge, Windows Store Client, and the Modern Calculator.

    These features were temporarily included to gather additional feedback on their potential uses on Windows Server before shipping our RTM release. 

    In the Windows Server 2016 RTM, Microsoft Edge is replaced with Internet Explorer 11.

    Quote from blog - Appreciating the Windows Server 2016 Desktop Experience:
    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/nanoserver/2016/10/04/appreciating-the-windows-server-2016-desktop-experience/

    I have not found any official document which has described/mentioned the method to enable Edge on released WS 2016 current now.

    Best Regards,
