Some Edge browser problems encountered by Windows 10 users may be avoided by switching to Internet Explorer 11.
A Windows 10 upgrade or a new purchase comes with both MS Edge and IE 11 installed and ready to use. MS Edge is the factory default setting.
Drake's review of MS Edge revealed problems with response time, browser time-outs, and incompatibility when using the Drake e-Training Center. The problems encountered are not specific to Drake software, but are associated with the Edge browser in general.
Drake recommends that you change your Windows 10 default browser from Edge to IE 11 or to another suitable browser.
To change your Windows 10 default browser to IE 11, follow the steps below.
- Right-click the Windows icon (lower-left corner of your screen, on the task bar), and select Search from the drop menu:
- Enter control panel in the Search the web and Windows field. The system returns Best match results. Click Control Panel to see the available settings.
- On Control Panel, click Network and Internet to see more options.
- From the left-hand options list, click Programs to display program options, and then click Set your default programs for a list of programs.
- Within the list of programs, locate and click Internet Explorer to display IE specifications and settings. Choose Set this program as default and click OK to change your browser default from Edge to Internet Explorer.
- Close the Control Panel.
