    [SOLVED] Does accumulated browser history/cache actually slow down a browser at all?

    I'm on Microsoft edge. I know clearing history can help protect your information and refresh some pages that are having issues loading, but other than that do you really ever need to clear browser cache/history? Does browser history itself take up space/resources somehow? Say for example over...

    Question Edge always closes unexpectedly, even when I close it down manually ?

    This isn't a huge issue, but it is supper irritating. For one, my Asus Strix B550I is set to S4+S5 so when it shuts down, it shuts EVERYTHING down. No power to usb's, no power to anything but the power button. Not sure if that's causing this, but everytime I shut down my PC, the next time I...

    [SOLVED] Microsoft Edge used to have a small icon on right of task bar, how to re-enable

    [SOLVED] Why is Edge showing up as a blank icon on my taskbar when I run it?

    No other app does this: Edge shows up as a blank white paper icon when I run it. On the desktop and on the start menu, it has an icon, even pinning it to the taskbar shows it having an icon, but when I run it, a new icon appears (the blank page) and I can't seem to fix it! I have tried...

    Question Edge opens multiple times a second in safe mode, fresh OS, non-touchscreen

    Hey everyone, I am stumped. I have a laptop that keeps opening Microsoft Edge multiple times per second at semi-random intervals. So fast you cannot access anything else; about 2-10 times a second (could even be seizure inducing). Here's what I've tried and know: It still happens in Safe...

    [SOLVED] Edge is the only browser that works, any other does not.

    Greetings. So a little bit of history: When I first built this PC and installed Windows 10, I installed Chrome. It did not work even though Edge did. I have tried tinkering with it but I just decided to download Fire Fox and that worked. Then everything went well until one day where Fire Fox...
