I want to launch Edge in the background without it showing up a window to the user. For Chrome it would be

chrome.exe --app="www.google.com"

and a silent window would be

chrome.exe --silent-launch="www.google.com"

So how would microsoft-edge: "www.google.com" have to be changed to do the same thing?

    What is possible with Chrome, which is a Win32 application, is not typically possible with a UWP application like Edge. What exactly makes you think Edge supports a silent launch? – Ramhound Nov 28 '18 at 15:21
  • I am not sure it does and I can't seem to locate any launch parameters besides dev-tools in the documentation. – interestedparty Nov 28 '18 at 16:17
  • Microsoft Edge is already running in the background : Settings > Privacy > Background apps. What do you want more? – harrymc Nov 28 '18 at 18:00
  • I want to launch a page without it appearing on screen. – interestedparty Nov 29 '18 at 18:45
