Questions tagged [microsoft-edge]

Microsoft Edge is an integral part of the Windows 11 operating system, replacing Internet Explorer as default browser on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 11, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and Series S. However on Windows Server 2016 Internet Explorer 11 was the default browser, and once again on Windows Server 2019. They are considered optional components and can be removed, leaving the Server without a Browser.
