  1. Unable to close tabs or select anything in the tabs / URL bars in the new Microsoft Edge...


    The new Microsoft Edge browser just became available to Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip Ahead ring. I'm experiencing an issue where I'm unable to properly navigate the entirety of the tabs or URL bars. Some items can be highlighted while other can't, but none of them can be actually be selected by pressing 'A'. Because of this I'm unable to use the URL to type in a web address, visit browser settings or even close tabs or create new ones. So now I've got all these tabs open after it synced all my data and plugins across and I've got no way of closing them.

    Hey Michael! What is happening is, it sounds like your Edge is starting on the most recently-opened tab. Often, on a site which probably would give a virus on the computer itself (one of those that pop open a specific window and refuse to close, or tell
    you to click something to get rid of a virus but it turns out to be a virus itself) these will open the tab, and then when closing Edge, the next time you open it, that same tab is already there.

    There are a couple of things you can do. Try opening your browser on your Xbox, then on your controller, press the "view" button (this looks like two interlocking squares to the left of the Xbox Logo.) This will open the "new tab" and "address bar" window.
    From here you should be able to close existing tabs by highlighting the tab you wish to close, pressing menu, and choosing "Close Tab. Then you will start fresh with a new tab.

    If that doesn't work, you can also search for any item in the game store, then scroll all the way to the right and choose "Web Results." This will force Edge to re-open on a new tab showing Bing Search results, and the "bad" tab will be in the background.
    Now you SHOULD be able to use the "view button method" listed above to close the offending tabs.

    Oh, and don't worry about Viruses - that won't happen with Xbox One, so no virus-scan program is required.

    Let me know!
