Microsoft Edge, the replacement for Internet Explorer browser in Windows 10, is relatively new compared to popular third-party browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera. Because of this reason, the new web browser from Microsoft lacks several features and options.
Microsoft has been adding new features and settings to Edge with each major update to Windows 10. The browser has recently got support for extensions, and Microsoft has also announced at BUILD event that the Edge will get better web app support when Windows 10 anniversary update is released later this year.
While Microsoft has been doing a great job with Edge, the built-in browser lacks many basic settings and options. For instance, the Edge browser is still missing a browser reset option, meaning you can’t easily reset the Edge browser.
