  1. Edge Extensions dont work for me says

    I bet it is because i am in a domain, I still cannot figure this out, but each edge extension only creates an empty folder which does not help me, how can I extract the exe into a folder since Windows explorer obviously cant do it for me.

  2. Edge Extensions dont work for me says

    This does not work for me, Everytime I click the exe files for the extensions, an empty folder is created with the name of the extension. The FOLDERS are empty, so when I click to load an extension and click on the folder, it says the extension could not be loaded. EMPTY Folders are being created I have tried to re- download the extensions again, but still they only create empty folders. HELP
