Is anyone else having an issue recently where their “startup page” in Edge is not-working?
If you go to Menu (…) > Settings > “Start, home, and new tabs” there is a heading titled “When Microsoft Edge starts” and under that is a setting labelled “Open these pages:”. I have set the Google UK URL there to open when I launch Edge.
However recently on both of my laptops, this has stopped working. Both run Windows 10 21H2, with Edge (Stable Channel), version 96.0.1054.43.
Now, whenever I open Edge, it disregards whatever I set as my “startup page”, and just opens to the “New Tab Page” instead. (The “Home button” URL setting, however, is still working fine).
I did some troubleshooting on one of my laptops, and found the only-thing that would-work was to create a new profile, which is not ideal as then all settings (such as per-site permissions and zoom-levels) get lost.
Is this happening to anyone else? I’ve only been able to find some people posting on the “Ask Woody” site about this so-far, but nowhere else…
