    Using MSE site with Microsoft Edge browser

    Using MSE site with Microsoft Edge browser 8th Feb 18 at 2:42 PM
    I am using Microsoft edge browser on my windows 10 dell laptop. No problems usually and I find that websites don't hang when I am using edge whereas they were when I was running google chrome or internet explorer.

    Today for some reason the MSE site will not work using Microsoft edge and asks me to download internet explorer or google chrome due to me using an outdated browser. It works ok on internet explorer but I don't want to use two separate browsers and everything else I use works fine with Edge. Any ideas as to why this should be an issue? It worked fine up until yesterday but my laptop performed some updates yesterday so I am guessing this is something to do with it.

    Whilst in Edge, press F12 to bring up developer options
    Choose the "emulation" tab

    Make sure everything in there is set to default.
    Browser profile = desktop
    User agent string = Microsoft Edge
