  1. Improve high-contrast support in Chromium-based Microsoft Edge

    I see that in v81.0.366.0 of Chromium Edge the high-contrast mode support is enabled by default. There are a few bugs in it, which I would like to report:


    1. The icon with the 3 vertical dots for the "Actions Menu" button for each video (e.g. on the YouTube home page) is missing, making the button practically invisible when using a high-contrast black theme. This is not the case with the old/legacy/EdgeHTML Microsoft Edge.


    2. The icons for buttons such as "Like", "Dislike", "Share", "Save", etc. (located under a playing video) are missing, making the buttons practically invisible when using a high-contrast…

  2. Microsoft Edge and Photos on Linux

    I understand that making a DEB Package is downright frustrating and discouraging , when big companies are told about Linux , they go straight to making DEB Packages but there are very easy ways to port to Linux .

    If you just create a working Tarball made inside a Linux Environment and send it to the major Repository Maintainers , they can do the rest .

    The Major Repository Maintainers in the Linux World are openSUSE , Arch , Red Hat Enterprise , Linux Mint , Mageia , Debian , Solus and Ubuntu .

    If you want to reach out…

  3. Edge needs to have customizable 'new tabs' - This is absolutely ridiculous

    Are we really living in a world where a non-bloated basic-functioning internet browser DOES NOT EXIST?

    I was enjoying my first day on Edge until I realized I can't set what page my new tabs go to. Seriously? This is day-one stuff.

  4. Cortana please answer with help when a mental health red flag is typed in????

    If a mental health or suicide phrase is typed in, could Cortana flag it or suggest helpful resources like a public service? For example, when I typed in, "Cortana Im losing my mind" the first results were really negative including the phrase "kill ****self". Instead, Cortana could show mental and suicide prevention resources. Thank you.

  5. provide hotkey for immersive reader view in Edge

    It would be really helpful to have a hotkey to bring up the immersive reader view in the new Microsoft Edge. I will use this feature a lot and want to be able to get to it as quickly as possible when using the keyboard with a screen reader..

  6. Old look for Edge

    Dear Microsoft,
    The new look of Edge Browser is horrible. If I would want it look like Chrome I would choose Chrome Browser. I don't mind about the Chrome engine and I think it's a good idea but please reconsider the look or at least add the choice for users how they want it to look. I prefer this smooth old look with straight lines and squares not round lines which looks totally like Chrome. You totally killed it by changing its layout.

  7. Dark Webpages and all content dark with lighter color fonts and characters

    For the Love of Humans with limited visual acuity, please please, spare us the agony of staring at glaring white background webpages in Edge, glaring white pages in Word, even glaring white backgounds in google Play store, I remember Dark Black Windows 8.1 Mobile, and even Windows 10 all dark,which was so awesome, especially for someone like me, who has acuity restrictions and work late hours, the so called night shift owls like us love colors gentle, but easy to discern, in Chrome,VEdge I can download extensions, but that is the longer way round just give us a universal Dark…

  8. Please add a Hotkey to Quickly access Favorites Menu.

    Please add alt+A functionality, to quickly access the "Favorites" menu, as in Internet Explorer. As a screen reader and primarily keyboard user, every keystroke matters. Even one or two additional keystrokes make a workflow more cumbersome.

  9. Narrator is not conveying the password & Email fields as editable when focused in Microsoft Edge

    Hey Microsoft, I would like to share my piece of feedback on an issue that is observed in Microsoft Edge while using Narrator.
    On tabbing to password & Email edit fields i.e. which are marked as type=”password” and type=”email” in underlying HTML, I have observe Narrator is not announcing ‘edit’ instead only announces the label of the field.
    For example, when ‘New password’ edit field receives the focus Narrator announces it as ‘New password’ or ‘New password end of line’ at times and this doesn’t convey users the field as editable. Same behavior is experienced with Email edit fields also. …

  10. Narrator no longer reads `role=math` since 1809

    In Windows 10 version 1803, Narrator could read <span role=math aria-label="message m">???</span> as "message m". In Windows 10 version 1809, it seems that Narrator completely ignores this span element.

  13. Allow setting for Surface pen so that if I want to use it to write in web browser I can write without having to hold the button down.

    If I want to write on something within the browser (like to grade an online assignment), I have to hold the button down, since the default pen function is to use it to scroll. Can there be an option where we decide which function (scroll or write) is the default? It's almost impossible to write or draw while holding down the button.

  15. Select specific spot to read in edge

    Users should be able to highlight any text in Edge and have it read to them at that spot and not have to start at the beginning each time.

  16. Narrator + Edge in Win 1809 seems unable to cope with websites in different languages

    When browsing the web on Edge with Narrator on Win 1809, and one navigates on a page authored in any other language than the one set for Narrator's synthesizer, Narrator will not switch to the correct language synthesizer but will attempt to pronounce the content in the default synthesizer, which will make the content unintelligible. This seems a rather basic feature. Am I missing a setting, or something, to make it work? NVDA, for instance, switches between languages smoothly as one browses through multilingual content with the correct lang attributes set.

  17. Narrator in browsers

    Hey, I'm using Windows narrator and the Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browser. So when I start the browser and navigate to the address bar or the search bar or anywhere and want to type anything it says "unavailable" every time I want to type a character, so I can't type anything. Why's that and what can I do against this?

  19. Return to Windows Live Mail

    Windows 10 deleted Windows Live Mail and downloaded something that never works and has no features. It eats up your hard drive with updates and stops working at will. The tech that downloaded it . Took seven hours trying to figure it out. and never did. Hardly spoke English! Microsoft email is a joke! Their flash player leaves a lot to be desired as well. My next computer will be an APPLE!!! So much better and it works!
