Re: how do you close the microsoft edge browser?

As long as you only have one tab opened, alt f4 will close the program.  If you have more than one tab opened, alt f4 presents a message you have to respond to.  I don't use Edge but based on other comments, it is similar to the message Firefox presents asking you if you want to close all tabs.  You couldn't close the program with alt f4 because you didn't respond to the message, a message you will see and hear now that you are using the latest Windows 10 accessibility add on.  I don't remember its exact name.

Hi, Chris,

 

Apparently it is. That could be why Microsoft will do away with IE sometime soon. Believe it or not, I was able to close edge with alt F-4 after reading the weather forcast for my area.

I, personally prefer IE, but, I've converted to Chrome, as I hear that even on an up to date system with all security patches, IE's quite insecure in very many respects.

 

Is that altogether true?

I think that Internet Explorer will be around for a year, perhaps two.  Accessibility is improving with Edge but I don't think Microsoft will stop security updates for Internet Explorer until accessibility with Edge is good.  Also, I question whether Edge will have any meaningful advantages over Firefox or Chrome.  Unless you are just curious and want to play with Edge, it is probably a much better idea to use one or both of these other browsers.

Hi, Gene NZ,

 

Thanks very much for your help. I figure it's time I learned how to use edge because I don't know how soon internet explorer will be no more. The written tutorial did help a lot.

 

Thanks again for your help.

Hi

 

the following page might help you. It is the nvda tutorials for other programs page which is found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

When you are on it jump down by headings to the section that says about Microsoft edge, a page come off that and hopefully will help you with it.

Hi,

Ah, you may have multiple tabs open. Try pressing Control+W repeatedly until Edge closes.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Roger,

 

I still can't close the browser. I can't even go to the file menu to close it. I'm heaqring a youtube videoon edge but want to get out of it! This is frustrating! What do I do now?

I tried alt F-4 but it didn't work. I'll give it another try. Maybe I didn't close it correctly.

I've just played with it a bit, but was always able to close it with alt f4 just like any other program.

Hi, everyone,

 

I decided to play with edge a little bit but I had trouble closing the browser. I had to go to the desktop and then shut down. There has to be a way to close it like you do other browsers.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.
