- Long-standing Basic Edge/NVDA Issue
Re: Long-standing Basic Edge/NVDA Issue

I just tried opening the system menu in Edge then either restoring, maximizing (with x or arrowing and enter) and escaping, and it worked fine when I closed the menu when I was using NVDA 2020.4beta4. It did crash, as you describe when using NVDA 2020.3. We have made some improvements in 2020.4, so I'd recommend trying NVDA 2020.4 beta 4: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2020-4beta4/
Do please let us know if the issue is fixed or continues with that version.
Which edge are you using is it the old one or the new one? If it
is the old one I would replace it with the new one from Microsoft.
Just tried bringing up the menu to maximize etc there is no
problems on any of the tabs I try it on.
usually when you bring up the menu you mentioned you locate the
one you want then press the enter key on it. So then is it when
you press the escape key to close that menu then edge dies?
I thought when I first looked it was more to do with closing
tabs. I did bring up that menu you mentioned did not pick one then
chose close then the program shut as in edge.

I am using Windows 10
with the last stable version of NVDA, and I have been having
the following issue for several months now. When on a web
page, if I want to confirm that it is maximized with
“alt+space”, and close the system menu with “escape”, NVDA
won’t read the page. I know that it has crashed because it
won’t read either when I return to the desk top. NVDA will
crash even if I only have 1 Edge window open. Any
