1. Click the Hub icon on the upper right.


2. You have now a new panel on the right side of the screen.

  1. My Edge Browser at times close when I have multiple windows open and I close just one of them. The whole application closes. I’ve done your fix and cleared the history and cache. Maybe that will be fix things. I really like the browser and am using it exclusively having not downloaded Chrome after I upgraded to Windows 10. There is definitely some improvements and tweaks to be made but it is good as an initial release. I guess I don’t have to download Adobe Flash since those videos are playing in this browser. Anyhow just wanted to say thank you for the tip.
