Dear Brian:


When I had Chrome as my default browser, the minute I opened it my home page would pop up right away.  When I get into Microsoft Edge I find it doesn’t.  Instead, the address bar pops up.  I got into Settings, found Appearance in the Treeview, checked the Show Home page button.  I indicated I wanted Facebook to be my home page and saved the Setting, but Facebook is not popping up when I start up Edge after having closed it out.

Interesting.  I never run practically any program with the screen other than maximized.  I'll have things like File Explorer or Search Everything not maximized, but web browsers are always maximized.

When I did a "restore down" it did cause a "hamburger stack" menu button to appear so that you can get to the other tabs besides profile.

What's even more interesting is this behavior is not present in Edge Dev build, which is what I generally use.  All Settings tabs stay visible even when not maximized.  I wonder if the behavior is going to be changing in production Edge in the coming months?
