Coolprash is right -- change browsers.

When I had to adapt to Win10 on my work computer (I'm Linux at home), I really tried for a very long time to make Edge usable. I explored settings, add-ons, extensions, but I finally just gave up. It is just a poor implementation of software trying to perform a task that hundreds of other browsers do better. I'm sure Microsoft had a reason (probably to tie the browser and it's results more tightly into Microsoft offerings), but its a kludge to the end. It's worse than the old IE it replaced and that's saying something. It's dying anyway as Microsoft is changing it in the future.

I have the following installed on both Windows and Linux machines in the order of use:
Firefox -- 80-90% of the time
Chrome -- 10 - 20%
Opera -- exploration of other ideas as these guys forge their own path

Over the years, I also 'played' with probably twenty other browsers that all were supposedly 'tweaked' one way or another to set them apart. Not worth the learning curve for the most part. All gone now.
