How to configure Expression Web to preview your web pages with Microsoft Edge

Filed under: Expression Web,Microsoft Edge,Windows 10 — spiderwebwoman at 2:18 pm on Sunday, August 30, 2015

With the launch of Windows 10 came a new browser, Microsoft Edge. As every web designer/developer knows, you should preview your web pages in as many browsers as you can. However, Microsoft didn’t make it possible to add Microsoft Edge to the browser list in Expression Web. The searching I did said that the executable was at C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe but adding that to the browser list didn’t work. I also found an executable at GitHub but that didn’t work either. I reached out to the Microsoft MVPs on Facebook to see if someone could look at the code of the exe on Github and figure out why it wasn’t working. I heard back from David Ching – he had downloaded the code, found the problem, and fixed it. Thank you David!

I have zipped the file and and made it available for download from my web site. All you need to do is unzip the file and then add MicrosoftEdgeLauncher.exe to the list of of browsers you use in Expression Web.

Thanks for this ZIP file. If I may add a clarification…

One needs to unzip the MicrosoftEdgeLauncher.exe, then put that program in a folder. (I put mine into the folder I created at C:\Program Files\Edge\ ).

When you add it to your list of browsers in Expression Web, you need to Edit Browser List and insert the full path on the line “Command”. Thus, I have an entry of C:\Program Files\Edge\MicrosoftEdgeLauncher.exe.

This works for me in Windows 10 and Expression Web 4.
