Steps to reproduce

Microsoft Edge is the ONLY browser I know incapable of recovering after having a completely unrelated game go fullscreen. Happens 9 times out of 10; you go into fullscreen mode, come back and Edge will not allow you to click ANYTHING. AT ALL. You cannot even right click and close window from the taskbar as the options don’t even come up, forcing you to have to kill the process with Task Manager.

While I’m here, I’ll also mention that Skype does this, too, and another problem (WITH EDGE, might I bloody add) Is that when viewing films or YouTube videos (in fullscreen, SERIOUSLY WHAT IS IT’S PROBLEM WITH FULLSCREEN?!), the top of the screen containing the search bar disappears (which you can usually achieve by pressing F8) and won’t recover until you close Edge and open it back up.

In other words, Edge is ridiculously broken, and it’s getting hilariously tiresome.
