Steps to reproduce

The web notification tester worked fine in Microsoft Edge 38.14393.1066.0. But, it doesn’t work the same in the new version 40.15063. When notification is clicked, the window doesn’t open. It used to be in the earlier version.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We find that the repro does work as expected, but if you already have showing, then it will seem like nothing happens. However, if you switch to a different tab and then click the notification, it does return you to the tab for the site. You may want to try a notification which loads a different site for a clearer repro.

      Please let us know if you have new information for us to consider.

    • Hello,

      My mistake, I missed the most important part of the title: “minimized” window.

      I will look into this further.
