    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. Currently, you need to enable Cortana and then you can select text on a webpage and right-click it and choose Ask Cortana.

      If you would prefer a Search Bing option, please feel welcome to submit your request at http://uservoice.microsoftedge.com where other developers can up-vote your suggestion.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team

    • I find that even ask cortana is not available if using InPrivate mode.

      For all other broswers, even internet explorer, the right click context search works even in InPrivate mode.
