Steps to reproduce

On 11/13/2017 sometime after 10 PM, Microsoft Edge hung when I hit the new tab button. I shut down the computer and restarted it, cleared all the history and cache and relaunched Edge at least a dozen times.

It continues to exhibit the following behavior.
Edge seems to open correctly to my start page. (
clicking on anything in the start functions normally.
attempting to access settings functions normally

clicking in the address bar and entering an address and hitting enter or clicking the new tab button seems to do nothing. However after doing this the settings page becomes less responsive, changing the default search engine hangs, and “duplicate tab” stops functioning.
