Steps to reproduce

Click on the input element to trigger the datepicker. In Edge in will open on the min value, in this case 1900-01-01

For a user’s age years 1900-2000 would be reasonable min-max values, but with Edge’s default behavior if you’re 18, you have to scroll 100 years.

Other browsers behavior is the opposite.

Chrome - Opens at the the most recent month allowed by max
iOS Safari - Opens at today, allows out of bound selections, but is marked as ::invalid
FF - Opens at today, out of bound selections greyed out

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. The date picker is designed to show the min value as a starting point, but also shows the max value immediately above the min value. In your code sample, one can click the input and look up to see the year 2000 and scroll up to see the 1990’s (screenshot attached).

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
