Steps to reproduce

When I go to: https://portal.azure.com
I get the message "The Azure portal doesn’t support your Browser". I get a similar message when I sign in to visual studio on-line.

I am running:
Microsoft Edge 41.16299.15.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 16.16299

When I follow the link for supported browsers Edge is listed as supported.

It is sad that I have to run Chrome in order to use Microsoft web sites.

I have seen web sites and youtube videos that address the issue by running powershell scripts as administrator to uninstall and re-install Edge. Do you really want your customers to have to do that?

  • Hi Steve,

    This would definitely be a bug and not what we want our customers to experience.  I am not sure why you are getting that message.  I will investigate would could be causing this issue.

    Can you tell me the extended version of Windows 10 you are using?  Win +S and type ‘winver’ and hit enter.  Thank you for providing the Edge Versions.

    Appreciate you reporting this,

    Steve K

  • Thanks! It’s strange that you have the MSIE 9 token in your UA… that’s likely why sites are thinking that your browser is old/unsupported. Let me get this bug over to one of our devs. He should be able to point you to a few potential fixes. 

  • Would it be possible for you to dump a few of your registry keys for us to look at?

    1. From Start > Run, type regedit2. In the navigation bar at the top, enter Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent and press Enter
    2. Right click on the highlighted key and press “Export”
    3. Save the key to disk
    4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent
    5. Attach both registry keys to this bug

    Please note that it’s possible that only one of the above keys will exist. Thanks!

  • There is no folder in regedit under HKCU for “User Agent” just a string value:

    User Agent REG_SZ
    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Win32)

    In case it matters… My computer started as Windows 8.0 and was upgraded as new versions came out. I think I am on the latest version of Windows 10.

  • First: The “Start > Run” terminology sounds like a description for someone running Windows 7. There is no start menu, there is no “run” listed anywhere in the windows 10 menus. If I press the button combo “widows r” I get a run command window… which is what you were probably looking for.
    Second: From the Run" dialog, if I type the command "regedit2", I get the message "Windows cannot find 'regedit2’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
    Having some windows experience I know that I can type “regedit” and get to the registry editor.
