Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

To reproduce: 1. open an Edge screen 2. move the window towards the RHS of the screen 3. open up ‘new tabs’ from the edge browser, until you can only see tabs along the top of the screen - then try and get the Edge browser window back into the centre of the screen?

To ensure it can be reproduced you need show only perhaps 10% of the window on the RHS, if you show more there is a very small area of perhaps 10 pixels which is available to you to drag, but if you show less then there appears to be nothing you can select to drag the window back on?

Expected Results:

There needs to be an area of the LHS of the screen to the left of the tabs which you can click on to ‘drag select’ - I currently can’t spot such an area?

Actual Results:

    • When it happens to you this is a real light bulb moment. I was troubleshooting some code and had several browsers open, each running several tabs. Somehow I must have moved edge to the right and maybe opened another tab I don’t know but all of a sudden, no way to drag the window back.

      You’ve only got two of us highlighting it to you - but trust me when it happens to users they will think ‘how on earth could someone design something so stupid?’

      When it happened to me last night under pressure I certainly was not praising the design of MS edge. I hope someone gives it some thought.
