    • If this is a duplicate, can you please mention the issue that this a duplicate of ?
      I’m facing the exact same issue in the same build.

    • Microsoft marked both as duplicates: but you can find them both here:

      Original here: - many people still have issues with this problem. Microsoft, are you monitoring this??

    • MSFT - Can you please reopen this ? The original is marked as closed, but the problem still persists.

    • Any updates to this Microsoft?

    • I’m seeing this issue as well. What is the official word from Microsoft on this issue.

    • On the website I was building, I was having the same issue when trying to take user to a complete URL (eg, “”). The issue was not there when the URL specified was relative (eg, “…/Files/Default.aspx”). I designed the approach where instead of taking user directly to the fully qualified URL, I am now talking user to an internal page having desired dimensions (using, and then sending user to the desired destination (external website link) using Response.Redirect. This is working out gracefully without any issues.

      It almost seems as if Edge was taking a fully qualified URL as a request to open a new browser window as done using the Edge menu.

      Sharing this workaround, if there is still a need for this solution.

    • It has been marked as “Fixed, not yet flighted” since Mar 22, 2016. I works now for me (and has been doing so for a long time. So maybe it is time to change the status to "Released"?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We confirmed the problem, and implemented a solution on a later build of Edge. We are resolving this issue as a duplicate of an existing internal bug report. We look forward to additional feedback you may have on how we can improve Microsoft Edge.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team

    • In my case, it’s not a case of opening a child window from the parent. After I resize the Edge window height and width to my liking, it continues to grow in size an every launch of the app. It never reaches maximized state but appears to finally stop at some pre-determined window size. Unfortunately, that size is much too large to have multiple windows open on a 27-inch 1080p monitor. This issue is 100% reproducible.
