    • Anyone found a work-around for this yet? Our program’s help URL ends with a # + ID number to identify which page to open - anyone using Edge is sent to the home page because the # and anything after are removed.

    • Hi, any news on this issue?

    • I would also like to have this issue fixed or at least a valid workaround.
      The use case is same as Casey S. describes it.
