Steps to reproduce

  1. Open any SharePoint 2013/2016 site / site collection.
  2. Open a document library.
  3. Select “Library” tab to drop Library ribbon.
  4. Select “Open with Explorer” icon to show explorer view of files in document library.

Unable to select “Open with Explorer” icon because it is disabled. Is Edge not a Microsoft product as is SharePoint? Why is there a browser developed and deployed that does not function through SharePoint flawlessly? Is the cloud not the way you want to progress?
