Steps to reproduce

How to reproduce:

  1. Navigate to a website
  2. click on “Make a Web Note”
  3. click on the ‘clip’ icon and drag to make a screenshot
  4. press the ‘ESCAPE’ key twice

What happens:

Edge exits note mode but leaves the screen with a screenshot of the previous page (you can see file:/… in the url) instead of getting back to the previous page.

Also, pressing back in the browser returns to the page that was opened before clicking on "Make a Web Note": the ‘file:/…’ pointing to the note screenshot actually replaces the website that was opened when pressing “Make a Note” in the browser nav history.

Windows version:
10.0.14393 insider build (x64)

Edge version:
Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 14.14393
