  • Why was it set to "Won’t fix"? It is an important handling function.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. This would require updates to Desktop Positioner, and while it would be a nice feature, we need to focus our current resources on other priorities. We do not yet plan to release a fix for this problem, but we are considering a solution for a future build.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
