Steps to reproduce

  1. Opening new tab randomly creates this blank grey bar and stick to the top. Does not display context menu when right clicked. When switching to existing tabs, they will exhibit the same blank top grey bar
  2. The only way to clear it out is to open a new tab
  3. Still will randomly create another bar later on

    Changed Status from “Confirmed” to “Not reproducible”

  • Same problem, popping out on my desktop, laptop and surface pro tablet.

  • I have had this for a long time now is really… really irritating and I like edge as a browser its just this that ruins it

  • Changed Status from “Not reproducible”

  • Well too bad that these folks marked this bug as Not reproducible with so many instances of it… I keep opening tabs to clear them out all the time.

  • Thanks for your report of this issue.  Fix is in the pipeline for an upcoming release.

  • I have the same issue here. However, once it is active, it seems that the grey bar is present on all my opened tabs. Then, when I close the tab, the bar “may” disappear.

  • I am able to reproduce for example just by creating a 4th tab to go to LinkedIn.com. The first time I have a grey bar. I close the tab, the grey bar may disappears in all tabs (or not). Then the second time I go to LinkedIn.com the bar does not appear or disappears if it was there. I did it a few times in a row…

  • Same problem - The large grey bar appeared on the top of Edge. It is more than annoying and I am ready to switch to another browser unless there is a solution.

  • Please fix this "Gray Bar " issue in Edge. I used Edge for the longest time until one of the updates , I think it was the last big one caused it to appear. I now use Google Chrome.

  • Has the Gray Bar issue been resolved? Most annoying!

  • This problem just started today. Beyond annoying. Is there anyway to get rid of the gray bar?

  • The gray bar has disappeared from my screen. It is just gone. Thank you, Microsoft, if you have fixed it!

  • Same issue just happened on my system this morning So whatever this bug is it’s not “fixed” I’m thoroughly patched and up tp date. Tried reboot that didn’t clear it and based on this thread doesn’t look like Microsoft has a clue

    OHH I found it . Next to the + in header you get an up or down arrow V that controls whether the “preview” of a age appears in that dead space . Click on arrow and the “grey bar” area goes away .
