Steps to reproduce

As I see Edge is not supported on server 2016 as it is LTSB
Can it be used (with WebDriver) on Nano as it is a CBB version?

Thank you

      Changed Status to “By design”

    • Unfortunately not, Edge is not available on server 2016 at all.  If you want to use Edge you must use a Win 10 Desktop install of some kind.

      All the best,
      The MS Edge Team

    • If Firefox have LTSB version, I believe that Microsoft can manage to make an Edge LTSB version as well…

    • I agree with illy M.

      You really need to push Edge every bit you can. It’s mind-boggling why on a Microsoft product, the latest browser is not available even as an option. There’s absolutely zero ways to get it on a Windows Server 2016 machine. Absurd.

    • I agree! Just noticed myself, as we need to be able to test Edge with an inhouse application, and we need to back-date the system. So, really a RDS server was the only option. Not being able to have EDGE… seriously… words cannot express…

    • Microsoft just announced that Edge browser is coming to iOS and Android, but it’s not yet available on Windows Server. What kind of logic is that?
      If Edge runs on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 shares the Core with Windows 10, Edge browser should be available there as well, it’s really no rocket science.

    • EMET is EOL as of July 2018 because Microsoft feels the EDGE browser removes the need. EDGE browser isn’t supported/won’t run on Windows Server 2016. What is the appropriate solution for Citrix-type shared desktop solutions? As far as I can tell, there is none.

    • This is really pity.
      Microsoft has with Windows 10 the vision of continue your work on any device, but missing Edge on Windows Server 2016 - even not offering a CBB Version where this could be possible is very bad.

    • So disappointed… I love using my Edge browser and now I have to resort to the competition with Firefox or Chrome. Now my Favourites won’t carry over and it makes it a pain to recreate separate links to resources at each server. Microsoft stop being a follower and be a leader again! If you fall behind you have to push to lead again. I know you’ll find a way to bring Edge to Server 2016… just hope you are listening.

    • So how should Edge be presented through remote desktop services?
