Lately, by way of instance, I set up the hottest Windows 10 technical trailer and instantly started experiencing issues using the Edge browser.

Sound-related Troubles

Before I get into discussing a few of the general techniques which you could use to repair the browser, then I wished to devote just a bit of time discussing the noise matter. The cause of this is that Microsoft has introduced several new features associated with audio, and when not correctly configured, those attributes may be the origin of sound-related issues.

What exactly are these new features? Well, Microsoft has provided us the capability to mute audio for browser tabs. This is a feature that is new that is wonderful. After all, nobody likes listening to the audio of an advertisement being played another browser while they’re attempting to see a movie or listen to the audio. As good as this new attribute is, nevertheless, it’s not hard to accidentally scatter a browser, thereby creating the illusion that the noise has ceased functioning.

Arrgh!!! My best Windows 10 pet peeves — and everything to do about these
Muting (or unmuting) a browser is simple. Just click the tab on the peak of the browser window. As you can see in the figure below, the menu includes a choice to mute the browser.

It’s worth noting that the Mute Tab alternative really isn’t the only setting which may cause the browser to stop playing audio. Audio may also be affected by the mixer being configured.

As you’re undoubtedly aware, Windows 10 shows a solid icon from the system tray, found in the bottom right corner of this display. Clicking this icon lets you pick the playback apparatus, and also to alter the audio playback volume, as shown in the next phase.

Right-clicking on this exact same icon provides a collection of menu choices, among which is the quantity mixer. When you start the mixer, then the operating system exhibits audio controls for many diverse programs, such as Edge. The issue is, nevertheless, the mixer controller might not be wholly dependable. Allow me to show you what I mean.

If you have a peek at the following figure, you may observe I have the audio mixer available and that it includes an icon to your Edge browser. You’ll also observe that the Edge icon cites Oasis of the Seas. The dilemma is that the title recorded on the browser icon identifies a YouTube movie that I watched about an hour prior to shooting the screen capture. I do not have YouTube available in almost any of my browser tabs, and the audio mixer still references a particular YouTube video.

If you would like to obtain better control over the browser’s audio, click the audio icon and then select the Open Sound Settings alternative. This may open Settings and take you to a screen comprising numerous audio relevant settings. If your audio problems aren’t particular to Edge, then you may start the troubleshooting procedure by clicking on the Troubleshoot button, shown in the figure below. If the issue is particular to Edge, then click the App Volume and Apparatus Preferences alternative instead.

The App Volume and Apparatus Preferences screen lets you set the audio input and output on an application by application basis. You could even set the quantity for individual programs, such as Edge since you can see from another figure.

General Edge browser Problems

I’ve spent quite a lot of time discussing how it is possible to diagnose and fix sound issues inside the Edge browser, however, imagine if these fixes do not work or what if you’re experiencing a different sort of browser issue?

Oftentimes, it’s simple to repair the issue. Before I show you the way it is done, nevertheless, be certain you have installed the latest updates for Windows. The techniques I am going to show you’re certain to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

So with this said, click Settings, then click on Programs. Whenever you do, you’ll discover that the listing of programs now includes an entry for Microsoft Edge, as shown in the figure below. Click Microsoft Edge, Then Click the Advanced Options link.

Now, Windows will show a settings display for Microsoft Edge. Initially, these settings probably will not seem all that useful. But not all the configurations fit on the display (not on my pc ), which means you’ll have to scroll towards the bottom of the window. Below you’ll see options to fix and then refresh your browser, as shown in the next phase.

I advise that you attempt to fix Edge before resetting it. The fix is a comparatively benign purpose, whereas the Reset option can cause information loss.

When that occurs, you may attempt to solve the problem through respective browser preferences, or you could fix, or perhaps reset the browser.
