Thanks for the info. It's way over BASIC knowledge...

... a way to keep Microsoft Edge from opening to the start page? I have it set to continue last session, but it always opens to a new Google tab and immediately switches to it. I haven't found a way to disable that, but I must be overlooking something.
(Well, maybe not. Many months ago I noticed a bug where if I left Edge running, sometimes when I did something I never pinpointed in other windows (not Edge) a new Google tab would activate in Edge. A few times I found 5 or six of the buggers open without me having been in Edge. MS is failing to impress, although they seem to have fixed that bug, and you can finally use an extension to open a new tab to the front, thankfully.)
I just switched to Brave -- I'm not kidding. Right after I read your post, I switched.
I switched for two reasons.
1) Brave still has [x] on each tab so you can quickly close a browser tab (firefox has removed that).
2) Brave still has arrows on scrollbar. FireFox just removed that.
See this snapshot for those features in Brave. https://i.stack.imgur.com/5JfNl.png[^]
I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 desktop. Also, Brave has a sync feature (allows to share history and bookmarks across devices) so I'm happy with that too.
I'm now running it on my MOtorola G7 also.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Thanks. Unfortunately, Edge hates me and it doesn't work as it should for me.
I created a shortcut on my desktop and used that for the link. When I double-clicked it, Edge opened up. All the old tabs were there, and the 'about::blank' page also got added to the tabs. Then Edge opened me up to a bare google search page! It figures you will always want to search for something when you first open it, but that's not what I want! I haven't been able to find a place to disable that 'feature.'
I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks that setting should do exactly what I want. But that's what's been set for the last however long. It always opens to a Google tab instead of whatever I last viewed, although the last used tabs are there.
Indeed, it looks so easy, I am astonished that someone made it that simple. Diving deeper here is not my cup of tea , I must admit ... except a typical thought that it needs some sort of reset/restore/reinstall ... BR
Thanks. The installer path has changed, but I worked that out. After playing with it, I finally figured out the problem - it was an extension the entire time! At least I figured it out, but I still feel a tad foolish for posting!

I just downloaded the 2022 preview of Visual Studio and noticed it installed in the Program Files folder, not the Program Files (x86) folder like all earlier versions. So this must be the first native 64 bit version of VS. Nice! What took you so long MS?
