Windows 10 Edge browser status

Hi, Given that the Edge browser supports extensions now, when will there be a Norton Family extension for Edge? If one is not forthcoming soon, I was wondering if someone can give us the benefit of their experience regarding the best way to disable the Edge browser? Thanks

Hi dbdan22,

Please check the doc link below for enabling IE 11 and making it the default browser in the OS.

We currently don’t support Edge extensions yet.  The team is investigating on this.

Thanks

This is a serious gap, since there is no way to remove or disable Edge within Windows 10.  Smart kids figure that out very quickly...

Re: Windows 10 Edge browser status

Hi,

I've just acquired Norton Family to use with Windows 10 and Edge. Using another browsers is not a solution. As previosuly stated any kid can find easliy the way to bypass Norton Family using Edge, instead of the default browser. 

So, have Norton planned anything to solve this issue soon?

Re: Windows 10 Edge browser status

I'll have to agree with the others.  The Norton Family product is my primary reason for keeping the entire security suite.  Now that all of our computers are on Windows 10, this piece of the product is largely useless.  If not fixed by my next renewal, I'll have to look at other security choices.

Re: Windows 10 Edge browser status

Hi,

For how long will you still give the solution of change the default browser? This is not a solution.

I'm still in the period in which I can withdraw my subscription and this what I'm going to do...
