Microsoft Edge Browser Breaks Internet!

Hi VideoBoxers,

If you haven’t heard by now, Microsoft has recently released Windows 10, a much needed update from their previous OS disaster. Although Windows 10 looks to be a major improvement, there have been some strange decisions from Microsoft. One of these head-scratchers is to make their new browser “Microsoft Edge” the default browsers on Windows 10. When testing with Microsoft Edge we’ve discovered that not only do certain pages not render the same way across all other major browsers but Microsoft decided to remove the ability to download directly from a link! Seriously. If you right-click, you will not be presented with “Save Link/Target As” option.

If you are a VideoBox user who likes to stream our download files directly in the browser, that functionality will continue to work but right-clicking, and saving the video file will not be possible when using Microsoft Edge.

We hope that Microsoft will release an update soon – But in the meantime, if you already upgraded to Windows 10, we recommend using a different browser when using VideoBox.

“Save Link/Target As” Not displaying? Microsoft Edge Browser

Microsoft’s new browser, Edge, currently doesn’t offer the ability to save files directly from webpages. If you right-click on a download link or media file, the option to download is not provided.

We are hopeful the Microsoft will update Edge to allow downloading but in the meantime, please use an alternate browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer.
