Hi

 

Can we expect the Library feature "Open with Explorer" in SharePoint to be available in the new Edge C browser?

 

Thank you

Hi @moraise, to enable the "Open with Explorer" functionality you need to run the page in IE-Mode.  This is because that feature is supported by an Active-X component.  You can find out more about how to set up IE-Mode and add it to the site list manager here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/edge-ie-mode.  Thanks - Elliot
