Access Forms: Edge Web Browser Control

New Contributor

Hello

According to this link, I ought to be able to use an Edge Web Browser Control inside an Access form:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-web-browsing-to-a-form-8ec2fe67-1b19-4f04-92b6-eb7660...

 

Unfortunately I am only given the option of a bog standard Internet Explorer browser, not Edge.

 

WhatIsMyBrowser.com reports IE11 (IE7 Compatability View)

 

I'm a 365 subscriber running Access 2104 (Build 13929.20386 Click-to-Run) and Edge 90.0.818.62 (Official build) (64-bit).

 

Any ideas?

Interesting that an official MS article states the Edge browser control is already available.
Unfortunately this isn't yet the case.
It was originally slated for Dec 2020, then the date was revised to Aug 2021, See Access roadmap 

However, according to the MS Access development team at DevCon 2021, it is now unlikely that the Edge browser control will be available before the end of 2021

Top reply, I wasn't aware of the roadmap thank you @isladogs 

You're welcome. Treat the slated dates as 'elastic'
Their current priority is the Dataverse connector and everything else has been pushed back as a result. It may or may not help that the Access Team leader recently left and the replacement hasn't yet been announced
