After the recent update, disabling the 'Microsoft Edge rounded corners' and few other features are not working.

Version 112.0.1722.7 dev (64 bit)


Why 'always open favourites in a new tab' is  still not returned


What is "video smart explorer"? Nothing in the FAQ about this. When I ask the new edge search about this I get back "I’m sorry, but I couldn’t find any specific information about a feature called “Video Smart Explorer” in Microsoft Edge browser. Could you please provide more details or context about this feature?"
Is split view dead?

"Microsoft Edge rounded corners" flag not working after the new update of 112.0.1722.7 and few other features. Before introducing new features, disable or give an option to remove the ugly rounded web pages. It just looks pathetic to work in EDGE, with such rounded corners. Fix it soon.

'Microsoft Edge rounded corners' is not working again. Please fix it, rounded corners are just awful

wow and thanks microsoft!

@Eric_E Hello Edge team, can we have an open discussion about the visuals and the flags that control the new visuals, and the team's intention behind these changes and what are the plans for future releases?


Non of the three UI related flags that disables these new features are working anymore


Nowhere in your notes are there words about the changes of the flag usages, if rendering the flags useless was not a bug but done on purpose then I hope at least it gets communicated instead of forcing them down your users' throat like this. Depending on how the Edge team is going to approach the issues brought by the new visuals people would be able to consider whether to switch browsers or to know better about the intentions behind these new visuals and help provide more useful feedback on how to better implement them.


A lot of people have already expressed their discontent with these new changes from previous updates and wanted options to turn them on or off. Doesn't matter how coherently good these look on Windows 11, the fact that these new visuals are not productivity helping is apparent to a lot of users out there, not to mention those who are still on Windows 10 or lower let alone people using other OSes the rounded style is also not very visually fitting. 


Please communicate more on this.

If you search the flags for 'split' you can enable it. Nice feature! @edger12 

Very useful. Missed it for few days.
Thanks for pointing out :)

If you don't mind, can you point out any interesting flags?

I feel like this version is quite bugged in some way with a few being seen by me. What I experienced for now is the show icon only for favourites is reset everytime the browser is opened.

@Eric_E Just updated it, liking it so far, but there is a couple of issues. The outright crash relating to Sidebar has been fixed, but it still can't be closed when in full-screen; only workaround is to come out of full screen then close it (MacOS). Also, I can confirm what everyone else is saying, the #edge-rounded-containers flag isn't working again - please fix this. I've attached screenshots of both problems.

@familieslife1 Actually never mind, the sidebar hasn't been fixed either - the browser still just flashes red then crashes when you try to quit with it open.

Porque vocês removeram a opção de tela dividida do edge? essa ferramenta era muito boa e me auxiliava muito na minha produtividade.
E a opção de abrir favoritos em uma nova guia ainda não está disponível
We apologize for the ongoing issue with the flags not functioning correctly. Our engineering team is actively working on a resolution, and we appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.

I totally agree with your comment concerning the three flags that you had posted in a previous browser update, I tried all three of the with this latest update and found them to be just as you stated: "None of the three UI related flags that disables these new features are working anymore"
I'm still thankful that you were kind enough to share this information in the first place !

As of this morning (Weds. 03/22/23) these three flags are working again, in my case since I had left them in the experimental flags area I'm assuming the developers enabled them to function once again. Yeah ! :smile:

Our engineering team is currently investigating the issue and is fully aware of it. I appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this.
UGLY.Rounded.BORDERS\EDGES are back!

Please remove it entirely, if the fixes introduced the previous week are constantly overwritten by the "fixes" introduced next week.

Allow us at least to manage this "setting" in General Appearance options!
