Yesterday I formatted my pc and reinstalled Edge Dev. Today I noticed that the wallpaper hadn't change from the default one to one of Windows Spotlight. Checking in the New Tab settings, I noticed that it now let's me select a wallpaper from my PC. The problem is that after selecting one and opening a new tab, it defaults back to Edge default wallpaper. Anyone else happening this? Cheers!

Hi,
yes it was happening on Canary too since Monday but fixed now.

will probably get fixed in the next Dev update.

You're welcome, for me every time i launched Edge i had to click on the gear in NTP and change one of the settings like a toggle button and that would bring back the custom background.

you can also send this problem using feedback button on Edge so the devs will get more data :)
