MEdge not working properly

Ok, this might sound like crazy talk but it really happens to me! I’ve set Edge as my main browser and ever since then, I get the same problem – I open a new tab, type in the website and then get this message:

Hmm, we can’t reach this page.

Try this

•Make sure you’ve got the right URL

•Refresh the page

•Search for what you want

If I happen to click the last (third option), the tab opens in Bing. Yeah. How do I get this fixed?

  1. Check your network connectivity.
    Eg : Go to CMD and type ping
  2. Change your Proxy setting to Automatic

Hi @RobertsW,

This is one of the problems that has been present since the earliest versions of Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge is the error message “ Hmm, we can’t reach this page ,” which prevents users from connecting to certain webpages.

There is not an exact reason for this error so check this article which has deep investigation and the feedback collected from the community users. Hmm, we can’t reach this page error in Microsoft Edge [FULL GUIDE]

Hope this helps

go to start menu open settings and network and internet in proxy tap turn on automatically detect settings
then open network and sharing settings and from ethernet options in ipv4 settings choose obtain DNS server address automatically.
open CMD with administrator and type ipconfig /flashdns
open services and check if dns client is started

Step 1: Clean Boot Your PC

If it’s the first time you had a problem with your Edge browser, one of the first things you should do is to restart your PC, better yet, do a clean boot . It allows you to run your PC with only a minimal set of drivers and programs:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time, type msconfig and press Enter .

  1. Go to Services tab, check the box for Hide all Microsoft services . Click the Disable all button.

  1. Go to Startup tab and click Open Task Manager .

  1. Select each item on the list and click Disable .

  1. Close your Task Manager and restart your computer.

  2. If Edge still opens and closes unexpectedly in a few seconds, move on to see if the steps below help.

Step 2: Reinstall through PowerShell

If your Edge browser isn’t installed correctly, not working or opening problem like this could happen. To fix it, you can reinstall Microsoft Edge:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and S at the same time, then type powershell . Right-click Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator .

When prompted with the administrator permission, click Yes to continue.

  1. In the PowerShell window, copy and paste in the following command:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

  1. You will see a Deployment Operation Progress pop up. Wait for the process to finish. Then try your Edge again.

Step 3: Use Group Policy Editor

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and S at the same time, type group policy and click Edit group policy .

  1. On the left side of the pane, go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components . Under Windows Components category, click App package Deployment .

  1. On the right side of the pane, double-click Allow deployment operations in special profiles .

  1. Click Enabled . Click Apply and OK.

Step 4: Reinstall Windows 10

If you’ve tried all the above methods but still no avail, you may need to consider reinstalling or refreshing your Windows 10
