Summary0025126: Device Manager: Microsoft Edge cannot be added (except as the Default device)
DescriptionWhile trying to get the HTML5 target to use the Win 10 Edge browser I just couldn't get it to work. From what I can find online just running the exe doesn't work (from the location: C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe) and you need to have it pinned to the taskbar since it is a Universal App... No matter what you do, you can't get GMS to actually run it UNLESS it is set in the OS as the default browser and you have first cleared the target device list and restarted GMS2.

So, I'm filing a bug to see if there is any way that we can get it to be detected and run using the device manager other than having it set as the default browser.

I doubt this is something we can add (unless MS have added something that allows Edge to be started from the command line)

actually after a bit of browsing looks like we can use, so should be possible now
