This happens off and on for me with edge, its on the fritz now and has been for a while this time. my internet is fine, chrome/opera/firefox all work fine. Edge, it seems it dont even try and no matter what i do it says "www.google.com’s (yahoo, bing, nothing works) server IP address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_SECURE_CONFIG" The second it opens and tries its home page or any other site thereafter. I've tried the reset settings several times but it dont change a thing. Is this a known thing? Easy fix? Another potential way to "reset" edge without uninstalling? Thanks for any ideas.

    Hi @Mr. Terry,

    It looks like a DNS issue. You can try toggling the Use secure DNS to specify how to lookup the network address for websites option under Edge settings --> Privacy, search, and services --> Security. Sometimes
    Use current service provider can fix this issue, but you may still need to Choose a service provider if current service provider fails to work.
