Where do I access Microsoft Edge events in Event Viewer?

FlyerAdmin 66 Reputation points

Our environment is running a web interface that needs to use Internet Explorer compatibility mode. Since using this method to open the web portal users are finding their sessions with the utility unexpectedly terminating more and more frequently. I want to look in Event Viewer and collect the errors that are causing this, but I'm unable to locate where Edge events are contained in Event Viewer.

My apologies for the simple request but I've been unable to find where these errors are being collected. The help is appreciated!

    The Application log in the Event Viewer may contain error messages or other events related to the browser. Look for events with the source set to Internet Explorer or Edge.

    Hi @FlyerAdmin ,

    In Event Viewer, you can go to Windows Logs --> Application, and then search for msedge.exe for Edge logs. For IE mode crashes, you may also need to search for iexplore.exe.

    You may also find crash reports at edge://crashes/.
