    My girlfriend has a Windows 10 laptop that she uses for school. She has to use this online thing called blackboard to upload assignments and other things. However, edge browser won't allow her to attach the files to submit them for review. She has to end up using Mozilla Firefox and she has no problems. Any ideas people on why because she would just like to use the edge browser.

    She's probably having trouble uploading files because Edge is a new browser, due to it being a new browser its not playing nice with websites, last month I tried to book my (driving) theory test on DVLA's website and Edge wouldn't let me log on.

    To this date (4/21/16), the problem has still not been resolved. I use gmail, so I downloaded the Chrome browser, and with Chrome, I had no problems attaching files to my emails. I guess I won't be using Microsoft Edge anymore. Also, it's pretty hard to believe that Microsoft would've ever released this software, without having found such a major bug like this.

    It's actually quite funny....I watch the shopping channel, QVC, where they frequently sell laptop computers. All the reps are always pushing all the "wonders" of the new browser, Microsoft Edge.....how you can "highlight" and even write on web pages, and send them to friends.....but it cannot even perform the majorly fundamental task of attaching files to email. So ironic! Everyone is clearly asleep at the wheel!

    November 23, 2016, and the problem remains. Since I need to submit files online, Edge cannot be my default browser.

    I was curious if this works for me, so I tried with my Gmail account and attached a jpeg to an email. It works ok here. What kind of files are you trying to attach?
