    I remember being able to start a new tab or new inprivate tab by right clicking the tile in the start menu. Now all I see are 3 options - Unpin, resize and More, none of which have those options. Anyone else have this issue?

    I am using Surface Pro 7, Windows 10 Home 20H2. Edge Version 88.0.705.81 (Official build) (64-bit).

    Open Edge. Click the three dots to the top right... New InPrivate Window.

    It's not an issue.

    it's not, but it was pretty convenient to not have to open a new window and then open in private tab

    I still have the additional right-click options: Top Sites, Recently closed, and Tasks (which has the new window and new InPrivate window options). All are there whether it's a tile on Start or pinned to the taskbar or in the app list. You're on the latest official build so that's not it. Are you signed into Edge with an MS account? If not, then try that.

    I am signed in with my MS account. I get those three options on right-clicking the taskbar icon, but not in the start menu tile or app list.

    Did you update Edge recently?

    I was curious if these options changed for me and they have not.

    Never the less this is quite odd as I have different options... for Edge... always thought those were the only options available as it's the same options in the task bar as well.

    I'm only signed into select Windows / Microsoft apps.

    Windows 10 Pro, 20h2 Build 19042.804.

    This is what I have for Firefox.

    Don't use chrome so can't check that.
    @spicypadthai did you change any settings in Edge or always had these options?

    I didn't change anything in Edge and while I can't say with 100% certainty I've "always" had the options in this screenshot, it's definitely been for a while. Does stuff appear in your timeline (go into Task View and scroll down)? The only thing that's changed recently in Edge for me is the "profile" indicator display on the icon when it's pinned to the taskbar.

    @spicypadthai Prior to a few days ago, I did have Activity History for timeline enabled. I sort of do a "clean" every month end (via disabling the setting) or so otherwise it becomes way too cluttered lol. I have re-enabled it, will monitor if there is any changes as Microsoft has sneakly installed some web apps lol . Posting a thread about that shortly.

    Did some digging and it could be a number of things - file corruption most likely..

    I have come across reporting file corruption in either in the database that stores the tiles, layout in terms of start menu issues related to live tiles but nothing about a specific tile. Fixing either of these files involves creating a new user and copying them over to your main user account...

    In your case if either of these files were corrupted then I imagine your start menu would be acting even more funkier than usual lol...

    Simple steps / have to ask for clarification.

    1)I presume you've unpinned and repinned the tile?

    2)Did you try reinstalling Edge?

    Since you are signed in, I presume you already syncing your favourites etc. If not, you should do so before re-installing edge (sync settings found under edge settings via elipses menu --> profiles -->sync

    I reckon reinstalling Edge may fix the issue and if it doesn't then you could try the start menu troubleshooter - which oddly has been discontinued by Microsoft so your your milage may vary (some people have reported no success).

    So you will have to download it from here.

    Other steps you can try:

    Let us know how you get on.

    P.S in terms of editing screenshots, paste them into paint after using the snipping tool (if you find the canvas is too big, grab a corner before pasting and shrink it down to small as possible, then paste) and use the cropping tool to delete the info you wish to obscure.

    The issue has magically resolved on its own now

    yes I tried unpinning and pinning the tile

    No I did not reinstall Edge

    I'm glad it got resolved without me having to delete my account. Installing all my apps would have been a pain

    Just checked and found that a new version of Edge was released with the vertical tabs feature, so I think that update fixed it.

    Good to hear it's been fixed :), sure does sounds like the update fixed whatever files that were broken / corrupted.

    Do you want the thread to be closed or left open?
