In order to use OneDrive I must be logged in but cannot do so as it's not clear how to enable cookies using the new M$ Edge browser?
If 'More options' are the only options available then the browser fails in my book before it's even setup!....I can anticipate Edge ending up being treated the same way as M$
Internet Explorer by me which was unused in favour of Google Chrome!
The following is the message I am receiving when trying to login to OneDrive

As amazing as it is to believe, yes, this feature in missing. Edge does not allow you to manage cookies by site. Either you accept cookies or do not. Nor can you set edge to automatically clear your temp files, history, cookies on exit. I cannot even begin
to understand how MS managed to omit this functionality in Edge. I know a lot of people who will not use it for this very reason.
It's interesting that I had to enable cookies just to reply to this question. As SabrePilot said, you can't manage cookies for individual sites. What a drag. Cookies are well known for tracking data and usage, so I have always turned them off.
Unfortunately, cookies are need for passwords, info, and individual settings for banks, certain websites, and email accounts.
How in the world is Edge useful if this can't be regulated? Based on this, I've gone over to FireFox, which I also have mixed feelings about. Trying out safari. I already use it on iPad. Hate Google Chrome since it captures a lot of things you do and acts
many times like a virus program in determining your use of it.
Oh well. The old internet explorer is still available in Windows 10. I'm even evaluating going back to windows 8.1, which I didn't like either. Perhaps Windows 7 is the way to go.
For someone that wants us to upgrade, Microsoft is making it difficult. Even Windows Media Player is gone, gone, gone, whoa, whoa, whoa...
I totally agree, I always used the "prompt" method to see which cookies to accept or deny. Hey, MS please bring back the "prompt" option for cookies. I want control of MY computer. I can't even remove the initial opening window that prevents me from logging
into MY computer.
