    I am looking for some type of adblock for the edge browser, would anyone happen to know any? Also i have installed the StrokeIt Mouse gesture program for Win10, however it does not seem to work with the Edge browser, would anyone know how to config it, so that i could get it working? And my last question is, can anyone get copy/paste working from the host machine to win10 on vm? i can't seem to get it to copy and paste, but it works on my other vm, but it is running win7/8 etc.

    - Afaik, Edge has no addons yet, but I heard they should be available around Fall this year. Alternatively, you can block ads via a custom HOSTs file.
    - Does StrokeIt work with other Modern UI apps? Could be some strange restriction in place somewhere that prevents such apps from interacting with Modern UI apps.
    - Depends on what Virtual Machine program you're using; maybe someone else can help with this though

    Install Adguard, it works well. You can easily find 180 days trial version. Should be enough before Edge gets plugins :)
    Hosts trick isn't really an acceptable solution...

    if not, edge will be longside with IE, the most unused browser(s) for the home users.
