How to play your media when Microsoft Edge browser minimised

If you are listening to online radio or watching YouTube using Microsoft Edge browser and decided to minimise the browser to the taskbar, Microsoft Edge browser will kindly stop playing all your media. (Arrrrrgh!)

The fix/work around is by letting Microsoft Edge browser run in the background. To enable this feature, go to Windows Settings -> Privacy -> Background apps. Look for Microsoft Edge and switch the label to ON.

MS_Edge_Background_App_Run

This update won’t take effect until you re-launch your Microsoft Edge Browser.
