Note: If you are using Private Browser Mode, make sure you have enabled AdBlock to run in private windows. Go to about:addons, click on AdBlock, and next to "Run in Private Windows" select Allow.

 

Edge

If a puzzle icon appears on the Edge toolbar, please do the following:

  1. Click the puzzle icon to access the Edge Extensions Menu.
  2. The AdBlock icon should be displayed in the list in the dropdown that appears. Click on the view/hide icon (eye icon) to add or remove the AdBlock icon from the toolbar.

If a puzzle icon does not appear on the Edge toolbar, please do the following:

  1. Click the Edge menu (the three horizontal dots in the upper right corner of the window).
  2. You should see the AdBlock icon at the top of the menu. Right-click the AdBlock icon and select Show next to address bar.
Is the address bar hiding the icon? If you've followed the steps above and the icon still doesn't appear, the address bar itself is probably hiding it. Put your cursor on the right-hand side of the address bar and drag to the left to make the box shorter. The icons for all of your enabled extensions will appear one by one as the address bar makes room.
