Enabling Loopback for MS Edge with Windows 10

Special configuration may be necessary you use Edge as the external browser with Windows 10 OS.

MS Windows 10 uses an isolation technology ("AppContainer") that may prevent requests being sent from Edge via ADAC to your application. Although this does not always happen, we recommend enabling loopback before scanning with Edge configured as an external browser.
