Re: Debug Log File Found on My Desktop

Mike,
While I personally have not experienced this I have heard of Microsoft Edge leaving a debug file on the desktop in certain cases. One incident, which I read about on the Microsoft Answers forums, involved Edge doing this when opening a PDF file but this was supposedly addressed in the current build. In another case a user reported a similar problem on the JAWS Screen Reader group on Facebook. He reports that Edge does this when accessing the Facebook mobile site mbasic.facebook.com. I am not able to duplicate this although I don't use Edge to open PDF files.

Hi All,
 
I found a Log file on my Win10 Pro 2004 ... .572 desktop a few days ago and the contents are below.
 
debug.log
[1015/103438.956:ERROR:settings.cc(430)] Settings version is not 5
 
Does anyone know what this log file means, or is referring to?  I tried doing a search and came up empty.  The properties stated it was dated October 15, just a day or 2 after installing cumulative + other updates.  Now I'm wondering if this could've been part of my Windows Security icon issues.
 
All input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
 
Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!
