Is it possible to access a Microsoft Report Server in Microsoft Edge?

What I have found so far is that you cannot access the Report Server using the Microsoft Edge browser.

Microsoft Edge, or simply Edge is the default browser in Windows 10. It is not designed to start with elevated permissions.

When you try to access Reporting Services Server  in the default Edge browser on Windows 10 and you end up with access denied message. The message as says , /  does not have sufficient permissions. One could use another browser such as Firefox but Reporting Services server cannot be accessed even when the browser is launched with elevated permissions. Firefox did not have problems in accessing the Report Server in SSRS 2012.

The way out for this in using the IE 11 browser that comes with Windows 10.
