How To Reinstall Microsoft Edge In Windows 10

you will need administrator rights

Step 1: Close Microsoft Edge browser, if it’s running.
Step 2: Open up File Explorer, click View and then check Hidden items box to view all hidden folders. This is required as some folders like AppData are hidden by default.

Step 3: Navigate to the following location:
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Packages
Replace “UserName” with your user name.

Step 4: Look for the folder named Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe and delete it. When you press or click Delete, you might get the confirmation dialog. Click Yes button.

Step 5: Close all running apps and restart your PC.

Step 6: Launch PowerShell as administrator. This can be done by typing PowerShell in Start menu or taskbar search box, right-clicking on PowerShell entry and then clicking Run as administrator option.

Step 7: Once PowerShell is launched, navigate to your user account’s directory by executing the following command.
cd C:\users\yourusername
Replace “yourusername” with your actual user name of your account.

Step 8: Finally, copy and paste the following command in the prompt and then press Enter key.

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -Verbose}

Step 9:That’s it! Restart your computer once again. You should now be able to launch and use the Edge browser without any issues.

Hope this helps
