Reset Microsoft Edge Windows 10 | The method is very simple.

How to Reset Microsoft Edge Windows 10

 If you are running Chrome or Firefox, and a problem occurs, you can try to uninstall and reinstall the web browser to resolve the issue. However, like Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge is part of Windows 10. So it's not possible to uninstall the app.


If you are having problems with Microsoft Edge, try to reset Microsoft Edge on your account to fix the problem.


NOTE: This method can cause you to lose your favorites, history, and settings. Previously, it was recommended that you do a full backup or create a system restore point.


Repair Microsoft Edge


1. If you are currently opening Microsoft Edge, close it now.


2. Open File Explorer and type the following path to the address:


C:\Users\UseYourUsername\AppData\Local\Packages and hit enter. (Don't forget to replace "Use YourUserName" with your user account name.)

3. Select and delete the “Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe” folder. If the “Folder Access Denied” prompt appears, just click “Continue”. This may be because there is some content that you cannot delete. If this happens, then select "skip" the file.

You can still delete most of the content in the folder, but if you can't right-click on the “Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe” folder, select “Properties”, then uncheck the “Read-only” option, and click Apply and OK.


4. After you have tried deleting all content, go to the “Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe” folder and try deleting the remaining folders by selecting all folders, right-clicking, then selecting “Delete”, and clicking Yes to confirm the deletion. However, the "AC" folder may not be able to be deleted.


5. Restart your computer.


6. The next step is to re-register Microsoft Edge on your account. Open the Start menu, search for Windows PowerShell, right-click it and select “Run as administrator”.


7. Type the following command and press Enter:


cd C:\Users\UseYourUsername (Don't forget to replace “UseYourUserName” with your user account name).


8. Then, type the following command and press Enter:


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


If the process completed successfully, you will see a message similar to this:


powershell-microsoft-edge
