How to reinstall the Microsoft Edge Browser

I had faced similar issues with the edge browser. It disappeared one day. There was no way to manually launch the edge browser. I was able to fix it by reinstalling the edge browser.

First we need to delete the corrupt Microsoft Edge Folder. The path => C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe

Delete the “Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe” Folder

You may not able to delete the folder itself and 2 or 3 files. but it does’nt matter. Select the folder, Hit Delete, Then if it asks for admin privileges, Just hit skip and then ok . Restart the computer.

Then Launch Powershell as administrator and run the following command.

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

Hit enter and once the command is executed, Quit powershell and restart the computer to complete the process.

The edge browser will be back and running in all its glory.
