    Edge sometimes doesn't open when I click it

    Does anyone find Edge on rare occasions does not open? I have it pinned to the taskbar and on very, very rare instances nothing opens. It's a very easy remedy, either reboot or quicker still if I go into taskmanager and kill the edge process. Then if I click on the pinned taskbar for edge it opens just fine and happy browsing.

    I must re-iterate replicating the issue is tough because it is quite rare. Happened yesterday and before that a couple weeks ago. So I'm thinking it's just an 'Edge' thing that happens from time to time.

    I have had it happen to me too, and used the same remedies as you.<--confirmation

    Thank you so much for the reply. Whilst it's annoying to have the glitch it is re-assuring to know it's not a problem with my own machine per se.
