    Dear Woldsweather:
    When you see the red text warning "*Some settings are managed by your organization" that simply means some policies apply to your current update settings. Click on the blue line that reads "View configured update policies" and post a screen shot of what comes up in response:
    Click image for larger version.

    On my machine, for example, here's what comes up:
    Click image for larger version.

    This simply means I elected not to receive Windows drivers from Windows update at some point in time. When you do this on your PC we'll be able to see (and make advice based on) what's in effect there.

    HTH,

    What happened when you tried the first command?
    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach  {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register  "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}
    And the other steps leading up to the command you posted, did those complete successful or fail? Are you logged on to your MSA as admin? I've never used this fix (haven't needed it) I'm thinking a user would need to be logged on at least as an administrator to complete the fix.

    Did you take a look at the older thread I linked to? There might be some hints there you can use. I can't offer anything more than what's in the link I posted, I don't use Edge anymore.

    I found that solution to repairing/reinstalling Edge from google 3 years ago.

    There could be other members respond with other idea's or experience doing this.

    Why not just switch browsers?

    I tried Edge when I first got Windows 10.
    It worked.
    Then it broke.
    Then it worked.
    Then it broke.
    When I say "it broke" I mean it wouldn't start. Click ... and nothing.

    I gave up. Uninstall. Gone.

    Firefox is better. Chrome is even better. And both work, always.

    I have just done the Windows repair with the media repair tool. Edge launches then quits. What next?

    Yes but they don't let me keep my favourites open in a column that's the only reason I switched to edge rather than chrome or firefox.

    Is that a plug in? I searched many times to avoid edge but never found anything.

    To open the Bookmarks sidebar, on the toolbar choose View select Sidebar and then Bookmarks. Alternatively use the keyboard shortcut Control+B
