Windows 10: Edge browser Corruption

    Edge browser Corruption


    I just discovered all my extensions in Edge are corrupt, and will not reinstall.

    I Found several sites with similar advice, i.e.

    https://www.groovypost.com/howto/fre...-10-pcs-guide/

    I deleted the contents of "Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe", but the command for powershell to restore Edge only brings up an error.

    Hi kitpzyxmsir.

    Have a look at this tutorial, Option 2. Edge is listed under "Microsoft Edge".

    Reinstall and Re-register Apps in Windows 10

    I would cut and paste right out of code box.

    Although there is a warning that this will not work if you uninstalled an app for all user accounts. Likely should have done this first.

    If this fails I think I would be doing an in place repair / upgrade. Assuming you are on 1709 it will be a repair. If you are not on 1709 it will be an upgrade, just FYI.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    I always recommend having a complete data backup even though the process is supposed to be non destructive.

    Hi Caledon Ken,

    I restored back to a Macrium image before I tried to uninstall Edge, but it's still corrupted.

    I tried all Brinks solutions, but all failed.

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Did you try inplace repair?


    Is Edge working and the extensions aren't or is Edge still dead?

    Saw this on extensions, I haven't tested.
