    Edge won't open.


    When I first got Win 10, the Edge browser worked great but after a time it simply quit working. The opening screen with the icon comes up but then it goes back to my desktop. It isn't a critical problem yet because I can still use Explorer but Edge had some features I liked and I would like to go back to it before too long. I have seen some comments here about proxy servers and the like but I am not brave enough to tinker with that. Any sugestions?

    I had this happen. The only I could get it to work again was deleting the Edge favorites folder and letting it create it again. My Edge favorites were located in:
    %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorite s

    I don't know why but the s keeps getting separating from favorite. I tried to edit it but it keeps doing it.

    Didn't work. I am happy with Explorer as it works fine. I may just disable Edge so I don't keep getting the popup asking me which browser I want to use to open links from email, which is becoming an annoyance.

    I have the same problem. Have searched all over the web and tried all solutions offered and nothing works. Nice try Microsoft, you really screwed up on this release. I'm going back to a much more stable Chrome browser.

    There are many who are saying this is not working for them. My issue was that the path noted above Did Not exist in my system. I found that I only had a path of %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge I had to add the folder "User" and inside of that folder "Default". Once those folders where added Edge launched as if it had never been opened before. Apparently this folder structure is required for Edge to launch, another example of not having proper documentation on things from Microsoft.

    I found don't do anything in Win10, leave everything as is, they seemed to make sure if you change anything it catastrophically blows up... and you are so screwed! just let it work, and pray with voodoo it doesn't take your computer to hell... This is my third install, and will never even try to change colors on desktop, am afraid of it ruining the whole computer. it just screws the code up so bad you have to wipe it all and start over, there is no recovery...

    Awesome this worked for me! Thanks.

    How did you find out about what folder structure was required? Like you say very poor documentation when it comes to Windows Store apps / packages.

    You posted the problem Aug 2015. It's now Apr 2016 and Edge still doesn't work. Thanks Microsoft for the amazing support of your customers. By the way, I have NEVER received a decent answer from your "Support" staff.
