    Location of MS Edge app launcher file?


    I'm trying to create a custom function key on my keyboard--triggered by launching a program--but unlike IE I'm unable to locate MS Edge. Does anyone know how to overcome this?

    Hello Kravan,

    If you like, you could use the Microsoft Edge shortcut from the tutorial below for this.

    Thanks Brink, I've tried this. After directing the key to this shortcut, it recognize only as "explorer.exe" so what is launched is the File Explorer, not Edge.

    I'm not sure why it would do that. Did you try using the command below for it instead?

    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:Appsfolder\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe!MicrosoftEdge

    The command above is set as the target in the shortcut, target location %windir%
    I cannot directly use a command as the trigger, it will say as invalid file name. It seems my keyboard software only accepts application files (?). I'm using a Corsair K90 mechanical keyboard by the way.

    Well, if you like, you could also assign your own keyboard shortcut to the shortcut.
