Windows 10: Internet won't connect when clicking on Edge icon

    Internet won't connect when clicking on Edge icon

    I started having problems last week. When I click on the Edge icon, nothing happens. My default browser is Internet Explorer. Everything was working fine before. I've checked my settings and nothing seems to have changed. The other users on this computer can get connected. I can connect to the internet if I click on the Google Chrome icon on my desktop. I've tried changing my default browser to Chrome and Edge, but still nothing happens when I click on the Edge icon

    Did you happen to try the one within the app section, rather than the shortcut on the quick-launch? I've had shortcuts go bad in the past, so that's one thing I usually check before delving in too much with finding a fix.

    Yes, I tried the app icon, but that didn't connect either

    I did do some quick checking and I found THIS article, which has some good info.

    Also, I found another thread from this same site titled, Reinstalling Microsoft Edge, which may offer some help too.

    Thanks for the links. I was having the same issues, among other issues. I did a clean install of Windows 10 and Edge now works.
