    Edge not closing

    I have windows 10 professional. Microsoft Edge is not closing properly. I press x and nothing happens. I have to use task manager to close edge. I can browse pages and some functions work. others dont, like i cannot open a new window and No history is being saved either.

    I have tried sfc/scannow and powershell to reinstall and re-register edge but that hasnt helped. I cleaned the browsing history too but to no avail. even tried DISM to no effect.
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    any help would be appreciated. thanks much

    Hi, if it's not the effect of a 3rd party add-on, and fails similarly if you create a new user for test purposes, and is the same in Safe Mode, then I suggest your only option may be an in-place upgrade repair install, which keeps all your programs and most settings.

    never mind. just learnt today Edge is quite unsafe. Some engineer at Google found out, told Microsoft 3 months ago and they havent done anything.

    Google leaks bugs in Edge and Internet Explorer that Microsoft is yet to fix

    Edge was slightly faster in windows 10 than Firefox but the hassles are too much. Its just not smart to have a browser that i cannot uninstall and reinstall for one.
