Restoring Microsoft Edge start page after cache clean.

    Restoring Microsoft Edge start page after cache clean.

    I know that by rebooting the PC that this restores the start page and I also know that the start page is a script part of which logs me into my Microsoft account.
    Does anyone know how to run the script without having to always reboot the computer.?

    Hi boccos. Welcome to the TensForums @boccos

    If we could clarify the issue. Your problem is title "Restoring Microsoft Edge Start page after cache clean"

    The start page is set within Edge and should be available every time you start Edge (the browser). If you "Clear your browsing data" and you clear all your data some data will have to be re-entered. Example email passwords for (hotmail, live or MSN)

    The Welcome page and the logging into your Microsoft account to access your PC is not part of Edge.

    Is this a question about Edge, the browser, or logging into device and a corporate log in script?

    It is about how Edge treats the start page which contains the news feed as well as in my case a list of stocks and shares which is under the heading of My Portfolio.
    I have a pop-up windows from Wise Cleaner that warns of excessive internet cache and when run, Edge's start page no longer appears.
    My only remedy so far has been to reboot the computer, which then restores the start page.
    When I use the Developers Tools provided in Edge to look at the page, it appears to be a 'script' being calling for my Microsoft name and password plus I guess my current settings.
    I was rather hoping that there was a manual way of re-running this 'script' without the need to reboot the Computer.
    Therefore in answer to your question, the start page in Edge becomes unavailable once Edges Cache is cleared. The only solution to date is either not to clear the cache or reboot the entire Computer.
    Hoping that a simple script may be written modelled on the existing 'script' which can be run when the cache is cleared.

    Interesting. I think I understand.

    Sorry I'm unaware of a script.

    You could also try just signing out rather than reboot and then log in. Likely shorter that reboot.

    ALT + F4 will bring up a window.

    As an experiment when Wise Cleaner throws the message have you tried just using Edge's Clear Browsing Content.
