    Cannot find Edge anywhere: how do I use it?


    Folks,

    I've just upgraded from 8.1 to 10. During the Welcome screen, I chose Express Install and agreed to the W10 default selections, which included using Edge as my browser.

    When the install finished, I could not see an Edge icon anywhere. Searching for "edge" did not produce any useful results. I still have IE11 and Chrome, so the internet is still available to me.

    How do I find Edge? How do I install it if it is missing?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    If all went without problems, Edge should be the icon on the taskbar, it looks very similar to the old IE icon
    does it not exist under start menu, all apps then look for Microsoft Edge, not just Edge

    I am having the same problem. The upgrade seemed to go without a hitch, but the Edge icon is nowhere to be found on my desktop or task bar. And yes, I do indeed know the difference in the Edge vs. Internet Explorer icons! I also tried to search for it in Windows Explorer, but still no luck.

    What if you open up Start menu, do you find Edge there, right click and pin to taskbar.

    Nope! It doesn't show up in the Start menu either. But then again, neither does Internet Explorer...although I was able to find IE by searching for it.

    That is strange, but no more IE 11 on Windows 10.

    Since i am new myself to this OS, hard to say where to look in settings, i would have to look into it myself as i recall one in Win 8.1 to disable and enable IE back then.
