    Lost Edge browser icon on desktop

    Somehow, my Edge browser icon has disappeared from the desktop. I can still access it through the Cortana search box. So, obviously the browser is on my computer, but I'd like to access it via an icon on the desktop rather than the search box. What can I do? Thanks.

    A default install of Windows 10 doesn't put an Edge icon on the desktop, rather it puts one on the taskbar. If you don't have one there either, open the Start menu and scroll down the All Apps list to find 'Microsoft Edge'. Right-click on it and in More> you'll find 'Pin to taskbar'.

    Or just open Edge and while its icon is on the taskbar, right-click on it and pin it to the taskbar that way.
