How To Reset Microsoft Edge to Default
« on: October 08, 2015, 12:19:00 pm »
Since many users have complained about not being able to reset the settings on their Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10, we have prepared a tutorial for you guys to help you restart the settings of Microsoft Edge.
IMPORTANT: In case you have logged in any online accounts, make sure to backup all your important passwords, because your login will vanish after reset.

Lets begin!
Step 1: Open the File Explorer in Windows.
Step 2: Navigate to this location:

C:\Users\YOUR PC USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\

Step 3: Delete the folder, called ‘Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe’

After deleting this folder, Microsoft Edge will not work. This is why we should reinstall its package via PowerShell. To do this:

Step 4: Type 'powershell' in the search engine of your Windows 10 search bar.

Step 5: Click on ‘My Stuff’ above the search in order to let Windows display your system results.

Step 6: Right-Click on the ‘Windows PowerShell’ icon and then click on ‘Run as Administrator’ and click on ‘Yes’ on any permissions requested to run.

Step 7: PowerShell will open in a blue window. In it copy and paste or type this code exactly as it is:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

It should display the following result messages if done right.

There you go! You have successfully restarted Microsoft Edge on your PC. Now simply start it again and you should be all set.
