  1. Edge Stopped Opening

    Edge was working just hunky dory until one day it wasn't. Cortana will works (fingers crossed). I only use it for Bing Rewards. I had been having a LOT of crashed pages before it stopped, which I just realized. I am on a legitimate Windows 10 Pro, Dell Laptop (older but just fine), and as I said, it just stopped opening.

    I have tried opening as Administrator, I have done the scans M$ says to do, I have done just about everything everyone has said to do (rebooting between tries) and it just won't open.

    As I said, Cortana still works, which I understand is weird because when one stops, the other does too.

    I have searched the community, and haven't found this exact issue anywhere, so I post here. Thanks.

    Microsoft Edge Just Stopped Opening

    This has been an ongoing problem since the day it was released. When will MS start making their products actually usable?

    Microsoft Edge Just Stopped Opening

    Thank you for the suggestions. I have tried all of this but Edge still will not open. When you click on the start icon or the app it does nothing, no error messages. I have decided to no spend any more time on this, i will just use google chrome from
    now on, which works fine and never gives a problem.

    Microsoft does need to do a better job on software they create, Edge should not give problems like this for no obvious reason and then take hours to try to figure out hot to get it to work.

    Thanks all and good bye

    Edge Stopped Opening

    Hi, options:
    1. Use a system restore point.
    2. Restore your system from a disk image - you have discovered how invaluable the routine use of disk imaging is- so often recommended here- e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for images - allows you to recover from many situations relatively quickly without tech. help.
    3. Repair/fix:
    Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10
    Therein find Edge. Read the instructions at the start of the section above that.

    That's why I'm not using Edge. To many problems. Problems I don't have with Fx or Chrome.

  6. Dag nabittit, I usually do a system restore first thing. I create them regularly. I went back four days and it worked. Thanks!

    I normally use Firefox, but with Bing Rewards, I get $5 gift cards from Amazon. I like Amazon gift cards. Very much. I get more points towards them using Edge. So, I use Edge until I have all my points for the day, then back to FF. *Biggrin

    Do have a look at disk imaging.. it's invaluable.

    I have a disk image, but never really want to use it. It takes too long. And yes, I was as impressed as you were that a system restore actually worked. LOL

    That's good.. but you need to update.

    It takes me just a few mins to actually create a system image update once I've connected my disk and launched the program. That's from a SSD. And it's not too long with my 1Tb SSHD. USB3 transfer rates help.

    You do use incremental or differential imaging do you? They are faster and smaller. The base image takes longer to create.
