    Microsoft Edge Browser "This app can't open"


    Hi,

    When I try to open Microsoft Edge browser I get an error message saying "This app can't open A problem with windows is preventing Microsoft Edge from opening. Refreshing your PC might help fix it". Also if I try to open a .HTML file I get the same error but when I close Microsoft Edge browser after opening a .HTML file I get another error saying "An error in a system binary was detected. Try refreshing the PC to fix the problem".

    I have done sfc/scannow in the Command Prompt and it says that there are corrupt files. When I look at the CBS.log file it mentions MicrosoftEdge. Here is the CBS.log file

    CBS.rar

    I have tried using the command below, using the Install.esd file located in the $Windows.~BT folder to try and repair the MicrosoftEdge file but it says that the source file cannot be found.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Install.esd:1 /limitaccess
    I know you can get a good copy of files from another PC and use that to repair the corrupt ones but I don't have another PC running windows 10. Someone would need to send me the MicrosoftEdge files so I can try using them to repair the corrupt ones, would this work?

    I have tried everything, apart from using the "Reset this PC" option. I don't really want to reset my laptop so if anyone knows how to fix this without resetting then, thanks.

    Cheers,
    James

    :)

    edge Multipole browsers

    I believe what he is saying is, that he can't open up multiple Edge (Windows) by right clicking the Edge (Icon) in the taskbar and then clicking on "e Microsoft Edge" - this does not open up an extra Edge browser Window, I've tried it myself. The only
    way I have found to open up an extra and multiple Edge browser windows is to right click on a link on a website that is opened up in Edge and then click "open in a new window". You should be able to open up multiple Edge browser Windows by right clicking the
    Edge icon on the taskbar and then clicking on "e Microsoft Edge", but as of now, you can't do that, but you can do that with IE11...
