    Microsoft Edge browser wont work after upgrading SSD


    Hi,

    I've just upgraded to a larger SSD (by cloning it), and since then Edge wont work. I use Chrome for most searches but find Edge is better for news searches.

    - I can't uninstall and re-install it because Microsoft doesn't allow that (very annoying).
    - if I search for the executable in file manager, it's nowhere to be found.
    - If I type 'Edge' in the toolbar search box, it finds it, but shows a generic icon, not the correct icon, and it wont open
    - I know it exists somewhere because, before I re-made Chrome my default, a web link fired it up
    - I've tried to 'Repair' it, and also 'Reset' it in Program Manager - made no difference
    - I've used a Registry utility to clean up any registry issues - and it all seems to be fine, but made no difference
    - Windows 10 itself appears to think that everything is fine too - not showing any system errors - and completely up to date
    - I ran the System File Checker Tool - sfc /scannow - and everything is fine

    Surely there must be an easy way to get this browser to work?

    Thanks.

    SPEC:
    - Windows 10 - version 2004 (OS Build: 19041.572)

    - Intel Core i7 3770K Processor 3.50 GHz
    - Asus P8B75-M LX Basic Micro ATX Motherboard
    - 16GB Corsair PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 Memory (2 x 8GB sticks), Channel # Dual, DRAM Freq 798.2 MHz,
    - Samsung 860 series: 1Tb SSD (upgraded from original 250Gb SSD)
    - 3 other (mechanical) hard drives

    :)

    Microsoft is developing a built-in ad blocker for its Edge browser

    "One of the first browser add-ons many people install to improve their online experience is Adblock Plus or something similar. Until recently, Microsoft Edge's lack of support for add-ons put off a lot of would-be users, but reports from Build 2016 suggest that native ad blocking is on its way to the Internet Explorer successor.

    Adblock Plus is coming to Edge, but built-in ad blocking would negate the need for such an add-on. A slide shown off and snapped at a Build presentation shows that the next version of Edge, in response to user feedback, will feature ad blocking capabilities. There's no word on delivery timescale, but the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update would seem a likely candidate.

    ZDNet's Ed Bott photographed the slide which shows Microsoft's development roadmap built around feedback from testers. Right at the top of the list is reference to plans to create a plugin and extension store for Edge, but it's entry number four that's more intriguing.

    "Build ad blocking features into the browser" is listed as a Feature Request from users. But the good news is that it is not only listed as being "Deliverable 4682811", but as "Targeted for the next version".

    This will no doubt come as good news for those who have fallen in love with Edge, but it's not something that will be welcomed by the likes of Adblock Plus. It does seem that, particularly in the mobile arena, there is a move to baking ad blocking into the browser so it makes sense that Microsoft is following the trend. But it is the fact that Edge straddles Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile that makes this a particularly interesting move.

    Keep an eye out for Insider builds in the coming weeks as the feature may be just around the corner.
    "

    Forget extensions, built-in ad blocking is coming to Microsoft Edge - [UPDATE... no it's not!]
