    Microsoft Edge Not Opening Maximised


    I am slowly using microsoft edge more with Windows 10. Today i altered the default search engine from Bing to Duck Duck Go and closed the browser. On reopening the browser I couldn't get Edge to open in a maximised state unless I clicked the option in top right corner. I tried changing the Edge shortcut to maximised but this didn't make any difference. It is clear I must have clicked some other button by accident when I changed the default search engine.. As a workaround I restored my system backup of 3 days ago and had the laborious task of reinstalling Windows updates again, but hopefully Edge will now be the right size. What do you think I did wrong as I don't want something similar happening again ? Thanks.

    :)

  2. Microsoft Edge, maximised

    Hi, Chris.

    Thank you for posting in Community, I understand your concern and we will try to assist you in the best way we can.

    I would like you to open Edge, click on the page, press and hold the ctrl button and using the + and - button check if you can minimize and maximize the screen.

    If this does not help then, I would suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below to reset Edge.


    • Navigate to the location:

      C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe

    • Delete everything in this folder.

    • Type Windows Powershell in search box.

    • Right click on Windows Powershell and select
      Run as administrator.

    • Copy and paste the following command.

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

    Hope this information helps.
