    Move Edge install folder


    at some point i moved my default location for new Apps to a different drive (from the system drive), and now i'd like to change it to another one again. it's easy enough to change the setting for new apps under storage, and i managed to move nearly all the installed apps using their entries under Apps and Features. i can't for the life of me work out how to move edge though, there are all these "Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge.Stable_92.0.902.78_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe" etc dirs under eg G:\WindowsApps, and if i use the 'Modify -> Repair' option for Edge under Apps and Features the timestamps on the latest dirs update so clearly it is still pointing to that drive somehow. any ideas?

    :)

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
