  1. Where is the Microsoft Edge's Start Menu shortcut located?


    So I want to change the Start Menu Tile background colour for Microsoft Edge. By default, it has blueish tile background. I want blackish/greyish tile background.

    Let me explain my need with the help of this screenshot:

    Where is the Microsoft Edge's Start Menu shortcut located? [​IMG]


    See how Microsoft Edge's tile is blueish while for others, it's greyish? I want even Microsoft Edge's tile colour to be greyish.

    Now I came across this article which explains how to change background color of Start Menu tiles. I have created the required MicrosoftEdge.visualelementsmanifest.xml inside "C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe". But I am unable to reload the tile cache since I don't know Edge's shortcut's location -- a crucial requirement to reload the tile cache. Without reloading the tile cache, the tile background change isn't being reflected.

    So kindly help me with Microsoft Edge's Start Menu shortcut's location.

    :)

    Attempting to remove EDGE from the Start menu alphabetical listing


    The shortcut is not listed in the start menu folders...

    And I'm surprised you see Edge at all if you've done as suggested..

    Edge disappeared and start menu not working on Windows 10

    Hello Richard,

    We need to do further investigation on your concern so that we can isolate the issue regarding Microsoft Edge and Start menu:

    • Have you tried to searching in Cortana search to check if Edge can be located?
    • Besides powershell, what other troubleshooting steps have you performed?

    In the meantime, you can download and run the
    Windows apps troubleshooter to isolate the issue on Edge.

    We also suggest that you download and run the
    Start Menu troubleshooter to fix common Start menu issues.

    We will wait for your response.

    Regards.

    How to pin shortcut to start menu.

    At first, you can create a shortcut in your Programs folder
    (in a hidden folder C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs). The shortcut appears in
    All apps list. Then you can pin it to Start menu / Taskbar as Mayank Gupta10 suggested.

    The common way is to create a shortcut on the Desktop.
    But the more elegant way is creating Custom toolbars.
