Resetting Microsoft Edge Browser

Resetting Microsoft Edge Browser

Sometimes Microsoft’s Edge browser simple does not work properly. Web sites fail to load, web apps do not work properly and in general Edge3 causes more trouble than its worth. That’s when Firefox & Google Chrome can be saviors.

If you are experiencing any or other issues with Edge, than you can try this fix.

WARNING – resetting a browser may result in data loss, including the loss of favorites, settings, browser history, installed extensions, or other things maintained in the browser
