How to Fix Microsoft Edge not Start in Windows 10

My computer is running window 10 latest update everyday even-though I can't open Microsoft Edge although I try restart computer or open Edge in program folder. If you were running Chrome, Firefox or Opera when met similar issues, you should try to uninstall and reinstall it again to resolve the problem. However, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge is part of Windows 10. It's nearly impossible to uninstall, and even if you could, you might run into different issues.

I try to find the solution from any website or YouTube or forum i found what to do it. So please follow step by step bellow.

1) Show hidden file. Open Control Panel -> File Explorer Options. Click on View Tap of Folder Options window Choose Show hidden files, folders, and drives and un-check Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

2) Open File Explorer and go to location C:\Users\UseYourUsername\AppData\Local\Packages. Try to delete folder "Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe

3) Restart your Computer.4) Now, we are going to re-register Microsoft Edge again. Open the Start menu, search for Windows PowerShell, and Run as administrator.5) Type the command ( cd C:\Users\your user name\ ) and hit Enter
And type the following command
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

If the process was completed successfully, you would see a message similar to this one:

6) Restart your computer one more time, and then you should be able to run Microsoft Edge again.
