OK let's try it.
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Okay, please right-click on your start menu and select Windows PowerShell (Admin)

Once that is up, type (or copy and paste) the following code:

Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}

OK. Prompt is C:/Users/
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Okay, after you typed the above code and pressed Enter, you will get the same C:/Users/ prompt again. After that you can close Windows PowerShell and restart your computer. When it comes back, please try to open Edge again, if it still is not working we will need to continue the process and make a new User.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
