Reset Microsoft Edge in Windows 10: - The new version of windows released by Microsoft It has made several changes in terms of functionality and applications. One of the important applications is the new web browser, Microsoft Edge. While it provides a faster browsing experience and has improved performance, some bugs have been found recently. Occasionally, on some systems, the welcome page is found to appear quite frequently without users' consent. Also, most of you would have encountered other problems such as blocking web pages, strange aspects of the toolbar, menu settings and frequent pop-ups. I would have tried to completely uninstall the program. But then, that's not possible with Microsoft Edge, although it might work with all other browsers.
