This new and innovative browser that Windows 10 has brought us in its update, being very new this could present some failures and we recommend that you Configure Microsoft Edge so you do not have any inconvenience. For this we recommend that you restore its default values, since they are the ones that almost never have failures.

To have the default values of the browser you can go directly to the browser settings and there you will be able to set the default options that it brings and we will see that its operation is normal.

  • Among the many options you will see, you will go for the Reset to default to return to the way it was at the beginning.

  • Go to the Microsoft folder, to access this you must go to the C drive of your computer go to the ‘Users’ folder and then the user folder, then go to ‘AppData’, select the local folder and finally Microsoft.
  • Inside this we will see important folders and this is also where we will see the ‘Edge, Edge beta and other’ browser folders. All these we will have to delete and then open Edge Chromium and you will see that everything will be and working normally with its initial values.

Using PowerShell

For those who do not know what PowerShell is, it can help us to reset the browser settings. This CMD-like program is a platform that provides task solutions by executing command lines like CMD does and works for compilation jobs, system administration and more.

MicrosoftEdge…’ folder.

After you have deleted all the data contained in the folder and you will open PowerShell running it as administrator we will have to place the following code to make all the data is deleted and Microsoft Edge is re-registered as new. After this restart the computer:

For Microsoft the fact of wanting to innovate with its Edge Chromium browser is a way to draw the user’s attention to take use of it. Thanks to the open source code base of Chromium, it has been able to improve its visual interface and configuration options.

But even so, using Chromium brings with it compatibility errors and configurations that must be improved and fixed to be better and better. However, here we show you the problems and how to fix them:

  • One of the most common problems is the excessive amount of memory that can use this browser, we recommend that you enter your settings and delete unnecessary data such as cache file or the same Edge Chromium history.
  • One of the most common problems that all browsers have is that web pages often do not load. For this first check your connection, if you have connection, it is Edge Chromium that presents the problem, you can do as explained in the previous point or simply restart and check if it is working well. 
  • If you start using Edge Chromium and you need your bookmarks from another browser, you can import them because it has an option in manage favorites that will allow you to bring everything you have saved in another browser. Looking in settings and in the Favorites panel we will see this option.
  • If you are having problems with your passwords in the browser it may be that the problem is the Cookies or cache. You can solve it by going into Settings and deleting unnecessary data from the browser.
  • If the problem is that the browser opens when you turn it on, this may be because it is the default browser. For this we advise you to learn how to prevent Microsoft Edge from starting automatically.
