    It has defaulted to MS IE and I can't find an option to recover. My wife's account on the same PC still retains the Edge Browser, any ideas please.

    First we need to delete the corrupt edge folder. The path => C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe

    Delete the "Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe" Folder

    You may not able to delete the folder itself and 2 or 3 files. but it does'nt matter. Select the folder, Hit Delete, Then if it asks for admin privileges, Just hit skip and then ok . Restart the computer.

    Then Launch Powershell as administrator and run the following command. Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

    Hit enter and once the command is executed, Quit powershell and restart the computer to complete the process.

    The edge browser will be back and running in all its glory.
