After couple years operating use of Microsoft Edge, it disappears totally.
What ever I do, it will not come up (in pressing a Edge tab, it "blinks" hardly visible a second.
Now, all possible tryings, advised read/handled by/from Windows, community:
Windows Edge is not opening.
There is none more what to do but re-installing Windows 10 (64bit), latest version 1703.
Will Windows assist to have Microsoft Edge re-installed as I see, being only solution, when not wishing to re-install all other softwares
Awaiting solution / proposals
thank you

Other troubleshooting suggestions :

Create another user account with exactly the same privileges.
Logon to the new account.
Does Edge show up ?
If yes, it indicates your old account is corrupted.
Use the new account for a few days to make sure the account is working fine.
After that, go to your old account > backup files you want to keep > delete the old account.
