    [Win 10 1607 x64] Edge settings keep resetting to default

    We are testing Windows 10 on 40 computers and have at least two that keeping losing Edge settings (resets to default). One seems to lose them every time it is patched. The other loses the settings at random and sometimes several times in a day. Is this a known issue that has a fix?

    It is an issue that I encountered several times with 1607. 1703 seems a bit more stable with Edge being less likely to become corrupted. The fix I used in 1607 was:

    1. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages
    2. Remove the Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe directory (you may need to log out and log back in prior to this step if the directory will not delete due to being in use)
    3. Restart the computer
    4. Open PowerShell in elevated mode (Run as administrator)
    5. Run the following command:
      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}
