Reinstalling the Edge browser in Windows 10 does not cause data loss

Please reinstall the Edge browser when you feel the browser is slow, not open, unresponsive, tabs crash frequently or show any other errors. Here's how to reinstall Edge in Windows 10 without losing data.

Microsoft has recently released a stable version of the new Chromium-based Edge web browser for Windows 10 and other platforms. The new Chromium-based Edge browser looks natural and works more or less like Google Chrome.

When it comes to reliability, the new Microsoft Edge scores higher, thanks to Chromium. But like any other software, it is not without problems.

If you have problems with the Edge browser, you can try resetting Edge to the default settings. If resetting the browser doesn't help, you can reinstall the Edge browser to fix the problem. Unlike the older version of Edge, the Chromium-based Edge browser can be reinstalled.

The best thing about Chromium-based Edge is that you can reinstall the browser without losing data. That is, you can retain your browsing history, passwords and favorites / bookmarks while reinstalling the Edge browser.

However, it is worth noting that data will not be stored when you reinstall Edge in macOS. Therefore, only users on Windows operating systems can reinstall Edge without losing data.
