I just tried to add Microsoft Edge to the list of available browsers to preview with in Expression Web - it let me add it to the list but Edge doesn't launch when I choose it.

I had to add the Edge Executable file to my list of Malwarebytes AntiExploit Shields.  I found the EXE at:

C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe

I tried finding the file using File Explorer, but I think it's a hidden/system file, so you may have to enable viewing hidden/system files to find it.

Hope this helps.

According to this article http://www.windowsnews.in/2015/09/how-to-uninstall-default-apps-in.html Edge cannot be uninstalled.

I also have not been able to get Edge to launch.  I click on the icon and nothing happens.  It opens when I search from Cortana, so it's there, but it does not appear in my apps list.  How do I fix this?

Thanks for helping me find the browser; however, like several others here, I can click on it, but it doesn't launch. It worked fine before the November update a few days ago.
