There have been so many changes and additions to Windows 10, I can't keep track of them all.  I ran into an issue with Microsoft Edge opening the startup tabs but not loading the pages and being completely unresponsive.  After a quick search, I discovered Repair/Reset was added with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) and it is easy to use.
  • Click Start (Windows icon) > the Settings icon and select Apps > Apps and Features.
  • Scroll down to Microsoft Edge & click it.  
  • Select Advanced options.
  • Try Repair first and if that doesn't work, select Reset.

In my case, Repair didn't work but Reset did.  The only thing I had to do after the repair was to re-activate the extensions.

i would like to use Edge more on my pc, but it is just too slow - and there are still website incompatibility problems.

MSFT really needs to rip Edge out the OS and make it stand alone.

ps: I do use it as default pdf viewer. VERY nice at doing that.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
