I had an issue for a customer this week where Microsoft Edge had suddenly disappeared from their machine.

Running the Get-AppxPackage PowerShell cmdlet confirmed that the universal application was still installed on the machine:

Get-AppxPackage | where Name -like *MicrosoftEdge*

So Microsoft Edge was still on the machine and fortunately, PowerShell came to the rescue.

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

This successfully reinstalled Microsoft Edge and restored its functionality!

Cheers

Sam
