    This tutorial will help you reset any metro style application, this includes Cortana and Microsoft Edge

    1. Open Windows Explorer (Windows Key + e)
    2. Navigate to C:\Users\<username>\Appdata\Local\Packages
      1. Shortcut: Type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages in the address bar
    3. The folders should be in the format Publisher.Application.ID locate the folder for the application you wish to reset, right click and rename it. I tend to just append .old
    4. Open an elevated powershell prompt (Press Windows Key, type powershell, right click "Windows Powershell" and select Run as Administrator
    5. Type Get-AppxPackage -name "*MicrosoftEdge*" | ForEach { "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppxManifest.xml" | Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register }
    Replace the text in between "* *" with your application you are resetting -name "*MicrosoftEdge*"
    Your application should now be reset.
