Microsoft Edge closes every 2 seconds

Last night, I downloaded and installed Win 10 on my PC, so I wanted to try out Microsoft Edge. However, after several tries, it seems that I cannot open it without the app closing on itself after 2 seconds (automatically does that). I did not get an error message so I have no idea what is going on.

Update your Windows 10 to a new version
Click Check for updates in Settings.

  1. Start Microsoft Edge .
  2. Click the Menu button in the top right corner and choose Settings.
  3. Under Open with section select A specific page or pages , select Custom from the menu and enter the web address of your new start page.
  4. After you do that, close Edge, turn on your Internet connection and check if the problem is resolved.
    it may fix your problem

That’s quite peculiar, the easiest one is going with alternatives such as Chrome or Firefox, Edge is an unpopular choice for frequent browsing platform as it get less development but if you’re insist to try it out, here’s what I can suggest, by resetting the browser, it will remove your history, cookies, and any settings you might have changed. You’ll find these options in Settings > Apps > Microsoft Edge > Advanced options .

Hi @Romario,

If the above suggestion not helpful try to reinstall Microsoft edge. Follow this article it has clear explanation How To Reinstall Microsoft Edge In Windows 10.

To make Microsoft Edge a faster, smoother browsing experience, it was designed to use the latest technologies. If the website you are trying to view uses older technologies, such as certain types of frames or ActiveX controls, it won’t display correctly in Edge.

Rather than displaying a broken page, or not displaying it at all, Edge directs you to Internet Explorer so that you can view the page in a browser that still supports those older technologies. Also ensure that flash player is enabled.

Try the below steps to enables Adobe flash Player in Microsoft edge.

  1. Open Microsoft edge and click on ‘’ ” button.

  2. Go to settings and turn on Adobe Flash Player .

If Microsoft Edge only crashes after some time has passed, try deleting cached data and files. In Microsoft Edge, select the “…” icon in the top right corner and choose Settings . Under Clear browsing data, select Choose what to clear and then cached data and files.

I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it resolves the issue.
