Edge App shortcuts being removed from desktop

Copper Contributor

Since updating Windows 10 and Microsoft, when I open a website app from my desktop, the shortcut gets deleted, this is such a shame as I'm a big fan of creating apps from Edge, it used to be my favourite chrome feature.


It's likely a bug causing the issue, but having desktop apps for Edge Web Apps isn't possible with the latest versions so hopefully this is fixed soon

@Zayn- I'm also experiencing the same effect here; what a shame... :(


I'm using EDGE 88.0.705.56 (Officiële build) (64-bits)

Can't find any corresponding option at edge://flags/

is your Windows 10 up to date?

also please make sure sync is fully enabled in Edge and then perform a reset:
