Currently I'm using the Canary build and I'm wondering if and how I can do a clean install. Browser might've been infected. I don't know but I'd like to make sure.

You can do a clean install by resetting it in Settings.

Here's how you can do a clean install of Microsoft Edge:

Firstly, uninstall Microsoft Edge by the way you do it for applications in your OS.

When this dialog box appears, check-mark the "Also clear your browsing data?" option and then uninstall Microsoft Edge.

 

  • Then, if you want to install the stable version of Microsoft Edge, you can download it from the link here. 
  • If you want to install the Insider Channels of Microsoft Edge, you can download it from the link here. 
  • If you want to download the MSI installer/business Microsoft Edge, you can download it from the link here.
