So I just updated to the new Edge. Why have all my Start pinned website tiles turned to some ugly system color tile, with a tiny icon in the middle? The icon was the entire tile prior to this upgrade. I'm assuming this is some bug, please tell me this is not intentional! Can already feel my OCD kicking in, all the time I put into pinning them, and laying them out in a visually pleasing manor....

@HotCakeX Yes, that look is awful. I sure hope they reconsider if this is intentional.
And while I'm here, where is the option to pin to start? Last April or so, when the question was asked in here, it was stated it was coming, but in the meantime, we could use "Install as app" as a work around. But that experience was pretty awful, so I was just holding off for the pin to start option to be added. I assumed we never saw it Canary as it may conflict with classic Edge pinning, but still not seeing the option to pin to start in the released version is disappointing as well. Is it possible to uninstall the new Edge? (I haven't looked yet, but will check shortly) Maybe down the line, these options will be restored and I'll reinstall.

Yes you can uninstall it
you're right there is no separate option added to Pin a website only to start menu, however there are these options on canary channel

@HotCakeX Thanks HotCakeX, on second thought, I'm worried uninstalling will not revert my tiles, and just end up breaking them all even further (if someone has uninstalled new Edge, and their pinned website tiles went back to their original look and worked fine, please let me know!). For now I'll try to adjust, and pin to start via first pinning to taskbar, then pin that to start. It's an awful lot of steps for something that used to be so easy though....
At least the tile icons now make me feel like I'm back in the good ole' days of Windows 95 :) (trying to find a positive, even if a very weak one, lol)
