I think I may be missing something obvious here. I have Edge that came with windows and there is also an Edge app.
What is the difference?
Do I need both?
I am sure I had both at one time and it got uninstalled as I can install it from the Store. If I click on the link in apps it opens my normal version but the icon is blank and unchangeable
