Expert:  KamilAnwar1 replied 1 year ago.
No problem. We can continue here then. What is the exact message you're getting when you try to run edge and what type is your user account setup (standard or admin)?

Navigate to the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\SystemCreate a DWORD value if it doesn’t already exist called FilterAdministratorTokenSet the value to 1Next we need to navigate to the registry and make an additional change:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\UIPI\Change the Default string key to 0x00000001(1)Also, in addition to the above, make sure your User Account Control Setting is set to the third level from the bottom. To get to UAC, go to your Windows 10 search and type uac. It should come up as “Change User Account Control Settings“. Finally, restart Windows and then you will be able to use Edge under your Built-in Administrator account
