How to fix Microsoft Edge crash issues on Windows 10 builds

It looks like Windows 10 build 14942 for computers was released for Insiders on Fast Ring. The new update that is currently rolling out is also part of the Redstone 2 update and comes with some small improvements, fixes, and features.

Unfortunately, it seems that some users who have already installed Windows 10 build 14942 on their computers are reporting that Microsoft Edge keeps crashing every time they try to open it. Microsoft hasn’t included this issue on their list of known issues yet, but we’re pretty sure they will soon.

However, until Microsoft finds the problem and fixes it, we have a workaround that will allow you to keep using Microsoft Edge Browser without any problems:

  • Hold down Windows key + R to open run command
  • Type regedit and click “OK” to open the Registry
  • When the registry opens, go to ComputerHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesLocal SettingsSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionAppContainerStoragemicrosoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbweChildren
  • Once you get there, you will need to delete all the folders found within the “Children” folder (make sure NOT to delete the “Children” folder
  • After deleting all the subfolders, close the Registry and you can use Microsoft Edge Browser without any problem.

We’re still not sure when exactly Microsoft will release a fix that will solve this problem, but since the fix is ​​so easy, we suggest you do so or else you won’t be able to navigate through Microsoft Edge for a couple of days.

Have you installed Windows 10 build 14942 on your computer? Did the solution we mentioned above work for you? What other problems have you encountered?
