    Hi @alex zhao ,
    Thanks for posting in Microsoft Q&A.

    You could try the following methods one by one and check if the issue persists.

    • What version of the Edge are you using? Please try to upgrade to the latest version by entering "edge://settings/help" in the address bar. 
    • Clear cache and cookies in Edge
    • Try to create a new profile and check if the issue persists.
    • Repair Microsoft Edge: 
      Navigate to Windows Settings> Apps > Installed apps > search "Edge" >click 3 dots in the right and select "Modify".
    • Delete the subfolders under path: "C:\Users{YOUR_USER}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge"
      The folder will be automatically recreated after the browser is opened again.
