Like in IE we use rundll32.exe for clearing cache and cookies.

For Latest version of Edge I tried using this path : LocalAppData\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default.

In this path I tried deleting the cookies file but issue is that after deleting the file when I manually try to clear cookies from browser it still shows all the cookies..

What can I do to clear cookies from Edge(ver 96 +)

    Hi @17383778,

    Based on what has been mentioned, I did a simple test on it, and I found that deleting %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Cookies is indeed effective, but you need to disable this feature Allow sites to save and read cookie data (recommended), like this:

    Hope this can help.

    Best regards,
