#windows #powershell how to kill zombie Edge session

By | October 31, 2022

Often times I find trying to start Edge on an old data-center jump station and I just click and nothing happens.

This is the direct result of an Edge process that went zombie.

A quick way to kill an Edge session that is acting as a zombie and will not allow you to start a new Edge is from powershell.

Open PowerShell and type

> Stop-process -Name msedge

You can then even start Edge from PowerShell

> start msedge
