By navigating to the About Edge section, available within the browser’s settings, you can view the currently installed browser version. Else, check out our guide to learn about this process in detail.
You can either reinstall the Edge browser on your system, by uninstalling and then installing the latest version of Edge. Or, update the browser from the edge://settings/help page.
