But if the commands work for other browsers, I wonder if the first step should be a reinstallation of the browser.-
The answer to that question would be a definitive, "Yes," were we talking about a third-party browser program, e.g., Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi, Firefox, that the end-user installed.
When it comes to "shipped with Windows" it is possible to uninstall/reinstall or de-register/re-register specific apps, but it is, to me, a grand PITA to do so and requires comfort with either Command Prompt or PowerShell and using complex commands with switches, which many do not have.
Hence the reason I have folks use built-in utilities that are a lot more straightforward and, to be perfectly honest, more difficult to screw up, whether the person using them can see or not.
Since Edge is shipped with Windows . . .

Always remember that computers are just glorified light bulbs - they rarely fail in continuous use and usually go pop when turned off and on.
