New Edge is a different Edge. Only compatible with Windows 7 in a virtual mode.

When you reinstalled Windows 7 (note the fact that it's no longer supported), MS says you have to do the following to use Edge.

Prerequisites

For Windows 8.1, there are no prerequisites to apply this update.

For Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you must have the following updates installed before you apply this update. If you use Windows Update, these updates will be offered automatically as needed.

Installation information

To keep your browser secure and up to date, you are asked to accept automatic updates. By clicking Accept and get started you enable Microsoft Edge to update automatically so that you can always have the latest improvements. These updates are independent of your Windows update settings.

Windows 7 support ended on January 14, 2020. Although Microsoft Edge helps keep your device helps secure on the web, your device may still be vulnerable to security risks. We recommend that you move to a supported operating system.
Restart information

You must restart your device after you apply this update.
