How to update Edge driver in Selenium?

I am trying to automate a site using Selenium.

I need to update the driver. I've searched online for a solution, but I didn't find any solution.

Below is the code for Edge: driver.setbrowser(browserName = 'MicrosoftEdge') driver.setpreference('general.start-edgehtml')
Driver.get("") Please help me with this problem. Thanks! It's recommended to use the latest version of the Edge driver. If you can't use that, you can use the following approach. From the official documentation: There are two possible methods to start an instance of MicrosoftEdge. One is to use a WebDriver session and the other is to start a process. The first method is preferred because it allows the driver to load the MicrosoftEdge instance into memory. This method is available since EdgeHTML 17.

Driver = webdriver.Edge() driver.get("") For EdgeHTML 13 or lower, you will have to start a process to run MicrosoftEdge. # Start a process. From subprocess import call. Process = subprocess.Edge(desiredcapabilities=) driver.get("") driver.quit() For a more detailed solution, you can read the documentation about Edge HTML version.
