If you find that the New Tab Customize Option or Page Settings wheel is missing in Microsoft Edge on Windows 11/10, just do this. I faced this issue and this is how I resolved it.
New Tab Customize Option missing in Edge

- Reset Microsoft Edge
- Check your Hosts file.

You may need to edit the Hosts file.
So open your Hosts file using Notepad which is located at:
If you see this entry, delete it. You may use HostsMan to edit the Hosts file, or simply remove it via Notepad.
If you are unsure, you may simply reset Hosts to its default format.
Having done that, restart Edge and see. It should be back!
