    Right click Edge Tile and switch off Live tile.
    The Edge processes take a while, like minutes to stop.

    More generally
    Settings > Privacy > Background apps > Scroll down to MS Edge and Off, you may as well go down the very long list and only have On what you want.

    There is another setting somewhere, forgotten exactly, to do with pre-emptive downloading of websites you might visit.
    I think that is right at the bottom of the Advanced Edge options, Page prediction > Off, or it might be the Cortana assist > Off.
    Those are my settings anyway.

    It's self explanatory, user choice. You do the experimentation.
