    Edge pre-launch and lots of Google processes

    My 83 year old brother emailed me with a couple of questions about Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome in Windows 10 Home.
    The first question was about Edge pre-launching which I directed him to Option Two, Step 3 of @Brink tutorial on this page.
    Enable or Disable Microsoft Edge Pre-launching in Windows 10
    The second query he has is that in Task Manager he has twelve Google Chromes processes "running" although as far as the Taskbar is concerned Chrome is not running.

    Any ideas as to why this might be and how to solve it?

    OK so, no replies! Don't bother just uninstalled Google Chrome, he just won't use it. Thanks for the multitude of help offers on here.
