    Edge Update Task Scheduler


    I know that Google Chrome does this, but this is the one feature about Chromium browsers that I hate. There are two tasks created that are meant to update Edge--which is good--but I don't like the fact that they run at a certain time for the duration of one day; however, I don't know what I would need to change in the schedules to make it so that Edge will update normally but not run in the background constantly. Any suggestions?

    Settings > Privacy > Background apps

    Turn off Edge, and anything else in the list you don't want.

    I don't have Edge as an option, but I also have "Let apps run in the background" disabled.

    I personally turn the scheduled tasks off.

    If I want to check for updates to Edge, I enter edge://settings/help in the address box.

    If there is an update, it will trigger the update process.

    I did that, but I got the "Update is underway..." loop. Unless your link takes me somewhere different than going to Help and feedback > About Microsoft Edge.

    Nope.

    As mentioned, that's how I update Edge.

    Okay, so that doesn't work for me then. Again, I get the update loop that I mentioned.

    So let it update.

    If there is no update, nothing happens.

    Not sure if it's too late for a follow-up questions, but here goes nothing: If I delete the tasks, will my extensions still get updated? By the way, I marked this as solved because when I deleted the tasks and ran the update check in Edge, it didn't do the loop. I probably did something out of order that corrupted the program. Either way, that issue is fixed.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Edge just updated to the latest version ending in .64, so it's working with the tasks deleted.
