    Okay. I set google as default search and typed a query into the search box and the results opened in google as expected. There is no sign of Bing.

    I didn't get the point! The video just shows "QWANT" SE as default SE in Edge (by typing in address bar, not the search box on NTP, you should lead to the QWANT SE result page, it shows on video too! So far so right!).

    Right click has no "Search" entry. With a registry trick you can remove both of them (not only the Bing!!! M$ says if you don't want my "Bing" you must remove any other SE on my "Edge"!!! A matter of "Bing" or "Nothing"

    I didn't understand how the main problem solved (by type in search box on NTP go to the default SE result page not Bing, and by changing the registry value just remove "Bing" entry in right click not the other one which is default SE defined by user in "Edge"?!

    You have set "Search on new tabs uses..." option to "Address bar", change it to "Sear box (Recommended)" and see the result(!).

    Video just shows that it is possible to set start page and new tab page to Qwant or anything else including blank page. (If an extension is used. Also it show search with bing removed from the context menu.

    As for your suggested settings I can get bing search to work if I set it like that but why would I want to do that when I don't want to use bing search. I can only enable that by disabling an extension.

    If you don't want to use an extension then I guess you're stuck with some bing stuff.

    All of things you are trying to show with no "Bing" is by the help of an Extension I said I want it without "Extension"!
    I know there is at least 3 Extensions about "New Blank Tab" and SE customization in Edge Add-ons page.

    Microsoft trying to show Edge as new and modern browser, but they are showing the IE with a new theme!
    The only reason I switched from FF to Edge was keep the PC more lite and get rid of about 800MB sizes of FF (extra size on C drive) and have a more integrated ecosystem instead of installing third-party app for any purpose!

    I know. You already said that you won't use an extension and I said that in that case you're stuck.

    As for Firefox consider using RAM cache only if you don't want it taking up space. Downside is that previously visited sites won't load from cache. For me that is a bonus. (Privacy reasons).

    Anyway if space is an issue you can use a portable browser of your choice and run it from USB (or external drive) and get rid of all installed browsers but it would be wise to keep Edge as removal might possiblty break windows updates installation if a cumulative update targets Edge.

    I prefer to keep disk cache empty.

    I agree with you (about FF and privacy).

    I have a Sony 64GB flash memory (it has not good enough speed) and just has 10% free space (to work OK, and rest of it is full of fixed data which I'm using day to day), somehow it works as an external hard for me. I don't use PAs (=portable apps) since 2016 (I think!) and as I know they have their problem too (for ex. I'm using AviDemux and FFMPEG as portable but AD sometimes has problem to convert video, but when I install it and use it as an installer version it has no problem (I was a big fan of PAs and I had a PAs dedicated flash, I am using very few of them yet).

    Another important thing about Edge! They (MS) are doing good job about browser backup (and they are tying to do bad job about "Bing"). For me most important things are "Pass", "Fav" and "Flags". The Pass and Fav backup have a direct way (you can do it directly from Edge), but "Flags", I use Snip & Sketch to get SS (I use local account and don't use sync option, and probably I would never use it, that works for me).
