Windows 10: Stop Microsoft edge launching on start up?

    Stop Microsoft edge launching on start up?


    At least I assume it launches on start up since when I try to run ccleaner it says it will have to close edge and is that OK, if I say yes it simply hangs up forever on trying to close it. Does it launch automatically on start up? If so can I prevent this? Its not showing in my start up items BTW.

    same here, this just started few days ago.. every time i start win 10, MS Edge is already open on the desktop, and the page that's open says something about wanting to tell me about new updates or features. i never use Edge so i don't understand why it's always open and running now whenever i start my pc. anyone having this issue?

    I hardly ever use it so I just let CCleaner do it's job.

    Open meaning the browser Edge has launched automatically ? Have you set your browser of choice to be the default ?

    Sounds like Edge may be the Default. Go to Settings/Apps/Default/Web Browser and click your browser of choice.

    After a major update, such as the Fall Creators Update, Edge is supposed to open once on the first boot after the update to tell you what's new. It's always Edge that opens, regardless of your chosen default browser.

    It may be that if you have Edge set to delete all browser history on close it may think it's the first boot every time you start Windows?

    well it's stop for now, miraculously! thanks, no it wasn't set to default or to clear on exit. it would just already be open on that page, when i started win10, and got to the desktop. maybe a sticky key or something causing it while logging on, not sure.. fingers crossed it doesn't come back, thanks!!
