    Annoying popup message from Edge, just started 2 days ago

    Every few hours the Edge shortcut pops up this annoying message that interrupts my work. It says: "Have you customized Microsoft Edge ?" I do not use Edge, I use Firefox. I thought I had stopped all these popups but I can't seem to find this one.

    I don't use Edge, either.:)

    But have you tried this, from the Settings app:

    "System" > "Notifications & Actions" > Scroll down to the "Notifications" section > Disable the “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows” option.

    Someone will correct me if I am wrong about this...

    Thank you. I have switched it off now. Hopefully that's the end of it.
    Good day!

    If you want to keep the tips & suggestions, but want Edge to shut up, just un-pin it from the taskbar. Can't pop-up if it's not there.
