    Is this a UWP? and will this WU version replace the manual download I did two days ago from their website? or is it exactly the same regardless where I get it from?

    Not bothered whether I have old or new edge as I use Firefox mainly but shouldn’t this be coming through windows update by now? It’s been out long enough. Neither of our home machines have been offered it yet

    New Edge and Edge Update are both listed as programs in my portable Geek Uninstaller. Every time Edge updates, the install date for Edge and Edge Update changes (within Geek) to that date. I suspect Edge Update is needed. Admittedly this is supposition as I can't find any info about Edge Update on the web.

    Question about this? Am I ever going to see this offered via Windows Update if I've already downloaded the new Edge (currently sitting at v83.0.478.44) standalone?
