Good morning.
I am unable to delete Edge from processes even when I have closed the application.

I entered the registry keys as advised on the web, but Edge still stays in the processes, and it also reset itself in autorun.
Some idea?
Thank you

If you don't use EDGE, you can just remove it. If you ever want it back, just download and install it.



I removed EDGE back in Nov 2021, and haven't had any problems.

BUT... I'm on a local account, and I don't use Outlook, Cortana, Widgets or News & Interests.
So I can't say if it will affect them or not.
