OS
Windows 11 Pro Version 23H2
I have Edge, EdgeCore, EdgeUpdate and EdgeWebView. The folders are 658M, 1,026M, 108M and 638M.

It gives me a total of 2,374M. It seems to me that it's a loss of HD space as I don't use Edge.

I don't recommend you remove EDGE, but here's how... steps #2 and #3




It's much smarter to just block it in your firewall.
Block these two items. That will stop EDGE. BUT... if you ever need it, it'll be there.

And... Microsoft won't send these guys after you...

Note: If 2.3GB is too big... "You're gonna need a bigger boat". :D

    Still assembled, still runs. Haven't turned it on for 13 years?
Many thanks, I'll give it a look tomorrow.
