How do I stop Edge from running in the background. I've looked in settings/apps and don't see edge listed but I've turned off all apps. That said, every time I stop Edge manually it always seems to start up again with out my consent and there 7 instances of it running.

I don't like Edge, I don't want Edge............How can I just disable that piece of crap?

I have never had issue with this, it is not and has never been running in the background.
I followed C141 instructions, and Edge is NOT list in the Back ground list.

bassfisher,
What version of Windows 10 are you running?
Are you up to date with ALL of Windows 10 updates?
