    Edge starts when returning from screen saver, etc


    Could someone please tell me, once and for all, how to stop edge from starting when I return from a locked screen. I also don't want it started under ANY circumstances. This is my PC. Not microsoft's. I've tried different things I found on the web and I guess they aren't working. This is very annoying. Please don't try and sell me on Edge. This is my choice and if I choose something other than what Microsoft is shoving down my throat, I should be able to. Right?

    Hi Margaret,

    Microsoft is trying to modernize Windows 10 every update. And in return, we need to change the settings and the places of the options that the customers were familiar before. The screen saver settings can be found by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows + I and press Personalization.
    • Select Lock screen, and then Screen saver settings.
    • From there, you can personalize your screen saver.

    Feel free to contact us if you need assistance with Windows.
