    Edge takes up huge amounts of memory


    At times my computer bogs down horribly.* Loading Taskmanager, which can take several minutes, shows Edge taking up 1gb of memory (more or less).* It is usually 100mb or so.
    I have two other computers using Edge, and they seem fine.
    Is there any fix for this?

    :)

  2. Edge won't let me change my default browser?

    Hi yea edge has total control. really thinking of uninstalling plus not much faster then other browsers. at times takes up a huge amount of memory. have to close which sucks, becuz gaming online then so messes up wha doing then ;-( Made another browser
    default but "EDGE" still takes control. It can not stop updating which seems to do at wrong time, while gaming online. why like to get updates myself but "Microsoft" won't let me now, whew.

    Edge takes up huge amounts of memory

    Grab Sysinternals Process Explorer and run it to see which sub-process is killing CPU cycles. You can go in and tweak Cortana, so that it is not sending data to Bing.com, along with settings in System that deals with Telemetry. Windows Sysinternals: Documentation, downloads and additional resources

    The other is do not log in with the email for a Live account. Use a standard Local network type account. Lastly move over to maybe Firefox or Chrome, which you have a lot better security options to help restrict what Flash and Javascript can do to keep Pop-overs and such from killing your browsing sessions.
