    Hoping someone can assist with an Edge issue on a Toshiba laptop running Windows Home.

    Edge has all of a sudden stopped launching. Following the direction on another thread on this amazing site, went into Task Manager and ended task on Edge. That worked .... once....

    Now, Edge will open just the first time, but opens up 15-20 Edge background processes. If you try to close normally using upper right-hand corner, Edge won't close. You have to got into Task Manager each time. And when you do, again, it opens 15-20 Edge background processes

    If this was another browser, I'd probably just install and reinstall, but that's not an option with Edge.

    Any suggestions?

    :)

    Windows 10 Task Manager Applications Tab Didappeared

    Figured it out. Open task manager and click to sort by name. Then it groups by the names which then groups it by Apps and then background processes. Makes it more clear when trying to close apps instead of processes.

    Make sure you have the last firmware version inside. Close all background applications and close all open (not necessary) processes. Use a simple theme, with low graphics... Not much more to do!
