    Microsoft Edge launches when I turn on my computer


    I don't use Microsoft Edge and it is not the default browser on my computer, but it is launching everytime I turn on my computer or reboot, and I can't find a setting to change that.

    Microsoft Edge not working

    Hi William,

    The issue you are experiencing may have something to do with the Windows components of your computer. With that said, we will be performing some troubleshooting steps to isolate the cause of this problem. Before we proceed, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Are you getting any error messages when launching Microsoft Edge? If so, can you send us a screenshot? Make sure that you remove all personal information.
    • What is the current version and build number of your computer? To get the information, kindly follow the steps below:
      • Click on the Start menu.
      • Type winver.
      • Press Enter.
    In the meantime, we suggest that you boot the computer in Safe Mode with Networking. This will start your Windows in a basic state, using a limited set of files and drivers. It also includes the network drivers and services you'll need to access the Internet.
    Please follow the steps provided on this link. Once in Safe Mode, please try to launch Microsoft Edge and check
    if you will still experience the same issue.

    Please post back with the result for further assistance.
