    Google Chrome not working after creators update

    Edge starts but then crashes and closes (I hate Edge. When will MS ever bring out a decent browser?). Chrome will run eventually if I keep re-starting it and then it works OK until I close it. Even MS wouldn't sabotage a major alternative. Would they?

  3. edge does respond when clicked

    I have a harder time closing Edge than opening. Wonder if you have Edge already running in the background that didn't close properly? Might want to check CTrl Alt Del and go into task Manager to see if anything is running.

    MS Edge runs in the background when Closed ..

    Right click Edge Tile and switch off Live tile.
    The Edge processes take a while, like minutes to stop.

    More generally
    Settings > Privacy > Background apps > Scroll down to MS Edge and Off, you may as well go down the very long list and only have On what you want.

    There is another setting somewhere, forgotten exactly, to do with pre-emptive downloading of websites you might visit.
    I think that is right at the bottom of the Advanced Edge options, Page prediction > Off, or it might be the Cortana assist > Off.
    Those are my settings anyway.

    It's self explanatory, user choice. You do the experimentation.
