    Windows Chromium Edge update frustration


    I am running windows 10 home on an older Dell laptop. Edge is on 90.0.818.66 64 bit. The issue is it constantly checks for updates whether running or not. Consumes HD and memory. When Edge does open and I go to about, it says "checking for updates". I then get like 3 or 4 OK to make changes to system messages I say OK and get error 0x800004002. And change then repair from control panel errors out. Help says to download new version but you can't! It just says start... Only download I found was Edge enterprise but I don't want to gunk things up more. Bad enough to deal with windows update hangs and failures, now Edge! Can I force download then install the latest consumer version? Or how can I clean out this update fiasco? Any help appreciated. Thanks

    :)
     

  2. Edge Chromium

    Hi All,

    * We have installed edge chromium 84.0.522.63 offline installer and it has upgraded the inbuilt microsoft edge.

    * Current edge chromium 84.0.522.63 got upgraded automatically after an update edg chromium 86.0.622.38 has got installed from windows update.

    *But this time once the update got installed, it has created duplicate edge chromium shortcut on the task bar.





    *we have unpinned the second one manually but after restart it has come back again.



    *One thing we noticed it that, when we launch the edge (edge chromium) browser, the duplicate edge chromium shortcut on the task bar is getting removed by itself..





    *but once the device is restarted, we can see the edge chromium duplicate shortcut is back.

    we can see inconsistent behaviors here with the edge chromium.

    *Please check and help about how to get this duplicate task bar edge chromium shortcut removed permanently.

    Edge Chromium, the Reading List

    on the Edge feedback forum at

    I have posed the following question in response to an existing thread

    I wanted to ask this more pointed question:-

     

    Will the mooted "offline" Reading List feature that was included in Edge HTML but never fully activated be added to Edge Chromium?

    (I did get one reply to a question I posed, I think back in 2015,on the promised offline capability that reply said simply and unequivocably

    ""At this time, the reading list is not available offline in Microsoft Edge, but we’re working on it for a future update"

     

    In my opinion it is a pretty useless add on anyway. because in EdgeHTML it does nothing that adding a URL to the Favorites list already does and now tht Edge Chromium sensibly includes an Internet Exploder like facility to Save a webpage complete you can
    save the whole webpage for off line viewing i.e.reading anyway
