moderated Re: how to get rid of Edge in start up?

Most things in the startup don't need to be there, like Office for example.
Many programs put something into the startup to make them open faster when
initially opened.
All you really need in startup are any anti virus/malware programs and any
access technology.
Anything else slows bootup and is taking some resources.

If you go to task manager and to the start up tab you can disable such
things as Microsoft edge from starting.

How do I get rid of this intrusion?

This is in no way, shape, or form "normal behavior." I don't have any
idea what's coming up, but if you have the opportunity to get sighted
assistance or use a service like Be My Eyes to have a look at what's
going on if the screen reader is not making it easy to figure out I'd
suggest going that route.

I have never seen Edge "starting automatically" such that it presents
a window and a webpage, whether at system startup or otherwise. I
would be very curious to know what's actually occurring here.
