Microsoft forces users to adopt Edge on Windows 10



Microsoft is forcing users to adopt Edge on Windows 10. The Redmond-based firm has just passed a milestone in the practice of forced updates with its browser. The latest update goes so far as to install Edge without the users' knowledge.



A window that occupies the entire screen, no way to remove it, software that I never installed or wanted that appears on my desktop, in my taskbar and that anticipates the launch of my next web page. Yes, it all looks like malware in its own right and most users would immediately launch an antivirus program to be sure.

But that's just not the case. The application that gets into your installation here is not obscure malware, only Microsoft Edge. This is because the American manufacturer tries to force users to choose Edge as their default browser via an automatic update. When starting their PC, many users were surprised to see Edge installed without their knowledge.

A new twist in the art of forced updates

The surprise doesn't end there. Once you arrive on the desktop, an Edge pop-up window occupies the entire screen, inviting you to exit your current browser for Edge. There is no way to stop the process, no cross or cancel. You must click on "Let's get started" to hope to get to the end.

At this point, the user is pleasantly surprised to see a shortcut to Edge on their desktop and another in the top position on the taskbar. To top it all off, Edge cannot be uninstalled after this update. Unsurprisingly, many users have expressed their dissatisfaction on social networks.

The Windows update forces a Microsoft Edge window in full screen, which cannot be closed from the taskbar, or CRTL W, or even ALT F4. You have to click on "Start", then click on X, and even there, a welcome screen appears. And it clings to the taskbar.

In response, Microsoft reminds us that it is always possible to say no to its recurring invitations. Saying no, however, is tantamount to forcing Edge to close and restoring your default browser. But yes, it is possible to say no.

BLOGGER:
  1. Edge replaces Explorer, so not really an addition but more of a substitution (Explorer coming with the OS, just like Edge from now on). I got the update yesterday with the arrival of Edge, it doesn't prevent me from using my usual browser (Brave).
    You could also state the Chrome highlighting when you're on a Google page prompting you to download their browser and/or set it as the default browser.

  2. ith the latest update, Edge Chromium (which now replaces Edge) is no longer uninstallable. This is because the OS needs a browser, and Edge Chromium is the new basic browser for Windows 10.
    But it doesn't bother anyone that you can't uninstall Safari on MacOS.

    In the end, Firefox users have to remove Edge Chromium from the taskbar (that's still 2 clicks!!!). Those who use Chrome, they should replace it with Edge Chromium.

    Microsoft has done a very good job with this browser, they put it forward, but there will always be haters. Too bad Phonandroid tries to pass itself off as objective journalists.

  3. I use Firefox. After an update, the Bluetooth has disappeared from my phone. Eight programs disappear (shortcuts that lead to nothing). Regularly (even after the update) the "Download" folder is not accessible; but after downloading anything with edge, the folder is accessible again!
