Default Windows 10 Question

When I turn on my win 10 laptop Microsoft will start Edge and some web page will open. I only use Google Chrome and don't want ANYTHING to start unless I click on it. I've tried to stop this but to no avail. Anyone here know how to do this?

Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Task Manager and then click the Startup tab. (If you don't see any tabs, click the MORE Details link at the bottom to expand Task Manager.
That tab displays a potentially long list of programs that have been configured to start up every time you turn on your PC.
To prevent a program from starting automatically, click its entry in the list and then click the Disable button at the bottom of the Task Manager window. To re-enable a disabled app, click the Enable button. (Both options are also available if you right-click any entry on the list.)

I've switched to Linux Mint this past year and I don't see any reason to go back to Windows. Linux doesn't force you to run updates or need virus protection or slow your PC down over time ... it just works!

Now, I understand that some people need a Windows PC to run Windows programs, but if all you do is web stuff (Facebook, banking, etc) then Linux will do you well. Linux does have thousands of programs that do what Windows programs do, but you have to learn a new system to some degree.

Ctrl+Shift+Del - This is hold down the CTRL (and) Shift (AND) and DEL keys - all labeled exactly like this all three at the same time

If you want to try Linux let me know. I swap out your hard drive for one that has Linux on it. That way you can try it out without any loss. If you like Linux you keep the disk and I reformat your old drive for someone else to try Linux.

I don't know why, but Edge was not on the start-up tab.
