I tried this. Time will tell if it worked. For some reason Edge does not start on it's own every time. I will wait and see.

From your desktop screen
CTRL ALT DEL,
Click on Task Manager
Click on More Details
Click on Startup tab
Click on Edge
Click on Disable

Restart your computer - Should stop Edge fromm loading

From the search window (bottom left) type in Default App Settings.
The next screen will have Web Browser. I'm sure it will have Edge listed as the default. (NEVER use Edge)
Change the default browser to Chrome and your done!

As for startups, I suggest you download and run CCleaner. It finds and gets rid of spyware. One of the options is startup programs. Run it and see if Edge is set to launch.
Change the setting to Disabled.
For that matter, anything that you don't need, you should disable.

Good luck,
DJ

One of many reasons I gave up on Windows!

You probably have Edge set as your default browser. Change it to Google chrome.

We have been through the mill computer-wise over the years. The two best Non Anxiety producing Computers that we've had was The Chromebook that tomwed talked me into trying many moons ago.

Next is this Apple 27" iMac which has been outta this world fantastic since mid-year 2011. It has stopped updating Operating Systems. I am disappointed but understand.

When I have time to compute I just wanna compute I don't wanna be a part of the Technical Team at the Microsoft Corp. The last Dell that we have which is a one-piece touchscreen is probably going to be wiped of all information and sent to our grandson in Jersey for him to goof around with. He likes taking them apart, I hope it can't be put back together for his sake.

I can't wait for the trip to The Apple Store in Altamonte. It's gonna be a happy day.

Well Folks, on the startup tab CHROME is listed. But Edge still starts when I turn on the computer. The computer is a reconditioned HP ProBook that had a fresh copy of Windows 10 installed. It's not a big deal that Edge starts because I just close it and use Chrome. Thanks for all the suggestions. None of them work LOL. Damn Microsoft!

The lock screen on the page before you enter your password has a variety of different scenes. If you click in a certain area it brings Edge up with more information about the picture. Check the settings for the lock screen.
