Stop Edge from Pre-loading

This method uses the group policy editor. It will not work if you are running Windows Home Edition

  1. Run gpedit.msc
  2. Hit Enter
  3. Navigate to Local Computer Policy >Computer Configuration> Administrative Templates >Windows Components>Microsoft Edge
  4. Double-click on the listing – Allow Microsoft Edge to pre-launch at Windows startup, when the system is idle, and each time Microsoft Edge is closed
  5. This should open the Configuration page
  6. If you allow pre-launch, disable, or don’t configure this policy setting, Microsoft Edge pre-launches during Windows sign in, when the system is idle, and each time Microsoft Edge is closed; minimizing the amount of time required to start up Microsoft Edge. If you prevent pre-launch, Microsoft Edge won’t pre-launch during Windows sign in, when the system is idle, or each time Microsoft Edge is closed.
