Microsoft is stepping up its relentless campaign to encourage Windows 10 users to run its own Edge browser.
The company has used various tactics to persuade Windows users to run the revamped Edge, including pop-ups within the operating system and questionable prompts to use Microsoft’s “recommended” browser. Now the nagging is being stepped up a gear.
The soon-to-be-launched Windows 10 20H2 update, which is due for general release in early October, already installs Microsoft Edge by default and makes it irremovable.
On my test system, which is running an early preview of Windows 10 20H2, an Edge icon is placed as the first icon on the Taskbar and there’s another shortcut to Edge placed on the desktop, in case you missed that.
