Microsoft Edge version 1803

Recommended Posts

The new April update causes Ccleaner to say it needs to close Edge before cleaning checking Yes means forcing Edge to close but then it says it takes to long and I need to "force" it to close

I just need to know if forcing Edge to close & be cleaned will cause more problems? If I don't close it will it clean itself if I either reboot or just run clean from internet options on the Cpl?

Will the next update fix or address this?

Is Edge your browser of choice?

if not, I’d untick those Edge/IE cleaning options and ignore it all.

default browser is Firefox but I am wondering if clearing Edge/IE Defaults may leave unneeded files behind

While you may not use Edge or IE the system itself will, for example you can clean them and then they'll just populate some more files, etc., that Windows needs to display web-related things. Also some other software that needs them for downloading updates (example allot of antivirus software utilizes the IE Temporary Internet Files and Cookies folders for downloading updates, and not all of them clean up after themselves when doing so).

SInce it takes so long to clean them you could just untick Edge/IE, and then only occasionally clean them manually with CCleaner (say once per week, bi-weekly, or once per month). With them unticked you don't have to re-enable them either, just right-click them and select Clean from the pop-up menu list. That way you won't always be waiting a long time for CCleaner to finish cleaning.
