CCleaner not auto cleaning Edge


Recommended Posts

Hi!

My CCleaner 5.72.7994 is not auto cleaning Microsoft Edge history.

All browsers are set to "Automatically clean on closing without notification". Edge is not being cleaned.

Microsoft Edge 44.19041.423.0

CCleaner Pro latest version

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Intel Core i7 8700, 3.20GHz, 32GB RAM, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

Bitdefender Total Security 2021

Just to save others having to check - That's Legacy Edge. (not Edge Chromium).

Automatic cleaning uses the Custom Clean settings.

Do you have Internet History ticked for Edge in the Custom Clean settings?

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

Yes, internet history isticked for Edge.

To be honest I don't know the difference between Edge Legacy and Chromium. This is the Edge that is automatically installed with the system.

I bought I new Windows licence,  downloaded Windows iso from Microsoft this weekend and intalled it.

Edge Chromium is based on Google Chrome but modified by Microsoft - it is replacing the older 'legacy' Microsoft Edge. (which is what you have currently).

You don't currently have it installed.

You will probably offered (or made) to change in the next couple of weeks as the Win10 October 2020 upgrade rolls out.

If you want to change now then just search for "install Edge Chromium".

If/when you have installed it then CCleaner will show both versions, (because both will be on your machine but it will use the new one by default).

I'm not sure if your Edge history cleaning issues are being caused by this Microsoft change of the default browser but they may well be.

Win 10 pre-loads things and changes registry entries in advance of updates.

You could try manually running Health Check instead of Custom Clean - but be aware that Health Check does it's own thing and so will not respect any custom settings.

Problem solved.

I installed Edge Chromium 86.0. CCleaner is auto cleaning it.

Thank you!
