    This flag has not been there around for a long time, as it is available in settings.

    kaljukass, it was in previous version and can' be activated without that flag, and Edge must be restarted. But in the new build i couldn't it. Now i see this setting. You made my day, Thank you very much! :)

    What is "previous version" and what is "current version" for You.
    I have always had current/latest/latter etc version and it has been there and is there also now. And as much as I know, the very latest version is 93.0.961.38, released as stable versin on 2022-09-02 at 18:43:00 UTC

    kaljukass, "previous" was 92.0.902.84 (flag worked), "current" is 93.0.961.38 ( flag doesn't work but needed setting is appeared without flag now). I'm used to always using this flag. so when i couldn't find it, it seemed to me as this feature was removed or forgotten.

    Yes I checked, it is true that in version 92.0.902.84 this flag existed (strange, it has long been announced that it will be removed from there, I guess it was in April). But it was also on the menu of version 92.0.902.84.
    In fact, its existence is not necessary at all. Whenever you make a mistake, you can open all closed tables with Ctrl + Shift + T, of course, as long as you haven't deleted the previous session's history.
    Now it's available in settings and everyone can turn it on or off as he/she like. I like to turn off all useless widgets and features. Always and for ever.

    Earlier, there was a trick that has found & shared by @abbodi1406 (placing blank MSFT folder in Programme file, to block the new chromium-based EDGE to be installed in a clean installation or after installing the LCU, that worked for some time, but now, for 21H2, it is not working

    so, any new trick/workaround to block the MS EDGE (chromium) to be installed while installing W10 via clean installation method or installing the LCU for every month patch Tuesday?

    Has anyone tried the same thing but also altering the permissions? Maybe also create dummy files as well with permissions set to deny everything? Maybe take things up a notch and NTFS encryption (that green file name trick) to block overwriting?

    @abbodi1406 posted a change proposal for the script running on Windows 11 somewhere, in order to not remove Webview2.

    Here's the one I use for Windows 11 that doesn't remove the Webview component:

    Code:
    @setlocal DisableDelayedExpansion
    @echo off
    if defined PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 start %SystemRoot%\Sysnative\cmd.exe /c "%0 " &exit
    reg.exe query "HKU\S-1-5-19" 1>nul 2>nul || (echo Run the script as administrator&goto :TheEnd)
    
    set "u_path=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft"
    set "s_path=%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft"
    if /i %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%==x86 (if not defined PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 (
      set "s_path=%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft"
      )
    )
    
    @cls
    if /I $%1==$FORCE goto autoyes
    echo.
    choice /C YN /N /M "Microsoft Edge Chromium will be uninstalled. Continue? [y/n]: "
    if errorlevel 2 exit
    
    :autoyes
    reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Microsoft Edge" /v NoRemove /f 2>nul

    Very interesting, it's the 2020-10 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1903, but you asked for the Edge installation.
    Besides, we have October 6 or 7, 2021 today (6 or 7, it depends on the geographical location).
    Very strange.

    I'm trying to understand your thoughts, but it seems to be getting difficult. It seems to me that you have not yet discovered that Windows 11 does not have only one Edge installed, and it is not located in one place only. There are a minimum of two of them, and you use one of them when you look at the web, but the other one initially works mostly for webview, ie msedgewebview2 is the main one used there.
    But I've also seen situations where even three Edges are installed in different locations, and there have been situations where these are different versions of Edge, which in turn means that they also have bugs in the upgrade system and not all are updated automatically and regularly. This way, you can get notifications that Edge needs an upgrade even if you've just completed the upgrade process. It happens, because in registry are still both (or even more) data about installed Edge.True, this all has so far only occurred in different versions of Windows 11. In Windows 10 no such a things and such a problems, there is only one Edge and usually one place of installation and everything works well.
    So I don't think it's a good idea to invent anything as long as it's not clear how Edge will be located in Windows 11 and what it will do there.
    PS, don't forget, IE is still there, but I haven't researched what it still does.

    I can only speak for my own nerves, which are stable enough to deal with pop-ups!

    I was composing a reply to @kaljukass, when your post appeared. I hope this is a case of "code speaking louder than words" and your reply clarifies for @kaljukass's benefit what my I was trying to express in English sentences.

    Thank you for your ongoing efforts to 'tame the Edge beast'
    I will check out your code offerings ASAP.

    P.S. ChrEdgeFkOff :cool:
