Love to play with Windows 11 and 10. Suggestion - Going for Registry change or system files edit then remember to take a backup or create a restore point before Starting.

  1. Microsoft Edge (Under Apps & Features) only has the options to ‘Modify’ or ‘Uninstall on my laptop, and same with the Microsoft Edge Update. What does ‘modify’ even do??! This is rather frustrating, as I too am fed up with Edge being frequently sluggish and unresponsive most time that takes a few minutes before I can continue doing whatever it was I was doing prior. I do NOT like Microsoft Edge for this very reason, and only am using it because more and more websites such as Twitter will not allow me to continue to use Internet Explorer.
