Why is Edge x64 installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)".
Should it be better in "C:\Program Files"

    I just did a clean install of chrome and it installed in "C:\Program Files," Chromium Edge (same version as chrome 87) installs in "C:\Program Files (x86)."

    Why would this not be fixed in the latest version of Edge Chromium?

    Missy Quarry, Community Manager for Microsoft Edge, has stated they will be following chrome. Hopefully soon. Thank you!
