Win10 1909 Update Problem

I'm still on Win10 1909 to avoid new damn Edge which cannot be uninstalled starting 20H2!
Perhaps I will be using 1909 for at least one more year, more or soon Edge will go to IE and genius developers will cease force installing it with Windows!
BTW, the tragedy is new update for 1909: March 25, 2021—KB5000850

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/march-25-2021-kb5000850-os-build-18363-1474-preview-ffd0a98f-4114-4883-ab1f-8d0971f63978

Highlights:
Removes the Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop application that is out of support and installs the new Microsoft Edge.

Should I stop getting Windows updates or is there any workaround to keep away from new Edge? Which is ALWAYS running in the background and there's no way to eliminate it?

Hi @omidsoft

I can totally understand how you feel. But Windows cumulative security updates provide critical updates to the Windows 10 operating system so it's not recommend skipping the updates.

For your concern about Edge keeps running in the background, you can disable this feature in Edge settings:

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.

  2. Click/tap on the Settings and more (Alt+F) 3 dots menu icon, and click/tap on Settings.

  3. Click/tap on System on the left side.

  4. Turn off Startup boost and Continue running background apps when Microsoft Edge is closed.
