So, I just noticed this week...

Every time I reboot my Windows 11 PC, a shortcut for Microsoft Edge keeps reappearing on the desktop.

Reading around, apparently this is "normal" when Edge updates, but I haven't noticed it until just this week.

Quite a few of the "big" software applications do this. I've seen it with Google Earth, Adobe Acrobat, Firefox, Chrome, and more. And yes, even Edge which I never knowingly use. It is annoying as all get out.

Speaking of Microsoft dirty tricks with Windows ...

Today I logged onto my computer and found an unwelcome splash screen ... "your computer qualifies to run Windows 11 ... click here for a free upgrade!". Opting out or declining the upgrade was not one of the immediate choices. I had flashbacks to when I was force upgraded to Windows 10 during their last OS upgrade round of dirty tricks.

Yea I have a laptop with a q6600 in it that doesn't qualify for windows 11. I'd upgrade it if it did... because i'm like that.
