I dunno, but can you stop bundling it into Windows Update and then force-installing (despite previous uninstallation) and then making itself the default browser?
Otherwise I'm just going to have to track down that nice woman at the EU again, because I've had a Windows 10 laptop for precisely days and it's already pissing me off.
No choice - turned on machine, it was installed. I uninstalled. I rebooted. Windows Update put it back on, pinned to taskbar and had it try to steal my default. Uninstalled. Few days later, another batch of updates. Rebooted. Same thing.
I wouldn't mind but I have literally no intention to ever use it, ever. Stop it.
I've spend the last few days doing nothing but researching how to turn off self-pinning apps (an XML file in your user profile can force them back on every reboot, apparently), apps that load but don't appear in startup, and apps that want to be in the taskbar for no discernible reason. And uninstalling crap I will never need, and if anyone knows how to move/rename the Windows Administrative Tools folder, I'd be most grateful, it's messing up my career-long folder organisation of my start menu (Yep, Open Shell, because that other thing is just a heap of junk to try to use).
