    Everyone on w10 will be snapping theirs taskbar to the right to fix the "feature" that nobody'sasked for.

    Even on W10 Enterprise (and Server 2022, and probbaly earlier versions) it's already there as a prominent icon in Edge, so although the desktop icon may not (yet) have appeared, those systems haven't escaped it!

    Maybe 'cos it ain't Winders.
