        Hi all

        I have a laptop here with windows 10 home 20H2. I am unable to roll back 20H2 it will not give me the uninstall menu. Every time I click the mouse microsoft edge opens and everytime I subsequently click the mouse it opens a new browser window.

        Should I just give up and put in a pro key…..

         

        Regards,

        D..

        More details please;

        When did you update to 20H2?

        Where are you looking for an uninstall menu?

        What exactly are you clicking on when Edge windows open?

        Windows 10 Pro version 21H1 build 19043.1052 + Microsoft 365 (group ASAP)

        Ok

        When did you update to 20H2?

        A few days ago

        Where are you looking for an uninstall menu?

        View update history –> Uninstall Updates –> Right click on updates (Normally gives uninstall option well it does in pro)

        What exactly are you clicking on when Edge windows open? Edge automatically opens then when I click anywhere on the desktop it opens a new edge window. (Note: not when I click in the taskbar)

          Wireless or wired?  Do you have another mouse you can try?

            Tested on both laptop built in mouse and wired mouse.

            Now here’s the really strange thing.. I formatted the drive and did a bare metal install of W10 Pro. Its an older version 1909 to be precise and has the older version of edge and it behaves the same way i’m sumped..

        Now BING is opening up with out my input and launching multiable BING windows.

        Anyone would think this is viral but I did format and bare metal install.

            Microsoft.

            I think I downloaded it mid to late 2019. I have about 5 versions here that I have used on systems from time to time. Why do you ask?
