        Hi guys,
        The other day i clicked on “about microsoft edge” in edge settings menu and it checked for and updated the browser fine. My issue is the update is (Beta) version not a stable channel version. So how can i set edge to NOT install beta versions? I only want stable updates., I don’t want to be a beta tester!

        Thanks everyone

        There’s no easy switch between Beta and Stable, so uninstall Beta and download Stable.

        You may want to export favorites to an HTML file first for later import if you have many yet.

        (If you signed into Edge with a Microsoft Account you could sync all settings between them before uninstalling the beta.)

        Hello, I think my question may be misunderstood? I already have edge on my computer and works fine but when i clicked on the 3 dots top right … than click on settings than on “about microsoft edge” I see that edge has updated to Version 92.0.902.62 (Official build) (64-bit). On microsoft edge release notes site it is saying this is a (beta version) not a stable channel version. I simply do not want BETA updates to edge only stable updates and was hoping someone here could tell me what setting to change to block/stop beta updates.

        The latest version for both Beta and Stable is 92.0.902.62, but annoyingly the release notes for the Stable channel seem to lag behind reality by a few days.

        If you were getting Beta channel updates it would say so at Settings, About and on the Edge icon:

        About-Edge-Beta

        About-Edge-Stable
