    Recently, Edge has frozen for a period of time, then started working again. I checked Task Manager and found Edge using over 70% of the CPU resource. Any idea why this is happening? I tried Chrome and had the same issue. Sometimes I’ve had to end the task to get back to working. I have several tabs open on 3 monitors .

      Tell us something about your computer.
      What generation CPU? How much RAM? HDD or SSU? etc.
      What Version and Build of Win10 are you running? (Type winver in the Searchbox and hit Enter.)

        might also be an idea to disclose which version of MSFT Edge is being used and whether it’s updating properly ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Stable Channel most current version is 112.0.1722.58 (at time of posting)

        No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created IT- AE

        I have a i7-6700 @3.49Ghzm 16meg ram, .5 gig SSD, all software up to date, Kaspersky antivirus


        However I think I found the problem – I reset all Edge options – a bad extension may have caused the problem. I’ll watch today and see if the issue is resolved. Thanks for the ideas.
