      Just FYI,

      I notice from some scripts I run whenever my system boots up that MS has started silently updating Microsoft Edge:

      2019-06-29
      Added  : Microsoft Edge Update 1.3.105.7
      2019-07-10
      Removed: Microsoft Edge Update 1.3.105.7
      Added  : Microsoft Edge Update 1.3.107.13
      2019-07-16
      Removed: Microsoft Edge Update 1.3.107.13
      Added  : Microsoft Edge Update 1.3.107.15

      These entries have never appeared before.

      I can see no references anywhere as to the updates except for the script I run.

      Has anyone else noticed this?

      What is the source for this information?

      What version of Windows are you running?

          Yes. But, which build? I may make a difference.

            Windows 10/64 (B18362.239-V1903)

            I hope that helps.

            Edit:

            This little PowerShell script will output the required information if run with Administrator privileges.

            Code:
            $String = [Regex]'(Microsoft Edge Update)'
            $Collection=$(Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_InstalledWin32Program |
            Sort-Object -Property Name, Version -Unique |
            Select-Object -Property Name, Version)
            foreach ($item in $collection)
            {
            if ([regex]::Match($item.name,$String).success)
            {
            $item
            }
            }

      Do you have Chrome-based Edge installed? It installs an automatic updater.

      Ah! That may be the reason. I was not expecting the Chromium version to have any effect on the standard version. The only reason for installing the Chromium version was to test out the extensions for SQRL. See also: Jaap’s Chrome & Firefox WebExtension on that page.
