      I have it installed on my Wn7 PC that drives my TV.  I just checked and it’s been updated to the current version, 80.0.361.48  that includes the security patch.  This runs independent of Windows updates.

      My Win7 ThinkPad has been updated without me doing anything. It seems the update does not require any user interaction.

      Just curious, does the new credge itself install automatically or do you have to download it and install it? I am still using Chrome since I never liked edge so was just wondering what the process was of getting the new credge.

      For now you have to download ChrEdge. In the future it will be part of Microsoft’s patch Tuesday for Windows 10 (but not for Windows 7).

        Could you clarify?  I was under the impression that moving to Chromium would allow the browser to update without relying on monthly updates.  So I thought that Chredge would be able to update as Chromium makes releases, and that these updates would not necessitate a reboot.

          An excerpt from Upgrading to the new Microsoft Edge:

          Enterprise and education users will not be automatically upgraded at this time. Contact your administrator for more information on updating to the new Microsoft Edge in your organization. Administrators should refer to the “Enterprise updates and options” section below.

          The new Microsoft Edge will gradually be made available on Windows Update and offered to additional devices as data and feedback indicate that users are having a good experience. If you don’t want to wait, you can get the new Microsoft Edge at microsoft.com/edge.

          Whether you download today or wait for us to upgrade it on your device, your favorites, passwords, and basic settings will carry over to the new Microsoft Edge automatically. The automatic rollout will maintain your default browser setting – if your default is currently set to a browser other than Microsoft Edge, your setting will carry over once the new Microsoft Edge is installed.

          Once you’ve installed Microsoft Edge, it will update independently on a roughly six-week cadence.

      There is no option to disable autoupdates.

      If you wish to disable autoupdates, you can do so via the Task Manager and Task Scheduler.

      Open Task Manager, click on Services, and disable the following:

      Microsoft Edge Update Service (edgeupdate)

      Microsoft Edge Update Service (edgeupdatem)

      Microsoft Edge Elevation Service

       

      In Task Scheduler disable the following:

      MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskMachineUA

      MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskMachineCore

      The initial release will be done via Microsoft update. Security and feature updates will be updated automatically when ready.

        Printing PDFs works for me after this update, so you may need to look elsewhere; restart?
