    Microsoft Edge is the default web browser of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system. It replaced Internet Explorer as the default browser even though Internet Explorer 11 is also still available on devices for backwards compatibility reasons.

    Microsoft Edge loads quite fast when you run it on Windows 10 devices after sign in to a user account. If you check the Task Manager, you may notice that several Microsoft Edge processes run on the system even before you start the browser manually.

    The processes that you may see are MicrosoftEdge.exe, MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe, and MicrosoftEdgeSH.exe. All three are listed as suspended and the only reason they do get launched on the system is that Edge will open faster because of the preloading that is involved.
