    I've downloaded a KB4567409x64 and it has installed on "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe"

    It seems to be a x64 but why it is installed under Program Files (x86)?

    Don't quite get what this is for. I'm already running version 83.0.478.54, is this an actual update for that or just an installer for those not running edge?

    Hello,

    If you already have the new Microsoft Edge installed, then this update will not be available.

    Has anyone else been having problems with edge crashing windows explorer to point of not being able to use mouse and cpu increases in explorer? Only way to get out of it is to restart explorer which is no easy task without keyboard and mouse.

    i guess that the MS Edge itself will not be pushed upon a Windows 7 SP1 system via WU though, regardless of ESU.

    Edit:

    Disregard that, it was just pushed into my system :)
