hello, hope i'm putting this post in the right place. 

One thing I was curious about was the behavior of automatic updates. I am unable to find any options regarding updates for this browser. It automatically updates itself which is fine I suppose, but it does this even if the browser is not open. Is there an option to wait to apply updates until I open the browser and then prompt me to restart it? 

I'm assuming there's a background process running checking for the updates - anyone know what it is?

Since we are still in the preview builds on the Microsoft Edge Insider channels, there is not 

a hole bunch of options yet to control browser updates.

 

You can go to edge://settings/system and turn off 

 

 

@V-FRROME 

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I don't seem to get that option at edge://settings/system

@crazycarl 

 

I apologize that setting is not yet ready for the Mac version. 

 

It would have not given you the complete control you were speaking of with the update process ( The Windows version doesn't either).

 

These update control features look like they will be a work in progress and might not show up till later

builds, since we are still adding and fixing stuff frequently.

 

Thanks for your patience,

Frank
