Saw a similar message this morning that I don't have to use EDGE. So, had to erase ALL of Office 365! What a bummer! Is the message from you that if I don't accept EDGE I can't use the other programs?

Hi there, you are welcome to the Microsoft Edge Insider Community Hub!

Microsoft Office has some features which require Microsoft Edge web view 2 for their functioning. If you don't know what Microsoft Edge Web View is, it is just like electron.js which allows you to run a website like a desktop app. You don't require the Microsoft Edge browser to have Microsoft Edge Web View, you can just install it separately.
