I had to reinstall Edge as I had an issue but when I started the browser back up it automatically created a profile tied to my domain account / pc profile and I am unable to remove it as it doesn't give the option. 

 

I checked the GPOs I have enabled and none seem to be the cause of this.

Anyone know how to remove this or stop this happening?

Hi,
Which Edge insider channel?
the newly created profile is a work account, right?

@HotCakeX Issue is on both Dev and Beta.

Yes the profile is a work account.

I have had the same problem, haven't been able to delete the auto created work/domain account.

As far as I can tell this is a deliberate design choice by the Edge team, Edge Legacy has always done the same thing if you sign into Windows with a consumer account. AAD SSO is a handy feature for users, but there's no way to justify taking away control from the user over their own account and identity choices. If I had to guess it's driven by a desire to be able to track users the web across by ensuring their Microsoft/AAD account cookies are always present. @Peter Dennington
