Why is Microsoft Edge running when I don't use it ?

I was looking at my process in the Windows task manager and I saw a “Microsoft Edge” running !

Okay it’s to speed up the launch but I don’t want it !

Turn off Microsoft Edge as a Background App

Press the Windows Key + S and type in privacy and click on Privacy settings. Alternatively, go to your Control Panel > Privacy.
On the left side, scroll down until you see App Permissions and find Background apps.
On the right-hand side look for Microsoft Edge and make sure that it’s turned off. A reboot will be required before Edge no longers runs in the background.

and I did the same for Office, Xbox Game Bar and the Xbox Compagnon !
