Teamviewer and Microsoft Edge

I believe there is a bug in Teamviewer.  About half the time when I remote into another computer, the Microsoft Edge home page also launches on the remote computer.  We don't even use Microsoft Edge.  Chrome is our browser.  This also happened about a year ago and I was told that the problem had been corrected . . . and it had.  However, it's back.  Anyone have a similar problem and know how to fix it?

    Two years and still investigating?

    TeamViewer even seems to add Edge on the startup programs list for the user (registry key HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run). Without the user's consent.

    Together with the "what's new" popups this is the most annoying feature of TeamViewer and causes a lot of trouble.

    You have a great product, but with some surprisingly strange flaws that absolutely KILL the user experience and usability sometimes.
