Steps to reproduce
I run processes on two of my machines which won’t work unless UAC is completely turned off via the registry. Unfortunately, Edge will not work with UAC disabled. You do allow a few Windows Apps to run with UAC disabled, mostly having to do with system configuration. Because I cannot use Edge I will continue using Chrome. As android begins to work better as a desktop I will change to that if necessary. I fail to see the need to prevent Edge from working with UAC disabled, especially if you tout the functionality so much.

Thanks for the feedback on Edge. Edge is not designed to work with UAC off as it is a UWP application. As a result, this item is being closed as By Design.
All the best,
