That should not be possible unless she is using your account on her PC or one of her devices she is syncing with, or she is logged into your computer. The best bet is to find out why it is happening, then fix it. Using another browser or uninstalling it fixes nothing.

Do you have sync enabled on your PC?

Education is great but for one, we don't know how old this granddaughter is. She may have a legitimate reason to sync - for example her home PC with her notebook she uses for school or work.

I think cookiemonster needs to find out why this is happening first. Syncing should not be happening between her account and his - unless he has allowed her access to his account.

My granddaughter has ADHD and is 10 years old and I had stopped her playing Minecraft as she would not stop chatting, she has no fear of clicking buttons to see what happens and keeps going into the settings on her computer it was when I noticed all her Minecraft Web stuff in my favourites I realised she had synced with my system.

Can't you just remove the edge shortcut and replace it with another browser?

She should have her own user account on the computer. Just make sure it is a standard user account and not an Admin account.

Benchmark Scores Faster than yours... I'd bet on it. :)
My granddaughter has ADHD and is 10 years old and I had stopped her playing Minecraft as she would not stop chatting, she has no fear of clicking buttons to see what happens and keeps going into the settings on her computer it was when I noticed all her Minecraft Web stuff in my favourites I realised she had synced with my system.
My 9 y.o knows not to bang buttons (with education and time... it also wouldn't surprise me if he is ADHD too). As assumed, the kid is old enough to know how to and not to do things on a PC. Want to use the PC? Don't sync accounts (show how that is done). If just saying it doesn't help, consequences (can't use the PC) would. :)

I wouldn't give her a MS account (do you have to be 13? Not even sure there), but perhaps her own login for windows. Along with uninstalling the new Edge, deleting icons, and continued teaching, you should be OK.

I don't understand why you reformatted. That should always be a last resort option to fix a broken Windows installation. This is because it can set you months or longer behind in updates, you may lose all your personal data and apps, it often does not fix the problem. And if it does fix the problem you learn nothing about the cause of the problem to prevent recurrence.

If you disconnect from the Internet before installing Windows, you should be able to proceed without a MS account. See How To Setup Windows 10 Without a Microsoft Account.
