Anyone know why this would be happening, Edge is closed so why is it registering in Task manager?

Anyone else have Edge still running in the background after its been closed? Startup boost and continue running background extensions are both disabled.View attachment 279423
For me it was the new Windows Copilot feature. It's reliant on MS Edge and keeps it running in the background. After turning it off Edge doesn't keep running anymore.

There are no issues here, but I disabled many unnecessary settings.

@JohnR, Vivaldi is a great browser for users who value control and appreciate updates that respect their settings.

I have noticed this entry in Autoruns, it re-creates itself when removed.
I shut down PC by removing startup entries, so it is not an issue for me.
