There are no really good ways to disable this. Most of the blogs note that you need to set a couple of registry values on Windows 10 and that stops the problem from re-occurring. The problems I have on an Enterprise Admin level, is that these solutions are very manual (sure a few of them give you some .reg key file you can import) and they make a basic assumption that some of the application versions and AppIDs will never change.

So I’ve written a little bit of PowerShell to get the AppID from the current version(s) of Edge and remove the association.
