What settings are you referring to? 

When I start Edge, it opens the tabs I've designated to open on startup.  To do that, click the 3 dots in the upper right corner, select Settings, select On startup.  From there, you have the option to have Edge open a new tab, continue where you left off or open specific page/pages.  I opened my desired pages to load on startup and then under "Open a specific page or pages" clicked "Use all open tabs".  Works perfectly for me.

Are you saying your Windows desktop theme has been taken over? Or your Edge theme is being changed?

Either way, I with Corrine here. I am not seeing any changes to any of my themes.

Is Edge your default browser?

If you're using Pale Moon, I don't understand what that has to do with Edge.

Yeah, I'm confused too. And sadly, several questions were asked so we could get an understanding of this issue. But the only question answered was your default browser. :(

You know how it works, Gordon. You have to help us understand the problem so we can help you resolve it.

When did this problem start? That is, did you just upgrade to W10 3 or 4 days ago and the problem started right after the upgrade? Or has it been working fine with W10 for awhile?

Could it be that Edge is in StartUp?  Easy to change with Task Manager.  See How To Remove Programs From Startup In Windows 10.

The Catalyst Control Center is for an AMD graphics card. It does not need to be running with Windows.

As for removing Edge, not sure I would. It does not say Beta by chance, does it?
