I recently started seeing popup notifications from Microsoft Edge when I try to open another browser like Firefox or Chrome:

Microsoft Edge is safer than Firefox taskbar popup

Chrome is draining your battery faster switch to Microsoft Edge

Earn more with Microsoft Edge

Is there any way to disable these popups without uninstalling Microsoft Edge?

According to How-To Geek these advertisements can be disabled in the Windows 10 Settings:

They’re not generated by the Microsoft Edge app on your PC. Instead, they’re generated by the Windows operating system itself.

You’ll find this setting in the Settings app. Open the Start menu and click the Settings icon to launch it.

Navigate to System > Notifications & Actions in the Settings app.

Scroll down to the Notifications section and disable the “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows” option.
