Annoying Discovery About Microsoft Edge

 I am a little tight on disk space so I used Ccleaner's Duplicate File Finder.  I found some duplicates caused by reinstalling software such as the HP LaserJet files with a very subtle directory name distance.  Rather than delete files one by one, I just deleted the entire directory.  In some cases, it appears that an installation copy duplicated a /usr/bin copy (Cygwin, mostly).

But there are three copies of many files associated with Microsoft Edge, a browser I do not use.  Why would Edge be installed multiple times and not on top of existing versions?
