MS decides that they need a new feature or security and like it or not you get the new update. Then we find out that there is a problem. It takes a week to a month to work out the bugs and then it works OK for a while, until they get the bug to 'fix' it again.
At home I use Firefox, at work unfortunately we use Edge.

Let me see if I remember. Tap the three dots on the right "..." which opens the settings. Check the box that says you want to choose your own home page (not default). Type your home page web address (or copy/paste from the address bar) and click on the Save icon (looks like an old floppy picture). Tap the + sign if you want to add additional pages and repeat.

"its just an unworkable O/S"
Not for me & the silent majority.

What do you think will be your next move?

Do you realize that Edge, has had a huge amount of problems & is abandoning it's own engine.
The new version will use the Chromium engine.

It has been 3/4 of a year since I set my home page, but if I
recall correctly, I had a hard time getting it to work because
Edge kept applying the setting to a new tab (or was it a new
window?), and when I closed that tab (or window), the new
setting was lost. It took me several tries to realize what was
happening. I had to set the new home page, then close the
original tab (or window) with the default home page, leaving
only the new tab open with the new home page. Then it was
safe to close the new tab (or window) because the new home
page was really and truly set.
