Is it normal for the Microsoft Edge icon to appear in the desktop in a brand new laptop?

colonelzordoncolonelzordon Posts: 4Member New User
Hi, everyone. I have recently bought a Helios 500 laptop (i7+16G memory). After first booting the system, I find the Microsoft Edge icon appears in the desktop, in addition to the Recycle Bin icon.
I was told that a brand new laptop was not supposed to have any other icons than the Recycle Bin in the desktop. So is it normal for the Microsoft Edge icon to appear in the desktop in a brand new laptop? Or is my laptop second-handed?
 Thank you for any explanation or advice.

    It is normal. When I got my Predator (new one), it had recycle bin, Edge and Predator Sense. Even when you reinstall using official ISO, these two will stay on desktop. Don't worry about it.

    Hi. Thank you for your reply. Can I ask further? 
    When I run aida64, it says the power on hours of the hard disk is 21 hours. And the hand disk has been charged for more than 130 times. Is it also normal for a brand new laptop?

    @xapim Hi. Thanks for your reply. Sorry, my expression is poor. So is it normal for the hard disk of a brand new laptop to have been used for 21 hours? I mean the (new) hard disk has 21hr power on hours.

    No its not i would ask for a replacement if you feel you should but if you aren't too bothered with it and it's working fine just leave it
