    What is the Browser_Broker.exe file in Windows 10? Is it a virus?

    I see the process in my Windows 10 Task Manager.

    Browser_Broker.exe if located in the System32 folder is a legit Microsoft Windows operating system file. It starts when you start Edge browser, and exits when you close the Edge browser.

    When you launch Microsoft Edge browser, it starts four processes - and browser_broker.exe is one of the processes which is launched by the svchost.exe and it is required for proper functionng of Edge.
