Problem with Microsoft edge eventhough default browser set to Internet explorer

I have a windows 10 workstation.   The default web browser is set to Internet Explorer.  All other apps... when they call on web services, use internet explorer as intended except for 1 application.  I have spoken to the software company and we have gotten into circular conversations about why this is only happening to their application.  Their latest suggestion is to disable "edge"..
1) I'm not sure how to do this as of yet.
2) Microsoft products are heavily intertwined so if I did do this, could I possible mess up some other functionality within the msft ecosystem.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You cannot disable Edge (it underpins much of Windows 10).  You can certainly set it so it is not default.

Did you set the default here?
