That also happened in Windows 10. Also, if you never installed a PDF viewer (or Windows 10 changed the default PDF viewer without your permission), opening a PDF file will also open a new tab along with the PDF. If you open multiple PDF files, you will get one blank tab (with the new tab page open) per PDF file.

Both of those only happened yesterday.

To me, Edge feels like a mix of the worst from Chrome and AOL.
