When you create an article or blog entry, you can set the author meta tag. Of course you'd have to change all old articles too. But it sounds like both Edge and Joomka are working as they should.
Beware the new Window 10 web browser. Reading mode may add the wrong author's name to your articles.
The new Windows 10 web browser includes a reading mode feature. When using reading mode an author's name appears under the title. This author does not appear when viewing the page normally or in any other browser.
The author's name in Joomla will be the person was logged in when the article was first created. For us this is never the person who actually authored the article, but rather the person who was maintaining the website at the time the article was created, so it is rather awkward to be shown there.
It can easily be removed. Joomla embeds the name in behind the scenes in a meta tag. We just need to tell Joomla to stop embedding this tag.
Here's how: Log into Joomla administration, click on System and select Global Configuration. Make sure the Site tab is selected. Scroll down to near the bottom of the page and you will see "Show Author Meta Tag" . Make sure that "No" is selected, it will be red when "No" is selected.
After you do this the author will no longer be embedded in the page and will not appear when the viewer is using the reading mode.

If that's the only problem you've had with Edge, count your blessings. It lasted about 10 minutes, here.
