I changed from using Google to Microsoft Edge, and ever since, I need to sign in everytime I try to open my Gmail account, Outlook, Facebook, Amazon, in fact every account I use. Is there somewhere in settings that I can change to stop this happening. ?

There can be various reason what this is happening,
Two basic checks to do is make sure you check the ‘keep me signed in box” and make sure your security settings isn’t clearing your cookies every time edge is closed, which overrides the first action.
I regually clear my cookie etc with CCleaner so have to sign in again to most accounts but as windows is allowed to remember most of my passwords, it easy to sign in again. Even then, this has to be controlled so things like internet banking and Amazon have to be signed in every time I access them on computers. When you sign in to a site for the first time windows asks you if you want to save the password.
