Unable to type in Microsoft Edge address field

I couldn't type anything in the Microsoft Edge address bar where URLs are entered nor could I type in the "Find on page" field in Edge on a Microsoft Windows 10 system. But in tabs opened to pages where I might type some input, such as a tab in which I was viewing a Wikipedia article, I cold type and see what I had typed appear. E.g., in the Wikipedia tab, I could search for other Wikipedia articles. And in the outlook.com tab that was also open, I could compose email messages. I could also type input into the Microsoft Windows "Type here to search" field at the bottom of the screen. When I searched online for a possible resolution to the problem, I found a couple of pages where people linked it to McAfee antivirus software on the system, but that isn't installed on the system. I also saw a couple of pages where people stated that running the built-in Windows ctfmon.exe program might resolve the problem. I opened a command prompt and issued the tasklist command to see if it was already running. It was and when I ran it again anyway, there was no change to the problem.

C:\>tasklist | find /i "ctfmon"
ctfmon.exe                   25000 Console                    3     22,444 K

C:\>ctfmon.exe

C:\>

Closing and reopening Microsoft Edge resolved the problem.

Microsoft Edge Process Memory Consumption

While working on a family member's PC, which is running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional edition, I found performance was slow while I was trying to look up some information in a tab in the Microsoft Edge browser. When I hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and brought up the Windows Task Manager, clicked on the Performance tab, then clicked on Memory to view the memory utilization, I saw that most of the system's memory was being consumed, which would contribute to poor performance, if information needs to be swapped in and out of memory to disk while I'm switching between open applications. CPU utilization was also, high.

Task Manager - memory utilization

When I clicked on Details and then clicked on the "Memory (private working set)" column header to order the processes by memory consumption, I saw that the 7 topmost consumers of memory were MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe processes, i.e., Microsoft Edge web browser processes.
