Why does S10+ edge app widget show recent apps?

JUMP TO SOLUTION
My S10+ recently updated and I noticed that my edge application widget shows recent apps at the top and my apps on edge widget at the bottom. I don't need recent apps on edge screen. I can use the "recent apps" button on bottom left. Real estate on a phone screen should be used judiciously and doesn't make sense to have duplicate features, or two buttons doing the same thing.

Hi,
I do not get the three dots when I click the pencil. All I see is an option to see All apps vs Multi window apps. I see three dots when I click the settings icon from edge panel. However, those 3 dots give me the option to change appearance and order of my edge panels; I do not get the option to disable recent apps from edge panel.
Perhaps the solution you prescribed works for S20, but I have S10+ and this solution does not work for me. I wish I could attach a screenshot to show you what I mean.

The 3 dot menu is on the right hand side of the screen immediately under the battery percentage.

You can easily turn off the Recent apps in the edge panel.

  1. Open the edge panel.
  2. Click the pencil at the bottom of the edge panel.
  3. Click the 3 dot menu. 
  4. Turn off the option "Show recent apps".
