Remove Microsoft Edge from Windows 10

I wish Microsoft would take the hint and stop reinstalling their stupid Edge browser with every update but this still works…

  • open start
  • search for command prompt
  • right click then open command prompt as administrator
  • cd %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Microsoft\Edge\Application\8*\Installer
  • setup –uninstall –force-uninstall –system-level

Note the 8* above is prior to the 2021 May Windows 20H2 update. On at least one of my computers the version directory in the Application folder was 9* . So you may need to try:

  • cd %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Microsoft\Edge\Application\9*\Installer

There are walk-throughs on the web detailing how to keep Microsoft from reinstalling, but I have had no luck keeping Microsoft from ignoring the setting…
