Want to remove Microsoft Edge from Windows 10? Follow these 2 steps

Microsoft has had a new browser, based on Chromium, for some time. Edge has been developed and tested, with the final versions being able to be tested on various operating systems.


If until now it was mostly optional, Microsoft started to install this new proposal actively, often without authorization from users. Fortunately there is a simple way to remove this browser and get back to the previous version.

Despite being a browser already proven in Windows 10 and with performance even above normal, not everyone wants the new Edge present. They prefer the previous version, for several reasons, among them the privacy that is supposedly more exposed now.

As it is not always simple or even possible to remove this new browser, Microsoft has given users a way to do so. Just run 2 commands in a DOS or PowerShell window and this browser is quickly removed.
