Is there a way to uninstall Microsoft Edge completely?


I have tried several suggested ways, but nothing has worked thus far.

maybe this?


But i would not be surprised if Microsoft baked it fully into Windows 10 by now making it near impossible to remove.

Bet this is what they think of our attempts at removing edge:

Even if Edge is successfully removed it will come back like a bad weed on the next major upgrade.

Since you can set your preferred default web browser, why is Edge even an issue.


And if anyone answers, "Because Cortana insists on using it," my response will be, "If you're using Cortana you are married to Edge and Bing for her web results."


The desire to hack out anything that ships with any OS, hoping it won't return when a major update occurs (and they occur for other than Windows), is folly.
