edge legacy the end 2021

As Microsoft announced in August 2020, support for Microsoft Edge Legacy will be terminated on March 9, 2021.

The new Microsoft Edge Stable is going to take its place as a fixed part of the operating system. A cumulative update, on patch day April 2021 will totally remove the old Edge Legacy Browser from your OS.

For people who did not know this, Edge Legacy is still a part of your Windows 10 system but hidden. Systems affected by this move from Microsoft are listed below.

Windows 10 versions impacted:

  • Windows 10, version 1803, all editions (April 2018)
    • Note: This version will not be included in the optional Windows 10 March Preview release.
  • Windows 10, version 1809, all editions (October 2018)
  • Windows 10, version 1903, all editions (May 2019)
    • Note: This version is out of support for desktop
  • Windows 10, version 1909, all editions (October 2019)
  • Windows 10, version 2004, all editions (May 2020)
  • Windows 10, version 20H2, all editions (October 2020)
    • Because Windows 10, 20H2 already uses the new Microsoft Edge as its default browser, it will not be reinstalled; only Microsoft Edge Legacy will be removed.
