To start the removal of Microsoft Edge in Windows 10, you will need the current version number of the browser.
You can find this under About Microsoft Edge in the main menu. Found it? make a copy of the version number because you will need it later. Done this? open up your Command Prompt as Administrator.
While in the CMD as Administrator, type the following, except for VERSION-NUMBER.
Replace VERSION-NUMBER with the current version number you found in Edge.
- cd %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Microsoft\Edge\Application\VERSION-NUMBER\Installer
The Command Prompt will switch to the Edge installer folder. Once in there, copy and paste the following into your CMD:
- setup.exe –uninstall –system-level –verbose-logging –force-uninstall
Edge will instantly be removed from Windows 10. To prevent Edge from reinstalling itself, use the following reg-key.
