How to remove or uninstall Microsoft Edge from Window 10

Microsoft's Edge browser uninstalling is quite difficult in Windows 10. We will let you know in this post that how can you uninstall edge from window 10.

Microsoft has updated its Edge browser in Windows 10 so that it uses the Chromium browser as its base.

Should we uninstall Edge from Windows 10?

For my point of view it’s not a good idea. as it is a part of window 10 now. Microsoft want to make it an integral part of the OS. In a press conference Microsoft has stated that, ‘The new version of Microsoft Edge is included in a Windows system update, so the option to uninstall it or use the legacy version of Microsoft Edge will no longer be available’.

Rather than removing edge from window you can change your default browser in window 10 as per you preference. 

Before you removed Edge, I suggest you spend some time trying it, as it’s actually a very good update to the previous version.

But, if you really want to remove or uninstall the edge browser from your system, you can always use the PowerShell route outlined below.

How to remove or uninstall Edge from Windows 10

Uninstalling Edge takes a bit of work and you should know that you’ll only be getting rid of the Chromium version of the app, with the legacy edition being left in its place.

  • To removing this just, go to the Start Menu and type in powershell
  • You’ll see an app called Windows PowerShell appear at the top of the list.
  •  Right click on this and select the option Run as administrator to be able to use the uninstall command later on. 
  • You’ll also have to give permission for the app to make changes to your device, so click Yes.

  • At the command prompt, enter the following command;

get-appxpackage *edge*


After pressing Enter key, you’ll see a list appear with headings on the left and then the data on the right. Find the heading ‘PackageFullName’ and copy the details to the right of it.

Finally, enter the following command at the prompt;

remove-appxpackage [paste in the details you’ve just copied]


Then press the enter key and that's all. just keep in mind, that in future Windows 10 updates, the system may well reinstall the app once more.
