How to Uninstall Microsoft Chromium Edge in Windows 10

Microsoft has finally unveiled the stable version of Chromium Edge after one year of trials at Edge Insider. With this new project, the company made Edge a native web-browser and it will receive updates independently to that of monthly Windows 10 patches. It includes all the useful features that were tested on its legacy versions like Beta, Dev, or Canary. However, if you don’t want to continue with this, you may choose to uninstall Microsoft Chromium Edge.

Earlier, uninstalling Microsoft Edge poses security issues as this was a core component of Windows 10 OS. But, as of now, if you don’t like the performance of new Chromium Edge or face any other bugs, you may simply uninstall this web-browser. Let’s explore how to remove this application on Windows 10 PC –

  1. This info did nothing for me. The apps & features had edge listed, but I couldn’t uninstall it, or modify it. The
    DOS version was equally useless because there is no file folder “Microsoft” under Program Files (x86). I didn’t look at the date of this posting, but it’s out of date. I have 5 PC’s in the house, and all are the same.

    • Hi Jack,
      Indeed this article is old, however, we have recently updated this post. The above two ways will work on Windows 10 version 20H1, 19H2, and 19H1. If you are using an Insider Program, this might not work. Please let me know if you still find it difficult to uninstall Chromium Edge.
