    Completely Uninstall & Remove All Traces of Edge


    How do I quickly remove and uninstall Edge? Did anyone make a .reg or .bat file to do it all for you?

    Install Windows 8!
    No, seriously, it can't be done and, if it can, it's not worth it!
    Just don't use it, it does no harm sittin there.

    Apparently there was a method of Edge in the early days of Windows 10 but it no longer works. If possible at all it would require advanced surgery and the risks of doing serious harm to the OS would be high. It was never intended that Edge be removed and there is no provision to do this.

    I would like to have it gone too. It is running in the background because when I run CCleaner, it says it has to shutdown Edge before it can clean.

    Yeah, that´s what I recognized too. I just ask myself, why does it need to mess around when I'm not using it?
