How to Uninstall Microsoft Edge on Windows 11/10?


Windows 11 comes with Microsoft Edge pre-installed. Edge is a web browser from Microsoft that seems very much integrated into the operating system. Not only is it the default web browser for most file extensions, but it is also the only web browser that is built into the operating system. Microsoft has given the Edge browser full autonomy, so they can import and export their data from any other browser. Due to this reason, Microsoft doesn’t let you uninstall the app and wants you to keep using it.

Unfortunately, if you try to uninstall Microsoft Edge using either Control Panel or the Settings app, you will find the Uninstall option is missing or greyed out. But thankfully, there is a workaround to uninstall the Edge browser from Windows 11/10. This risewindows article will show you how to uninstall Microsoft Edge on Windows 11/10.
