For anyone's information:

Microsoft Edge is built-in the operating system. It is delivered by an update of Windows. So you can't uninstall it, since it will return again, via the specific update. You can disable it though.

The News and Interests (Weather) on the Taskbar, again, is a feature of the latest Windows update and NOT an Edge feature. You can't uninstall it, but you can turn it off (right click on Taskbar, News and Interests and Turn Off).

Typical Micro$oft, trying to take over our computers but disguising it by saying it's a feature rather than something you have a choice about.

Anyhow I'm glad that video I posted helped.

Apple has Safari browser as a built-in browser (iOS).

Google has Chrome as a built-in browser (Chromebooks).

Microsoft had Internet Explorer and now Edge as a built-in browser (Windows).

It's up to the user if they are going to use the built-in features or choose something else.

As for the Edge uninstalling, it will return with the next Windows update.

That's my point, just because something is common doesn't mean it's good.
They like to dictate what software we use in a particular OS.
I think we should be able to choose what we want and what is installed.

As I said above, and that's a period for me in this thread:

Fair enough, I'm done here too.

Hi Allan,
I just wanted to thank you again for the video you posted on July 14th about how to permanently uninstall Microsoft Edge. It's now 3 weeks later (with 2 updates) and Edge has not come back.
So THANKS Allan!
Mark

You're most welcome. I'm glad it seems to be a solution for you. (y)

As DR.M mentioned you may find it comes back after installing an update.
I'm not sure if the same method would work again if that happens.
