Are you ready? Let's read!

Use system opportunities

To uninstall Microsoft Edge and use the built-in Windows uninstaller.

Press the Windows key and type in the search bar. Select the correct result by right-clicking Microsoft Edge and clicking the Uninstallation option. Next, confirm your decision and wait while your computer uninstalls the Microsoft Edge browser. However, keep in mind that the method to uninstall Microsoft Edge is not ideal, as leftover system files will still be present on your system.

Edge was designed to be a core system product, so uninstalling it meant you had to manually delete core system files. Although they do not take up much disk space, over time, such removal of programs and components will lead to the accumulation of residual files. This, in turn, will take up precious disk space.

You can fix this by manually deleting the residual files, but be careful not to delete other system data accidentally.

Try third-party apps

To remove Microsoft Edge permanently and not even come across leftover files, you should consider using a professional third-party uninstaller. Even though Microsoft Edge is a core component of Windows 10, Microsoft allows it to be uninstalled just like any other typical app. Using a professional third-party uninstaller enables deep scanning and thus deletion of all associated files.
