How to uninstall Microsoft Edge using Command Prompt
If the option to uninstall Microsoft Edge isn’t available in Settings, you’ll need to use Command Prompt to remove it because you received the new browser through Windows Update.
To get rid of the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge, use these steps:
- Open Start.
- Search for Command Prompt, right-click the top result, and select the Run as administrator option.
- Type the following path to access the Installer folder and press Enter:
Quick note: On Windows 10, the “Installer” folder resides inside another folder named after the version number of the browser currently installed on your device; as a result, the name may change as new updates roll out. So, in the path, we’re using the number “8” with a wildcard “*” to access the folder no matter the 8x.x.xxx.xx version you have installed. However, once the browser reaches version 9x.x.xxx.x, you’ll need to update the path to 9 with the wildcard.
- Type the following command to remove Microsoft Edge and press Enter:
setup --uninstall --force-uninstall --system-level
After you complete the steps, Microsoft Edge will be removed from the system.
