Remove MS Edge..

Hi Everyone,
I failed in my attempt to completely remove Edge from a Win 10 machine..
I tried to use add remove programs however there is no remove option.
Is there a reg key I can safely delete, or a shell command I can use please..

I've never managed to remove it, but I've removed the shortcuts and links from the desktop such that it is not apparent there is anything there.

I don't know, but I suspect it's like some other MS applications in that it's been rolled into the operating system in such a way that actually deleting its files will break the operating system.

It can be done, but it can get rather involved.

Here's an explanation from Tom's Guide.
