Hi,

Unfortunately you cannot delete Edge from Windows 10. It would be helpful if you provide us the issues you are facing with Edge.

Thank you.

Thanks for your feedback.

If someone sends a web hyperlink inside an email and I click on the link, that action brings up EDGE rather than IE even while I have UN-pinned EDGE from my task bar and pinned IE there instead. I cannot seem to get EDGE to ignore what I want it to ignore. I want to bring up IE and not EDGE when clicking on a web hotlink no matter where the link comes from.

Also, EDGE prevents me from renaming my favorites permanently.  Try it.  Any changes you make to the way a favorite is listed are not saved permanently.

EDGE also re-orders my favorites alphabetically and doesn't respect the order they were in when they were originally imported. It will not let me re-order them in the listing unless I do it alphabetically. Thus, EDGE does not let me control how my favorites are displayed as IE does. Furthermore, EDGE does NOT take you to your defined home page except if you exit EDGE and re-start it. If you have been using EDGE and then click on your home-page icon, EDGE takes you to "Where do you want to go next" or words to that effect, instead of bringing up your own user-specified home page! A home page icon is supposed to take you to wherever you have defined your home page to be. But Edge does not do that. In short, EDGE prevents me from doing some things I have asked it to do and forces me to do whatever its creators have mandated. It is NOT a "user friendly" browser. I dislike it enormously and wish I could remove it from WINDOWS 10.

Microsoft edge always opens to a page that wants me to call a number to remove a treat from my computer. I cant close it or anything only task messenger will close it. so for right now id much rather t gone from my computer id feel safer that way. my computer is brand new and the only treat i see is Microsoft edge. its stupid that ur making people have a program on there computers that they dont want. its wasted space and most people like firefox or google they have long histories of being safe and most of all user friendly. Microsoft ur a great company but u need to let people choose what apps or programs people want to use or have on there devices. forcing it will ultimately result one thing... people will turn to apple for there freedom.

I tried Edge and determined I did not like it. I prefer IE 11. Microsoft's answer to my question to delete Edge is not accepted. There has to be way to delete Edge. Microsoft could offer (free) Windows 10 without Edge.  I wait for your response.

Sorry. You cannot uninstall Edge. It is built into Windows 10.

I recommend using another web browser such as Google Chrome.

Edge cannot be deleted anymore than explorer could be deleted from XP upward. It is integrated in to the system. I would suggest installing a browser like firefox, chrome or whatever you prefer and go in to settings and make it the default browser.

I don't have H&R Block software, but first close all apps the you are using. Then try installing the software.

Are you trying to download the product for and then installing it?
