Recently, Microsoft launched its new desktop operating system – Windows 11. Compared to the older version, Windows 11 has more features and a refined look. Just like every other version of Windows, Windows 11 also ships with Microsoft Edge browser.
Actually, Microsoft wants all of its Windows 11 users to switch to its Chromium-based browser, Edge. Although Microsoft’s new Edge browser is similar to Chrome, there are many users who like to use Chrome.
Windows 11 doesn’t restrict its users from using any other web browser, but it sets Microsoft Edge as default a default browser app. That simply means if you don’t uninstall Microsoft Edge, all webpages, PDF files, etc will open directly on the new Edge browser.
What’s worst is that Microsoft doesn’t allow users to uninstall edge from Windows directly. To remove the edge browser, you would need to rely on the Command Prompt.
