Microsoft will uninstall the old Edge browser from Windows PCs on April 13

Microsoft may have spent most of a decade getting people out of Internet Explorer, but the company has a more decisive retirement plan for the previous version of the Edge browser.

Microsoft announced on Friday that on April 13, Microsoft will release a monthly cumulative security patch that will remove the old version of Edge from Windows 10 computers and install a new version based on Chromium.

The Edge version that Microsoft will uninstall is the version released with Windows 10. It uses the company’s own EdgeHTML rendering engine. In 2019, the company announced that it will completely rebuild the browser to take advantage of Google’s Chromium software.

Last June, Microsoft started rolling out it through Windows Update. Two months later, Microsoft announced that it would no longer issue any other security updates for Legacy Edge after March 9, 2021.

If you have already installed the Chromium version of Edge on your computer, this update will only remove the old version. Therefore, for most people who have opened or switched to other browsers, they may not notice the change.
