Remove Edge centrally on all desktop-clients in a network


  • Recently our organisation moved to windows 10.
    For our users it is important to run Office365 from IE and not from Edge.

    So my task is to remove Edge completely from windows 10.

    I don't want to viit each pc to remove it manually.

    Question:How can I automate this task for all 80 systems in our organisation?

  • Hi,

    There is no may to remove it. Since this is a part of the Operating System.

    When you try to uninstall this package via the PowerShell, it would prompt as below:

    You could set the default browser as Internet Explorer via the group policy in your organization.

    Set the default browser using Group Policy

    Alternatively, if your Windows 10 edition is Enterprise, you could use AppLocker to block the Microsoft Edge.

    If they are Windows 10 Pro, you could use Software Restriction to block it.

    Follow my steps:

    1. Open the Local Group Policy Editor.

    2. Located to the following path:

    Computer configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Software Restriction Policies

    3. Expand it, add new addition path rule as below:

    4. Click Apply and OK to exit the window.

    5. Restart the computer to take effect.
