    That's a really bad idea.

  • All you did was delete the application files, it's been deleted, but you have to remove provision apps specifically, try doing that instead

  • You shouldn't. Instead, you are better just to choose another Application to use by default. It is a core component of Windows 10. However, if you really want to get rid of it, for a reason I can't understand, look at this SU question. superuser.com/questions/949814/… Commented May 29, 2016 at 2:38

This has an easy solution. Unpin Edge from your taskbar and ignore it. Use another browser like Firefox or Incredimail, or somebody else. Pin the new browser to your taskbar. Don't be like me and waste a week trying to find a work-around.
