I personally feel that this method is saviour of all issues. Whenever you get stuck in a problem, then doing it again from scratch can solve your issue. This hack works most of the time. How to uninstall it then? Don’t worry and follow the steps written down below to make your work easier.

  1. First step here is to close Microsoft Edge, and then open File Explorer.
  2. Next click the View tab which is present on top of screen and then check the box next to Hidden items. If you won’t check this box then in next step you won’t be able to find required file which needs to be deleted.

  1. Now that you have checked hidden items box, from here onwards you need to go to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Packages. Please make sure to replace username in the path by your computer’s user name.
  2. In Packages folder search for Microsoft edge folder, once you find it then right click on the Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder, and delete it.
  3. You will be asked for confirmation. Therefore, click yes to confirm. If another dialog box prompts on the display, then again click yes to confirm. This situation might come that the system will refuse to delete some of the files, in that case click Skip to proceed forward.
  4. One step which is always necessary after you have done any changes to your computer is to restart computer. Until and unless you don’t restart your computer these changes won’ be executed.

  3. At this stage a dialog box will appear in front of you, in the dialog box you have type PowerShell and then click OK. This step will start PowerShell for further execution to take place.
  4. It is necessary to run PowerShell in administrator mode. To do this, on the taskbar just right-click PowerShell, then choose Run as Administrator.
