Hi, many thanks for your help, I have decided to leave alone. It is not giving me problems at the moment. I was curious about having two identical icons.
I have updated to new Edge browser on my Desktop. I wish I had not done so. I shall have to get used to it.


I removed mine from Control panel >> Add Remove programs.

Defaulted back to the original Edge Browser which I too preferred.

That works for the manual download, but once you accept the Windows Update of version of Edge, there's no going back.

Edit: might be wrong on this, the Uninstall button seems to be there now, but not before.

This is why it is a good idea to do a image backup before you do an update, even a small one.
This is one thing the old restore function in windows XP, 7 and 8 was good at, it is still in ten, but disabled at default. It has saved me a few times over the years, now I just back up my system

REVO UNINSTALLER will remove it and all the Registry entries as well.

I suspect it will return when updating.

Happened again to me yesterday but the uninstall button was greyed out.

I followed this video and it worked a treat removing it no problem. smile
