@Demolishun You got the update with the forced New Edge.
You can uninstall it and revert back to the old Edge.
Then you can go to this link, follow the instructions and block the update for an unknown time:
I hope that was more helpful than the rest you've found on the Web...
Demolishun692121d@Qaldim Does this just block it and/or uninstall? PowerShell in admin mode will NOT let me uninstall Edge. It flat out refuses.
What pissed me off more than anything was the full screen "do this shit now!" thing it did when I logged in. Forcing people to do random shit is fucking horseshit.
@Demolishun It blocks Windows Update from installing the new Edge. But first you have to uninstall the New Edge from Settings > Apps > Apps & Features. If memory serves me right, you don't need to restart your system after the uninstallation. I repeat, this is about the NEW Edge.
Removing the OLD Edge, you try the instructions here:
(OLD Edge was my main browser, so I never bothered uninstalling it...)
And yes, Microsoft is quite aggressive pushing the new Edge. I totally hate the move into Chromium (or anything Google related), but I'm using it and oddly enough is a very decent browser. They have done quite good work on RAM consumption.
So there you go, you can get past the initial shock and try the new Edge, or you can remove it from your system and ignore the old Edge.
ameware35021dIs it not possible to just rollback the update itself?
someone's forgotten to fix win10 with this simple set of steps (you'll have to do them manually because takeown gay)
