While Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has improved by leaps and bounds over the years, it seemed like the stigma from the old days was too hard to shake, which resulted in Microsoft opting to create a new browser called Edge. However, even then that did not last long as Microsoft later rebuilt Edge using the Chromium platform.

So if you still have the old legacy version of Edge on your Windows computer, Microsoft has announced that on the 13th of April, 2021, they will start uninstalling it and removing the app from computers. The update will not only uninstall Edge, but will install the Chromium based version in case you don’t already have it.

According to Microsoft, “To replace this out of support application, we are announcing that the new Microsoft Edge will be available as part of the Windows 10 cumulative monthly security update—otherwise referred to as the Update Tuesday (or “B”) release—on April 13, 2021. When you apply this update to your devices, the out of support Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop application will be removed and the new Microsoft Edge will be installed.”

If you’ve already installed the new version of Edge, then there is a good chance that this update probably won’t affect you too much, if at all.
