Microsoft Windows 10 Build 19043.899 (21H1) officially deletes the classic Edge browser

According to the Windows Latest report, you may already know that Windows 10 currently comes with three browsers pre-installed. Among them, there are two versions of Microsoft Edge. The third browser is Internet Explorer, but it is optional and can be enabled at any time.

Although Internet Explorer will not be removed from Windows 10, the Microsoft Edge browser is about to be reduced from two to one. Microsoft Edge Classic is still hovering in Windows 10 20H2 or older versions. When you have moved to the Chromium version of Edge, the legacy version of Edge is basically hidden, but it is still active in the background, and advanced users can run two Edge versions side by side.

In January of this year, Microsoft confirmed that it plans to completely remove the classic version of Edge and only promote the Chromium version of Edge. In the Windows 10 Build 19043.899 (21H1) currently downloaded in the beta channel, the old or traditional version of Microsoft Edge has completely disappeared.

After the beta version is updated, the new Chromium version of Edge will be installed automatically, and the retired browser cannot be accessed. This move is not unexpected. Due to the updated documentation, we have found clues to the removal of Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 last week. In the updated support document, Microsoft quietly confirmed that Windows 10 21H1 is the first operating system version without the classic version of Edge.

It is worth noting that Microsoft also plans to delete the Edge classic version in the old version of Windows 10. With the upcoming cumulative update (April 2021 Patch Tuesday), Microsoft Edge Legacy will be completely removed from Windows 10 20H2, 2004 version and other versions.

If you are still using a disabled browser, you will be forced to switch to the new version of the Edge browser. If you have switched, only the legacy version and its files (not your personal data) will be deleted.

In addition to Edge-related changes, the cumulative update of Windows 10 next month is expected to include fixes to recent blue screen and printing issues reported by users.
