Microsoft Edge and Chromium Edge confusion

Recommended Posts

I recently downloaded the new Chromium Edge with the new wave icon. The old Microsoft Edge has disappeared from my computer.  However, in C Cleaner on the left hand side under Windows I have  Microsoft Edge, Chromium Edge and Internet Explorer listed.  I still use IE as well as the new Edge but why is the old Microsoft Edge still displayed, there is no sign of it on my computer.  Any ideas please?

The old edge is still there, it's just effectively hidden. It still runs the underpinnings of windows, just not userside web browsing.

Many thanks. I won't try to find it and delete it then.

If you need to use both Edge Chromium and Ye-Olde Edge then see this article.

It is not recommended to have both active on the same machine as a regular user, but is sometimes needed by developers and support staff.
