Is there any way to completely remove this browser from Win10? With some custom uninstaller from MS or something like that? In Settings the uninstall option is greyed out, see sshot1. It won't even reinstall, see second screen:
Has anyone had a similar experience with this?

Thx for any advice
Peter

Is it broken or are you simply trying to get rid of it. If the latter I don't believe you can Microsoft flags it as nonremovable.

do you mean 'Update & Security' - 'Recovery' - 'Reset this PC' or Windows Update 'Advanced Options' ? Or where?

No From Settings > Apps > 'Apps and features' locate Microsoft Edge and select it. 'Advanced Options' will appear below. From there you should see a reset button
