Block Edge in Windows 10 with Edge Blocker

Edge in Windows 10

Microsoft has been updating the Edge browser to include new features and options. The Edge browser should be comparable to Chrome and Firefox by the end of this year once it gets extensions support.

For those users who are not impressed with the new browser’s capabilities, Windows 10 doesn’t offer a way to uninstall or block the browser. And since it’s an app and not a classic desktop program, we can’t block or uninstall it using standard application blockers out there for Windows.

Few months ago, we reviewed a third-party tool which let you uninstall and remove Edge from Windows 10. In this article, we are sharing another third-party tool designed to completely block Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.

Edge Blocker is another free software from Sordum website. As you likely know, the Sordum website has tens of free tools like Easy Context Menu to add new options to context menu, DNS jumper to quickly change your DNS, Firewall App Blocker, and Qemu Simple Boot using which you can easily test if your bootable USB or ISO is really bootable.

The Edge Blocker software does one job and does it pretty well. It’s designed to completely block Microsoft Edge browser on Windows 10 with a click, and the software does its job without a fuss.

The program comes in handy, especially if you’re on Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro edition as these editions of Windows 10 don’t include the Applocker feature to block apps without the help of third-party tools.
