At present, Microsoft has pushed the browser update to Windows 10 v1803 – v2004, which is actually the Microsoft Edge browser installation package.

The update for Windows 10 is KB4576753 and KB4576754. Both of these updates are set to be installed automatically, so they will be installed automatically as long as users connect to the Internet.

After the installation is complete, the new version of the Microsoft Edge browser will be automatically fixed on the taskbar, and an icon will be generated on the desktop to remind users to use it.

It is worth noting that Chromium Microsoft Edge does not support uninstallation after installation. Microsoft said that the browser is an important component of the system and does not support uninstallation.
