I use Brave, and find no use for MS Edge. Trying to uninstall what I don’t need, I found out that https://privacy.sexy/ can delete MS Edge (In the Remove Bloatware section for Windows.) My only concern with this is the possibility that brave might get uninstalled and then I have no browser.
Thinking about this a little, I think I should keep a brave download on my laptop. Will this work? And worst case scenario, I use a system restore point. Should I remove it?
As a note, currently, I have all connections from ms edge and edge updater blocked with portmaster.
Sorry that I didn’t clarify. I meant that if I uninstall Edge, which you say might not work, I lose a browser, right? Now, what if, somehow, me or someone else, uninstalls brave through control panel for example. Then I wont have any browsers, right? I know that using the script to uninstall edge wont uninstall brave, I just want to know what would happen if brave is uninstalled later. This is why I mentioned the possibility of me just keeping a brave install .exe on my laptop in case brave is uninstalled. I cant download from the internet because I’ll have no browser. In that case, I use the .exe. Hope this clarifies things.
Yes, but, you can always factory reset Windows therefore, re-instating Edge. If you want you could keep the Brave installer on your computer to prevent you from having to do a factory reset. It is also very unlikely your problem would happen in the first place.
