How to Disable Internet Explorer in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge is the most secure web browser available for any OS. Edge is a Windows Store app, as with all other Store apps, it runs in its own protected bubble of memory and its core files are hidden away with such tight security that even an Administrator can’t access them.

If security is important to you or your business, you might want to minimize the risk of attack for your systems. You can do this by disabling any part of the OS that’s potentially vulnerable. This includes Internet Explorer, which, as a desktop Win32 app, has its core files visible and vulnerable to anybody with administrative rights.

If you’d like to disable it, here’s how.

1. Open Control Panel > Programs & Features.

2. In the left sidebar, click Turn Windows features on or off.
