Microsoft Edge is a “trusted” UI App and a core part of the Windows 10 Operating System it sets itself to not only be the default browser, but the default PDF reader too it is deeply integrated in Windows 10 , Edge is clearly the application that Microsoft wants you to use by any means. And yet, there are many reasons to stay away from Edge and continue using Internet Explorer or other Browsers . There is no option to block it but sometimes it can be necessary for example:
One of our followers has emailed us and asked a way to block Edge because his child use it in restricted Account , his Windows version was Windows 10 Home and he said that he tried all possibilities to block the EDGE but no luck , we coded this App for him and realized many people need it.

[Fixed] – EDGE Blocker Corrupt Microsoft EDGE in “Windows 10 version 1703” Most probably it is a Microsoft BUG – Critical
Edge Blocker is a Portable Freeware , the app starts up right away after you download and unpack it , (it works only on windows 10)
The interface is pretty basic, and you can only block or unblock the Edge browser, so no super skills are required to work with it , once you’ve blocked the browser, it won’t load even if you — or an app — tries to launch , we recommend to change the default browser firs if you have no other browser installed just tick the I.E Shortcut box , Edge blocker will create a internet explorer shortcut on desktop.
if your Windows user account has administrator privileges, the restriction takes place at the system level, so all users are impacted. On the other hand, standard user accounts can only block Edge on their own account.
