Go to your applications folder in the finder.

Right click on edge and go move to trash.

Then empty trash.

This type of question raises natural reply - how did you install it, or more precisely where from? Installing Edge from unofficial sources often makes it impossible to remove it by default means. I tried that too. :)

Hi Michael! Thank you for your answer.
But it's not so trivial as it seems.
The "Edge Feedback" icon is not on the Application folder but it is shown on the launchpad anyway, so i can't remove it.

 

 

@CyberGigiGo to the Applications folder and type "Edge" in the Search field. Then move Edge Feedback to Trash.
