@luckyindex Hi Lucky Index


You cannot rollback Edge: the only thing you can do is to uninstall it, then install an older version (assuming you have kept one of the older .MSI installer files).  On Windows 10, go to Start > Settings (cog icon) > Apps and see if you can uninstall it.  For Windows 8 and 7, go into Control Panel, then Programs and Features.


If you can uninstall it, and have an older version of the Edge .MSI installer file, then do the following to stop Edge updating:

  • Disconnect your computer from the Internet (to stop Edge updating itself)
  • Install the older version of Edge via your .MSI installer
  • After it's installed, search the Start Menu for services.msc and run it "as Administrator"
  • Double-click on "Microsoft Edge Update Service (edgeupdate)" and set the "Startup type" dropdown to "Disabled", then click OK
  • Do the same for the "Microsoft Edge Update Service (edgeupdatem)" entry
  • Do the same for the "Microsoft Edge Elevation Service" entry also
  • Restart your computer

You can now reconnect the computer to the Internet.  Providing you log into your computer as a non-administrator account, this will stop Edge from updating.  Remember though by using an old version of Edge you risk security issues as no fixes will be delivered.
