Microsoft will be pushing out the update, replacing the old Edge, to all Windows 10 users on Windows 10 RS4 (April 2018 Update) and newer.

but there is a way Not to get it if you don't want to.

 

To help our customers become more secure and up-to-date, Microsoft will distribute Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) through Automatic Updates for Windows 10 RS4 and newer. The Blocker Toolkit is intended for organizations that would like to block automatic delivery of Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) to machines in environments where Automatic Updates is enabled. The Blocker Toolkit will not expire.

 

  • For computers running Windows 10 RS4 and newer, the Blocker Toolkit prevents the machine from receiving Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) via Automatic Updates.
  • The Blocker Toolkit will not prevent users from manually installing Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) from internet download, or from external media.
  • Organizations do not need to deploy the Blocker Toolkit in environments managed with an update management solution such as Windows Server Update Services or System Center Configuration Manager. Organizations can use those products to fully manage deployment of updates released through Windows Update and Microsoft Update, including Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based), within their environment.

 

You can download the Blocker Toolkit executable file from https://msedgeblockertoolkit.blob.core.windows.net/blockertoolkit/MicrosoftEdgeChromiumBlockerToolki....

@HotCakeX Does this apply to all editions of Windows (e.g. unmanaged Windows Pro too)?

Thanks!

Hi,
for unmanaged devices, if the device is set to automatically receive updates from Windows update then they will get it automatically.
if device is managed through MDMs or SCCM then the administrator has full control over WSUS and which updates get pushed.
that toolkit is also there to help control the rollout

@HotCakeXDo we know the KB for which we are looking? I have not seen any of my devices updated yet, seeking or passively. All of them are 1803 or later.

They don't seem to have started the rollout from Windows update it, you can get it from www.microsoft.com/Edge directly
