1. Uninstall Chromium Edge either from Control panel or from Windows 10 settings => Apps

 

2. Go to Registry Editor by typing "regedit" in Windows 10 search

 

3. Navigate to: 

 

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft​

 

 

OR paste this in the address bar area of Registry editor

 

 

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft​

 

 

 

 

4. Right-click on "Microsoft" and create a new key

And name it "EdgeUpdate" (without quotes)

5. Then right-click on "EdgeUpdate", go to New and create a new DWord 32-bit and call it "Allowsxs" (without quotes)

 

 

Allowsxs

6. Set its value to 1

7. Exit Registry Editor

 

8. now go to www.microsoft.com/Edge to download Edge stable again. install it and after that you will be able to access both Legacy and new Edge from start menu or Windows 10 search.

This tutorial is for using only Registry editor, there is also another method to do this which is through Group Policy

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-au/deployedge/microsoft-edge-sysupdate-access-old-edge#how-to-enable-a...

 

for that you also will need the policy files which you can get from here:

Hi Can you please tell if the same works in Virtual machine VM box .

I tried the same steps in my VM but still unable to see the old Edge version.

Kindly note that i have add the registry and also enabled the side by side launch in Group policy as well . But still no luck with Old Legacy EDGE Icon.

Is there any work around to this.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
what is your Windows 10 build that you are using in VM?
also when you search in Windows for Edge, you don't see the legacy Edge there? because sometimes the icon won't automatically appear and you have to search for it and pin it again.

You are using Windows Server 2016.

Windows Servers and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB/LTSC do not have Edge UWP (legacy).

they only have Internet Explorer.

 

 

edit: you can read more about it here:

Thank you. If a PC doesn't yet have Chromium Edge, will this same procedure work if step #1 is skipped?
