Have you upgraded to the new version of stable Channel i.e. 83? I have the updated version and am not seeing this behaviour in the settings app.

@vineydhiman it should be intentional, since starting with 20H2, Edge will be the integrated in the OS, replacing the legacy one.

Chromium sucks people. You've taken away features and forced an update onto unsuspecting consumers. THIS is why people are NOT buying Windows and simply using their iPhone, iPad or other Apple devices and dumping PC's left and right.
We're not your slaves to experiment with anymore....

@vineydhiman I tested with the latest stable release of Microsoft Edge and it is possible to uninstall it (It is NOT gray out).
Some users still prefer features of legacy version of Microsoft Edge like add note to PDF, set tabs aside,... which has been discussed here and we might see some of them in future. However, until then I believe user would need option to uninstall it.
I am sure very soon Microsoft Edge would be replacement for legacy Microsoft Edge and there would be no need to uninstall them and in this case it could be part of Windows 10.

@fawkes I had a doubt if you could clarify. Will the parts of OS where a web component is needed to render features, like the Add account popup in Settings to connect mail accounts, will Edge's WebView be used or it will still use the IE/Legacy Edge?

Thanks for sharing the links, but I know about this method and I was first English source to cover this workaround (https://geekermag.com/uninstall-microsoft-edge-if-uninstall-button-is-greyed-out/) after deskmodder shared this workaround originally :)

1) In case Windows 10 received Microsoft Edge through Windows Update, you will see gray out option.
2) In case, you manually install Microsoft Edge on your Windows 10 PC, you could uninstall it.
I have observed this behavior in number of machines and workaround to uninstall it has been discussed too.
