“We want to ensure that all Windows customers have the latest Microsoft Edge browser performance, privacy, security, and productivity,” Microsoft said. “Users can import data from the classic Edge into the new version, and the steps are to launch a new Edge and set up the profile and import browser data, and select Microsoft Edge Legacy.”
“The new version of Microsoft Edge is already included in the Windows System Update, so you can’t uninstall or continue to use the Classic Edge,” Microsoft said in its filing.
