    How to remove Edge Legacy from standard browser-choise ? When Edge Chromium is also installed , I can choose between 3 browsers , when looking in the standard browsers ; IE11 , Edge Legacy ( recommended) , Edge .
    The point is , Edge Legacy does not function anymore , its been replaced by Edge Chromium , when choosing for Edge Legacy , you get the Edge Chromium ...............so , this choise Edge Legacy is no use at all ........
    All files and folders of Edge Legacy will remain in the OS , only icon which is replaced by the new Edge is the contextmenu icon in .pdf-files ; "open with ".
    My question is ; how (?) to remove the Edge-Legacy icon in the standard browsers , its bloated and has no use at all , anymore !

    :)
