    I installed UblockOrigin for Legacy edge by mistake instead of for chromium, how do I uninstall it?

    I installed it through the microsoft store but it was not until after installing that I saw it said for legacy.

    The file name is weird as heck too 37833NikRolls.uBlockOrigin_f8jsg5mm64m62

    It is not in any appdata folder I had to scan my entire PC to find the thing.

    When I go to delete the file itself it says I need administrator privileges however I am the administrator for this computer.

    This is a brand new computer so I am a bit worried that I screwed something up.

  2. how to uninstall chromium

    Hi Scott,

    Chromium is the open-source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code. The browsers share the majority of code and features, though there are some minor differences in features and they have different licensing.

    I appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • Do you get any error while you try to uninstall the chromium browser?

    • How did you install the chromium browser? Is it through Windows store/third party website/any other source?

    • Does the issue persist only while you try to uninstall the chromium browser/ any other programs?
    You may follow the below suggestions and check if you are able to uninstall the chromium browser.

    Follow the below steps if you have installed the chromium browser through the setup file or through the other source.


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard, and select
      Programs and features.

    • Here you will be able to see the list of programs installed in your computer.

    • Right click on the program which you would like to uninstall and click
      Uninstall.
    If you have downloaded the chromium browser through the Windows store, open the Start menu, type chromium in the search bar, right click on the chromium browser from the search bar results and click on uninstall.

    Latest update changes pinned legacy edge shortcut to Edge Chromium

    Can anybody who has both legacy Edge and Edge Chromium installed verify this unacceptable behaviour.

    I did the regedit to retain Legacy Edge and that works fine, and in apps list I see both Edge Chromium and Legacy Edge.

    I pin Legacy Edge to Taskbar and it works fine.

    I reboot pc and it CHANGES the pinned shortcut to Edge Chromium - WTF!!!

    I tried pinning both and it still changes short cut on Taskbar to Edge Chromium.

    I tried to create a new shortcut for Legacy Edge using tutorial, and put it on my desktop. I RENAMED the shortcut, and it works fine. I pin it to Taskbar, reboot and it gets bloody changed to Chromium.

    This change has happened since most recent update. Before, it would do change it when you updated and only a minor inconvenience.

    I cannot find a way of pinning legacy Edge to taskbar now.

    Anybody have any ideas how to get round this reprehensible change?
