The new Microsoft Edge is now mandatory on Windows 10 20H2

Today's version of Windows 10 20H2 is the first version to automatically replace Microsoft Edge Legacy with the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge regardless of your policies.

In January 2020, Microsoft officially launched the new Edge browser based on Chromium. Since then, those who wanted to use they could download it from the Microsoft Edge site or wait for Windows Update to install it automatically.

Once installed, Microsoft Edge Legacy will removed automatically and will be replaced with the new Microsoft Edge.

Those who did not want the new Microsoft Edge could use the Edge Blocker Toolkit or Group Policy templates to create Registry entries that prevent the modern browser from being installed.

The new Microsoft Edge is now mandatory

With the release of Windows 10 20H2, Microsoft Edge has become an essential and therefore mandatory component of the operating system.

If you previously blocked the installation of Microsoft Edge, these policies are now ignored and the new browser will be installed along with the new update capabilities.

Microsoft sources have told BleepingComputer that they consider the new Microsoft Edge to be an integral part of Windows 10 and part of the overall landscape. security of the operating system.

Because of this, they want to ensure that all Windows users are provided with a more secure, private and higher efficiency browser with all default facilities of Windows 10.
