    So what error does it throw now when you try with the right package name?

    Strange. Nothing problematic in WIMTweak's full log as well? Also, I know it's obvious but I assume you rebooted instead of shutting down and cold booting, or just signing out and back in, or just exiting and restarting the shell?

    That way people can ignore so many things, but some cannot rest in peace till all the OS components they find useless are removed completely from the system. Personally I have no problem with leaving Edge installed even if I rarely if ever touch it, but obviously not everyone can tolerate having it around even if it's hidden. :)

    Their doing it because they think it's phoning home, but if they think they can uninstall MS's Crown Jewel from OS without major problems, well I hope they like reformatting. :D

    Run this in an elevated Powershell:
    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Select Name > C:\Packages.txt
    Look in Packages.txt if "Microsoft-Windows-Internet-Browser-Package" is still there (And it probably will be).

    install_wim_tweak.exe and dism are both buggy as hell the way packages are removed today.
    Sometime it works, sometimes it don't, if you try to run several package removals in one go (With cmd file), the chances
    are good you you will screw your system.

    I'm on this in another thread here for those that are interested:

    The ugly thing has the habit to stole the default browser setting to any good browser you may have installed.

    This has never happened to me despite in-place upgrading from 10240 to 1511 and now 1607. FF is the first non-OEM program I install and it continues to remain my default browser ever since day 1 of Win10's release. If it's happened to you, maybe Edge hates you just as much as you hate it? ;)

    Maybe you don't install a new browser one or twice a day, and this makes your things simpler.;)

    No normal person installs a new browser once or twice a day! (What are you - just a heavy browser tester, browser developer or what?). No wonder our defaults don't get messed with as often as yours. In short, I wouldn't be so quick to blame Edge based purely on your atypical circumstances.

    De-Edgeing recipe:
    1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
    Right click it and "Pin to Taskbar"(Now you can remove the Edge shortcut)

    2. Copy paste the following in your search bar to get to Default Programs:
    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966}

    3. Then click on "Set your default programs"
    Locate Internet Explorer and click on it.
    Then click "Choose defaults for this program" and tick every box and save, done!

    4. To remove the annoying smiley in the upper right corner, add the following to a textfile and
    save as Smiley_gone.reg and doubleclick:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions]
    "NoHelpItemSendFeedback"=dword:00000001

    Edge is like a kiosk browser at an asylum for colorblind people.
    Calling it terrible is a mild understatement.

    Many years ago, when I was an inquisitive child, I took everything apart. When I couldn’t get something back together, my favorite uncle used to say it “died from tinker-itis”.

    I see all too many computers now days that have “died from tinker-itis”

    What I find really funny is how many mess with their systems and then promptly blame the OS for all their problems, while conveniently failing to admit to what they've done. And don't even get me started on those who use all sorts of 'cleaners' and 'optimizers' and tweakers with no clue how these work or what they're actually doing... :rolleyes:

    Uninstalling a program = mess only in the mind of Steev Joobs and people who follows his idiotic and dangerous philosophy

    My comment about mindless tinkering with system innards had nothing to do with simple uninstallation of a program, and if you read properly you'll see that I never even said that removing Edge would definitely break the system. It was a general comment in response to what PhaseDoubt said, and I couldn't care less about this 'Steev Joobs' of yours or his supposed philosophy.
