    Hi guys, I have a pc here with fresh W10 Pro on it. I want everybody use Google Chrome ONLY, I already uninstalled IE11. I want to keep EDGE there in case Windows would be looking for it or anything, so I want to block the internet access for EDGE however no matter what I do in advanced firewall settings the EDGE is able to load internet pages as normal.

    I really dont want to delete it from system. Anyone can help please?

    There were rules for Edge in firewall already, so I change them from Allow to Block and done reboot, that did not work so I`ve added another rule for C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe but also doesnt work. Any idea?

    HA! Solved! I have added also MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe into firewall and finally it works :)
