You don't HAVE to use Edge but you cannot remove it. Internet Explorer is included in Win10 or you can install Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.

You can simply use Google to search for an alternative browser, download it and install it. It will work quite independently of Edge and IE. Firefox and Chrome are particularly popular.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

....and the new browser will ask you which one you wish to make default when you first run it.

Exactly, your new browser will ask you on install and on the first time you run it if you want it to be your default browser. Otherwise the way to change default programs is not from that program you want to change it from BUT by searching 'setting default programs' in Windows 10 and making the change there. Of course, letting the new program do the setting for you IS MUCH easier.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
