Windows 10 Creators update adds button in Internet Explorer to open Microsoft Edge – Here’s how to remove it.

In the new Creators update for Windows 10, the option appears in IE to open Edge.
If you are like me, you do not want this. We still use some legacy apps only working in Internet Explorer.

The easiest way to disable this is with the following procedure :

  • Download the latest ADMX files for WIN 10 Creator update
    • https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55080
  • Use GPP to disable the new button
    • User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Internet Explorer \ Internet Settings \ Advanced Settings \ Browsing -> Hide the button (next to the New Tab button) that opens Microsoft Edge
  • Have a coffee !
