How To Remove Edge Tab in Internet Explorer

Windows 10 Version 1703 adds a new button in the tab bar of Internet Explorer to open Microsoft Edge. Like most of us, Edge just does not cut it as a viable option for broswing the internet. With many good features for security, Edge misses the boat on handling regular web functions and interations. So if you do not want to see that little button...

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Click on gear in upper right corner (tools) or press Alt-X
  • Click on Internet Options
  • Click Advanced tab
  • Under browsing, check the box next to "Hide the button (next to the New Tab button) that opens Microsoft Edge
  • Click OK
  • Close and reopen Internet Explorer
