Microsoft explained why some Windows applications can not be removed

Microsoft has announced the need for its own browser

Microsoft programmers have explained why some Windows applications cannot be removed.

This was reported by Windows Latest with reference to the company’s materials.

Technical support experts said that the problem of programs that are not removed is more complicated than it seems at first glance. Embedded applications are part of the Windows ecosystem and interact with each other, so uninstalling some components can disrupt the integrity of the ecosystem.

In particular, the programmers noticed that the Edge browser and the My Phone program, which are deeply integrated in Windows, are not removed.

“Because Windows supports web-based applications, our own browser is a necessary component of the OS and cannot be removed,” Microsoft said in a statement.

For example, the Edge browser is used to open links in installed programs.

According to journalists, not all applications built into Windows are inviolable. In particular, relatively recently, users have been able to remove the graphic editor Paint and text editor Notepad.

In late August, Microsoft announced the end of support for Internet Explorer 11. The Internet navigation program will be deprecated in August 2021. The company said that the browser does not meet modern requirements, it also has an alternative in the form of Microsoft Edge.
