Microsoft Edge may let you disable its non-essential parts — and you’ll love the reason why

Microsoft began testing out a new feature for its Edge browser that will allow users to disable some of its non-essential parts. The idea behind this is to help speed things up for browser users (via Neowin).

Sadly, this is not option isn’t widely accessible. It’s available to those who are part of the Canary channel as part of a controlled-feature rollout. Personally, I’m not a fan of Edge and wish they would make it easier just to delete it from my Windows laptop. As I’ve mentioned many times before, when you choose to use another browser, Microsoft makes it laborious to make the switch — and have you take extra steps to do so.

How to see see if you can use this new feature

Head to Settings, select Optional Features, and see if disabling optional components is readily available. You can also try the edge://settings/optionalFeatures link.

The funny thing is that the optional feature added to Edge harkens back to Windows 10, which gave users the ability to disable optional features quickly. You usually end up with your system performing better.
