If you've updated to the new "Creators Update" in Windows 10, you may have noticed the Edge button in IE11 - it's a way for Microsoft to push users over to the new browser (as IE11 is the end of the line).

You can remove it by running "regedit" and navigating to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

If that path doesn't exist, you may need to manually create the last subkeys (Internet Explorer and Main).

Then, change the value of "HideNewEdgeButton" from 0 to 1. If this value doesn't exist, create a new DWORD(32Bit) called HideNewEdgeButton and give it a value of 1.

You may need to restart your PC for this change to take effect.

You should only make these changes if you're familiar with the registry editor - as you could break things if it goes wrong.
