Microsoft ending support and removing Legacy Edge on Windows 10

Another Microsoft browser bites the dust. Legacy Edge, the original “Edge” on that was designed to replace MSIE on Windows 10 before Microsoft changed direction and used the same underlying engine already used by Chromium, Chrome and Safari is finally going away. During it’s short tenure and overlap with Chromium Edge, it’s lead to a lot of confusion by users that are not aware of the vastly different versions of ‘Edge’. Fortunately its support ended on March 9th, 2021 and it will be removed by Windows Update with the upcoming patch expected on April 13th 2021.

Remove language packs from Windows 7

I often have to install different languages/locales on Windows 7 to perform testing in different languages, unfortuately adding all of them into a single installation can take a lot of space, particularly when using a virtual machine.

Using the usual method to ‘remove installed software’ will remove updates, but leaves the languages in place, to completely remove them you must open a command prompt and execute the following:


LPKSETUP

Select the languages you wish to remove, and click continue… it will take a while, but the languages will be removed one at a time.
