I'm trying to uninstall default edge browser from windows 10 machine and after that I need to install a specific version of enterprise edge into my machine. All this needs to be done through powershell as later on I'll automate the process using ansible. Where my installed version is 125.0.02535.51 and I need to install is MicrosoftEdgeEnterprise_X64_v115.0.1901.203

    Here's a combined script to uninstall the existing Microsoft Edge and install the specific version of Microsoft Edge Enterprise. For this you need to open PowerShell as Administrator:

    # Uninstall default Microsoft Edge
    $EdgePackage = Get-AppxPackage -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge.Stable
    
    if ($EdgePackage) {
        Remove-AppxPackage -Package $EdgePackage.PackageFullName
        Write-Output "Microsoft Edge has been uninstalled."
    } else {
        Write-Output "Microsoft Edge is not installed."
    }
    
    # Path to the Edge Enterprise installer
    $InstallerPath = "C:\Path\To\MicrosoftEdgeEnterprise_X64_v115.0.1901.203.msi"
    
    # Install specific version of Edge Enterprise
    if (Test-Path $InstallerPath) {
        Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList "/i $InstallerPath /quiet /norestart" -Wait
        Write-Output "Microsoft Edge Enterprise version 115.0.1901.203 has been installed."
    } else {
        Write-Output "Installer not found at $InstallerPath."
    }
