How to Disable and Remove the Microsoft Edge Math Solver

Solving math problems becomes easier with the new Math Solver feature in Microsoft Edge. However, if you don’t plan to use it, you can disable or remove it easily. Here’s how.

Edge Browser Minus Math Solver

At the time of writing in June 2021, “Math Solver” is still in the Preview stage and is available by default in Microsoft Edge 91. When you click on it, a sidebar opens on the right side to let you clip and drop math formulas or type one in there.

If you don’t want the feature, however, you can hide the Math Solver button from the toolbar or disable it entirely.

To simply hide the button, first, launch Microsoft Edge on your computer. Right-click the Math Solver icon in the top-right corner of the toolbar and select “Hide from Toolbar.”

To disable Math Solver in Microsoft Edge, we’ll use the Edge “flags,” which are just like the Chrome flags.
