The commands provided in the post did not work for me, however by tinkering just a little, they ran just fine, so I'll share these changes.

In case the commands don't work, try this:



1. Instead of:
cd %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Microsoft\Edge\Application\<edge version>\Installer

use

cd ${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\Microsoft\Edge\Application\<edge version>\Installer

Explanation: ${Env:<variable>} is a string substitution of an environment variable . Does the same as what %<variable>% should do, but the first wasn't working here.
(don't forget to replace <edge version> with your respective edge version, as instructed in the post)



2. Instead of:
setup.exe --uninstall --system-level --verbose-logging --force-uninstall

use

./setup.exe --uninstall --system-level --verbose-logging --force-uninstall

Explanation: Using "./" before a command tells the commandline that the issued command is a file located in the current directory (the one you have used the "cd" command to switch to).



P.S.: You can avoid the second step by issuing a single command instead:
${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\Microsoft\Edge\Application\<edge version>\Installer\setup.exe --uninstall --system-level --verbose-logging --force-uninstall
