Removing Internet Explorer 11 Windows component

Hi yas, I needed to know if I can safely remove IE11 from Windows if I'm not using this browser for viewing webs and have already installed Edge 80 as its successor. By unchecking the component tickbox, I get a warning about possible functionality breaking of other Windows components that are dependent on MS browser. Is the IE11 still required or does Edge automatically take over all bindings to IE?
