That exact thing happend to me.

I "force uninstalled" Edge and now I am stuck.

Apparently I had removed "edge webview" or whatever some auxiliary program is called, has been deleted. So I re-installed Edge browser... but guess what? I have no webview back. I went to their webpage (WebView2 - Microsoft Edge Developer) downloaded that but then when I try to install it the edge-view pop up tells me that I already have webview installed... except that's not true. No webview or webview2 program is visible in control pannel installed programs list. Now what?
Repair install? And then leave Edge alone!

To add, if you don't care for Edge showing on the Taskbar or Desktop just remove/unpin the icon. It will still be in the Start menu. The downside of Edge is that many programs still look for the discontinued Internet Explorer and Windows is set to open Edge in its place so the need for it still exists and usually will be reinstalled with the next Version Upgrade and maybe with some Build updates.
