Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

Starting with Microsoft Edge Canary version 92.0.900.0, you can enable the Desktop Sharing Hub via experimental flags.

The Desktop Sharing Hub has a "Share this page" button in the address bar (Omnibox). When you click on the Share this page button, it will open the Desktop Sharing Hub with Copy link, QR code, Send page to your devices, Save page as, and Cast sharing options.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the Desktop Sharing Hub in Microsoft Edge.
