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.

You can use Math Solver in Microsoft Edge to get help with a wide range of mathematical concepts–from elementary arithmetic and quadratic equations to calculus and statistics.

Math Solver in Microsoft Edge lets you to take picture of a math problem – be it handwritten or printed – and then provides an instant solution with step-by-step instructions to help you learn how to reach the solution on your own. It also comes ready with a mathematical keyboard so you can easily type math problems instead of hunting around a traditional keyboard for the characters you need. That’s not all. After solving your problem, Math Solver provides many options to continue learning with additional materials such as quizzes, worksheets, and video tutorials.

OPTION TWO

Enable or Disable Math Solver in Microsoft Edge using Policy REG file


You must be signed in as an administrator to do this option.

This option uses the MathSolverEnabled policy that lets you manage whether users can use the Math Solver tool in Microsoft Edge or not.

If you enable or don't configure the policy, then a user can take a snip of the Math problem and get the solution including a step-by-step explanation of the solution in a Microsoft Edge side pane.

If you disable the policy, then the Math Solver tool will be disabled and users will not be able to use it.

The downloadable .reg files below will add and modify the DWORD value in the registry key below.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge

MathSolverEnabled DWORD

(delete) = Default - enable
0 = Disable


1 Do step 2 (enable) or step 3 (disable) below for what you would like to do.

This step will allow users to turn on or off the Show Math Solver button setting.
