Browsers and Mail Rename Quick Links on New Tab Page in Microsoft Edge


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.

By default, when you open a new tab (Ctrl+T) in Microsoft Edge, you see a Bing search bar, Bing image of the day as the background, quick links as tiles of your most visited sites, and Bing news content visible to scroll.

Microsoft Edge will automatically add quick links of websites you visit to the new tab page. You can remove, rename, or add new quick links as wanted.

This tutorial will show you how to rename quick links on the new tab page in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

Here's How:

1 Open Microsoft Edge.

2 Open a New Tab page (Ctrl+T) in Microsoft Edge.

3 Click/tap on the More options (3 dots) button on the quick link tile of the site you want to rename, and click/tap on Rename. (see screenshot below)


4 Type a new name for the quick link, and click/tap on Save. (see screenshot below)


5 When finished renaming quick links, you can close the new tab page if you like.

That's it,
Shawn Brink
