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. In Microsoft Edge Beta, Dev, and Canary channels, you can enable or disable the Add video comments in PDF experimental flag that allows you to add YouTube videos and .webm format videos that are hosted online (like OneDrive, GDrive etc) to PDFs as comments. Edge will support inline playback of these videos. This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable add video comments in PDF files opened in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge. EXAMPLE: Add video comments in PDF in Microsoft Edge Here's How: 1 Open Microsoft Edge. 2 Copy and paste edge://flags/#edge-video-comments-pdf into the address bar, and press Enter. (see screenshot below) 3 Select Default (same as disabled), Enabled, or Disabled in the Add video comments in PDF drop menu for what you want, and click/tap on Restart to apply. 4 When finished, you can close the Experiments tab if you like.

When Share browsing data with other Windows features is turned on, Microsoft Edge will connect local browsing data from your profile with the rest of Windows. Turning this feature on will help you find information from your history, favorites, top sites and recent tabs more easily using features such as Windows Search. If you turn off this feature Microsoft Edge will remove the data shared with Windows on the device and stop sharing any new browsing data from your profile. This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable sharing browsing data from your profile in Microsoft Edge with other Windows features. Share browsing data with other Windows features is currently only available as part of controlled feature roll-outs in the Microsoft Edge Canary channel, so not everyone will have this feature yet. Here's How: 1 Open Microsoft Edge. 2 Click/tap on the Settings and more (Alt+F) button (3 dots), and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below) 3 Click/tap on Profiles on the left side, and click/tap on Share browsing data with other Windows features on the right side. (see screenshot below) If you do not see a left pane, then either click/tap on the 3 bars menu button towards the top left OR widen the horizontal borders of the Microsoft Edge window until you do. 4 Turn on (default) or off Share browsing data with other Windows features for what you want.

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. To improve memory and CPU utilization of the Microsoft Edge browser, Microsoft has developed a feature called sleeping tabs. Early internal testing of devices with sleeping tabs has shown a median memory usage reduction of 26% for Microsoft Edge. Microsoft's internal testing has also shown that a normal background tab uses 29% more CPU for Microsoft Edge than a sleeping tab. These resource savings should result in excellent battery savings. Although individual device performance varies depending on configuration and usage, Microsoft expects the decrease in resource and battery usage to create a better browsing experience for users. Sleeping tabs builds upon the core of Chromium’s “freezing” technology. Freezing pauses a tab’s script timers to minimize resource usage. A sleeping tab resumes automatically when clicked, which is different than discarded tabs, which require the page to fully be reloaded. Microsoft built upon the freezing technology to create sleeping tabs. This feature allows inactive background tabs to “go to sleep,” releasing system resources after a set amount of time. These resources include both memory and CPU and can be used for new or existing tabs or other applications running on your device. By default, Microsoft set tabs to go to sleep after two hours of inactivity when sleeping tabs is enabled. If two hours isn’t right for you, you can choose a different time interval. Tabs that are asleep will fade to let you know they’ve released resources. To resume a sleeping tab, click on it like a normal tab. The tab will un-fade and your content will be there immediately. You can also add sites you never want to sleep to a block list in Settings. Starting with Microsoft Edge Canary 91.0.837.0 and later, you can now turn on or off Fade sleeping tabs.

It's easy to end up with a ton of tabs open. The more you have open, the more difficult it becomes to find, switch between, and manage them. With vertical tabs, you can easily shift to view your tabs in a pane to the side. This allows you to easily see the titles and access controls like mute and close. It even makes it easy to reorder your tabs, with the ability to drag and drop to rearrange. When you want to focus on a specific page, you can collapse the pane. Anytime you need to switch between tabs, you can hover over the pane to see all the information you need. The new Microsoft Edge is the only browser to offer built-in vertical tab navigation allowing for a more streamlined experience. Starting with the Microsoft Edge Beta, Dev, and Canary channels, you can now resize the vertical tabs pane. Microsoft Edge will open the vertical tabs pane the same size as it was when last closed or turned off. If vertical tabs is pinned, you will have the vertical tabs pane always show the size you set. If vertical tabs is unpinned, the vertical tabs pane will stay collapsed by default and automatically expand open to the size you set whenever you hover the pointer over the collapsed vertical tabs pane. This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable vertical tabs auto expand when collapsed in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge. Here's How: 1 Open Microsoft Edge. 2 While verticals tabs is turned on and unpinned, hover the pointer over vertical tabs to expand it.

You can boost your productivity, have more fun, and customize your browsing experience with add-ons (extensions) for Microsoft Edge. Extensions, or add-ons, are simple tools that customize your browser experience and offer you more control. Extensions are small applications that enhance the browser’s functionality. Once you install an extension, you can notice the extension icon appearing on the toolbar. If you have several extensions installed on your browser, these extension icons take up considerable space on your toolbar. Microsoft has received significant feedback from the users asking for the ability to manage these extensions and reclaim space on the toolbar. To address this feedback, Microsoft is rolling out a new Extensions menu on the toolbar. This extension menu allows you to hide one or more of your extensions from the toolbar. Furthermore, you can directly visit the Edge add-ons site to install more extensions or the extensions management page using the two links provided in the menu. The extensions button will be shown to you on the toolbar by default if you have one or more extensions installed on the browser. See also: Introducing the new Extensions menu on the toolbar | Microsoft Edge Insider Articles This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Extensions button on the toolbar in the Chromium based 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. It's easy to end up with a ton of tabs open. The more you have open, the more difficult it becomes to find, switch between, and manage them. With vertical tabs, you can easily shift to view your tabs in a pane to the side. This allows you to easily see the titles and access controls like mute and close. It even makes it easy to reorder your tabs, with the ability to drag and drop to rearrange. When you want to focus on a specific page, you can collapse the pane. Anytime you need to switch between tabs, you can hover over the pane to see all the information you need. The new Microsoft Edge is the only browser to offer built-in vertical tab navigation allowing for a more streamlined experience. Starting with the Microsoft Edge Beta, Dev, and Canary channels, you can now resize the vertical tabs pane. Microsoft Edge will open the vertical tabs pane the same size as it was when last closed or turned off. If vertical tabs is pinned, you will have the vertical tabs pane always show the size you set. If vertical tabs is unpinned, the vertical tabs pane will stay collapsed by default and automatically expand open to the size you set whenever you hover the pointer over the collapsed vertical tabs pane. This tutorial will show you how to resize the vertical tabs pane in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge. Here's How: 1 Open Microsoft Edge. 2 While verticals tabs is turned on, move the pointer over the vertical tabs right border until the pointer turns into a double arrow. (see video below) 3 Press or click and hold, and drag the border to the left (narrower) or right (wider) to resize the vertical tabs pane width size to how you want.

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 the Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary channels , Microsoft has added a built-in dictionary feature to Define selected words while reading a PDF document in Microsoft Edge. Define will be available in the full context menu and quick menu when selecting words in PDFs. The definition of the selected word(s) will show in a mini flyout menu with a brief description. if needed, you can select to see more details in a sidebar. The dictionary feature supports these languages: German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Swedish, Norwegian, and Polish. The dictionary feature is a Define addition to the mini menu for PDF annotations. In future edge versions, the on-selection menu and dictionary cards will also be supported on web pages 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. If Microsoft Edge detects SSL connection timeouts, certificate errors, or other network issues that may be caused by a captive portal (for example, a Wi-Fi network at a hotel or airport), Microsoft Edge sends a request to http://edge.microsoft.com/captiveportal/generate_204 and checks the response code. If the request is redirected to another URL, Microsoft Edge opens the URL in a new tab, assuming that it is a sign-in page. Requests to the captive portal detection page are a stateless service, requests are not logged, and cookies are not sent or saved. On Windows platforms, Microsoft Edge uses a Windows captive portal service. Otherwise, the Microsoft Edge captive portal service is used. You can turn off this service with the Use a web service to help resolve navigation errors setting in Microsoft Edge. You can also set to always enable or disable this service with the ResolveNavigationErrorsUseWebService policy.

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. To help resolve URL typos in the address bar that result in a website error, Microsoft Edge may recommend a corrected URL using the Suggest similar sites when a website can’t be found setting powered by Link Doctor. When a website navigation error occurs (ex: "bimg.com"), Microsoft Edge sends the domain of the web address to the Microsoft service to suggest a corrected URL (ex: "bing.com"). Microsoft Edge does not include identifiers or tokens with the domain. If the service finds a suggestion, it returns the suggested URL. Microsoft stores the incorrect domain and suggested domain to help improve the service. To help you navigate to the correct sites, the feature is turned on by default.
