Microsoft Edge is already great for browsing the web, but now extensions help you do even more. Extensions are small programs that add features to your browser.
Give you new ways to interact with the browser. For example, the Mouse Gestures extension lets you navigate the web with a right-click and a flick of the mouse.
Work quietly in the background. This includes extensions to block most ads from appearing.
Add buttons to do more on a particular page. With this sort of extension, you can add a button to translate a page, or share on social media sites.
Some buttons only appear when you can do something with them on that page. For example, you’ll only see the Translator button when you visit a page written in another language.
To find extensions and add them to your browser, select Microsoft Edge on the Windows taskbar, then select More > Extensions > Get extensions from the Store. After you’ve installed an extension, follow the on-screen instructions to turn it on in Microsoft Edge.
Select More to see all your extensions. Use an extension often? To keep it handy, select More , press and hold (or right-click) the extension, and then select Show next to address bar.
