Get to know Microsoft Edge

The new browser recommended by Microsoft is here

The new Microsoft Edge  provides world-class performance with more privacy, more productivity, and more value. 

Get the new Microsoft Edge

To get started, select Microsoft Edge  on the taskbar.

You can search quickly by typing your search directly in the address bar. Whether you're looking for pictures of penguins or want a weather report, you’ll get search suggestions, instant results from the web, and your browsing history—on the spot.

Wondering what else you can do? Here are more things Microsoft Edge helps you do. 

Add your own comments to info you found online, and then share it. With Microsoft Edge, you can write on the web. Whether you're collaborating across different locations or presenting in a meeting, you can quickly sketch on a web page, or type your comments in note boxes.

Keep all your stuff in one place. Track the favorites you collect on the web—select Favorites  to view your favorites, reading list, browsing history, and current downloads. To make your favorites and reading list available across all your Windows 10 devices, just sign in with your Microsoft account.

Read content offline. Just add sites to your reading list, and you'll be able to read even without an internet connection.

Customize how your data is collected. You can block cookies and choose from other settings that help you decide what happens with your data. Need to manage browser history? That's under Favorites  , in History  .

Go beyond just browsing the web. Add extensions so you can translate websites, block ads, manage your passwords, and much more.

Become a pro. You can customize your settings by selecting Settings and more  in the upper-right corner, then selecting Settings . This is also where you can identify which version of Microsoft Edge you're running. Just look under About this app.

Tip: If Adobe Flash isn't working, the Microsoft Edge setting may be turned off. Go to Settings and more  > Settings > Advanced . Make sure the toggle for Use Adobe Flash Player says On.
