Windows 10 - Web Browsing

Windows 10 includes the first version of Microsoft’s new browser − Edge. By default, Edge can be accessed by clicking on the icon placed on the taskbar.

When Edge opens, it presents a window similar to most browsers.

  • Forward − Takes you to the next web page.

  • Refresh − Reloads the web page.

  • New tab − Add another tab to see a different web page.

  • Hub (Favorites and History) − See lists of favorite web pages and history of visited web pages.

  • Web Notes − Make Web Notes on the web page.

  • Share − Share the web page via e-mail or other methods.

  • More options − See more options to configure the browser.

Adding a Web Page to your Favorites

Like most browsers, Edge allows you to store pages that you visit frequently as “Favorites”. To do this, follow these steps −

Step 1 − Go to the page you want to add as a “Favorite”.

Step 2 − Click on the “Star” button on the right-side of the browser.

Favorite Icon

You can then access your list of Favorite websites by clicking the “Hub” button on your browser.

The same “Hub” button can also present you a list or “History” of web pages you’ve visited.

If you wish, you can clear the history by clicking on the “Clear all history” option in the menu.
