We get asked a lot from customer about how to change their homepage on Edge. Many people have issues figuring changing their homepage on Microsoft’s Edge because the feel that the browser is not intuitive enough. This is the new browser that started shipping with windows 10. To assist you in changing your homepage we have made the video below.
Microsoft first introduced Edge as the default browser for windows 10. Replacing Internet Explorer 11. This was an upgrade that was needed for Microsoft to stay competitive in the web browser market. Edge adds many new features that people are loving but, it still feels like it is lacking some of the functionally other browsers have. With competition like Firefox and Chrome it will be interesting to see what Microsoft has in store for Edge. I would like them to look at building on the extensions that are available for the browser. This would add a new features by third-party software companies. This is currently what Google Chrome and Firefox are doing at it seems to be working very well. If Microsoft can push extensions or add-ons for their browser they could easily start to regain a lot of lost ground in the browser market. They currently do have an extension option but it still does not have many choices and they are not pushing this like their competitors.
