How to Take Screenshots of Webpages on Microsoft EdgeDec 17, 2020
Microsoft is famous for many innovations and many memes in regard to Internet Explorer. However, the switch of the Web engine to Blink (also used by Google Chrome and other Chromium-based Web browsers) was welcomed by the Internet community. Microsoft’s Edge Web Browser quickly became one of the widely used Internet clients and it has roughly the same market share as Firefox if the data published by Statista is to be trusted.
Microsoft Edge has built the reputation of a reliable and fast browser thanks to months of development and polishing. If you are looking to replace your slow and bloated Web browser you should install Edge and give it a go. Edge is available not only on Windows, but on Mac and some Linux distributions, thus, expanding the support for users and becoming a truly cross platform solution. Microsoft Edge can be downloaded on its official website.
The browser has a built-in screenshot feature, integration with the Microsoft account system and supports almost all bells and whistles of Google Chrome. Edge also boasts a feature called “Collections” where you can keep pages for later reading, save images and text for your next report and presentation. The extensions for Edge can be installed from the official store. Here are a few suggestions on what you might like:
