Use Microsoft Edge To Make Reading And Managing Articles Easier

Microsoft Edge can simplify reading and sharing articles with the Windows 10 Creators Update.

It does this through Reading View and Sharing directly from within the browser.

To make reading articles easier and without distractions, simply open the required webpage and click on the book icon.

To share a webpage through email,  Edge offers the following options :

  • Cortana reminders
  • Mail app
  • OneNote
  • Reading List app

To share, click the Share icon.  As all these settings are synced when logged in to different Microsoft devices using the same account, these articles will be available everywhere.
