Solve Math Problems In Edge Browser With Math Solver

Microsoft Math Solver is an interactive math learning tool for students that can quickly solve math problems. It can scan images of math problems and also offers a keyboard to type in different math problems.

This interactive tool is available in Microsoft Edge version 91 as a preview feature.

Here is how to enable and use it:

First, check the version of Edge browser by typing in the address bar:

edge://settings/help

finding the edge version

If the version is 91, then Math Solver will be available.

edge version 91 and above supports math solver

To enable it next to the Edge address bar, change the appearance settings by typing in the address bar:

edge://settings/appearance

customizing edge appearance settings

From the Appearance section, enable the slider for Show Math Solver button.

However, having the icon enabled next to the address bar is easier and quicker for accessing it.

Once opened, it will be available in the sidebar.

Using Math Solver:

It has two options: selecting the math problem using the drag and resize box or typing in the math problem.

Selecting the math problem:

For this, you can take a photo of the math problem printed or handwritten as Math Solver recognizes both. Open the math problem image in Edge and then drag and resize the box over it.

There will be a small pop-up at the bottom of the box labeled Solve. Click on it.

Math Solver will automatically detect and process the math problem.

The solution link can also be shared with others if needed.

Also, you can open the solution in a new tab by clicking on the pop-out icon. It will open Math Solver with a detailed view that has different math topics and related examples listed.

Math Solver will process and list the solution for these problems.

It is a useful tool that makes learning math for students simple and interactive.

Hopefully, it will be a permanent addition to the subsequent Edge versions as it is in preview mode for now.

Do try it out.
