Open Specific Pages When Microsoft Edge Is Launched

Microsoft Edge has the option of opening a specific page or a set of pages every time it is launched. This is in addition to opening a new tab page or the pages from the previously closed session.

Here is how:

Open Edge browser, and in the address bar, type in the following:

 edge://settings/startHomeNTP

Alternatively, click on the dots icon from the top-most right and choose Settings. Then click on the Start, home, and new tabs section.

Once they are added, and the option of opening these pages is set, the Edge browser will only show these on launch.
