Edge is the new web browser available in Windows 10. It's a stripped back browser that's designed to run quickly, but it still has lots of menus and setting options that you can adjust.

Set your home page in Edge
By default, Microsoft Edge’s home page (the page that automatically loads whenever you go online) is the Microsoft start page. However, you can change this to another of your liking.
To do this, click the three horizontal dots (•••) in the top-right of the window. From the menu that opens, select Settings. In the Settings menu, underneath Open with, left-click the radio button next to A specific page or pages. Left-click the drop-down menu below and select Custom.
Click the X icon next to about:start to delete it – this is the default homepage, which will also load unless removed. Enter the address of your preferred home webpage in the box that reads Enter a web address (for instance, enter google.co.uk).
Click the plus button to add it, then click to select the address. Edge will now load your chosen home page whenever you open it.
Set your favourites in Edge
Edge’s favourites tool is a great way to store sites you frequently visit, or to keep pages with useful information bookmarked.
The easiest way to do this is to head to the webpage you’d like to bookmark. Click the star icon, top-right of the Edge window. When you do this, a new window lets you name the bookmark then click Save.
You can now access the webpage from the Favourites list. To open the list, click the three horizontal lines (•••) in the top-right of Edge, then click on one of the favourites.
