Microsoft Edge Canary and dev versions have received support for Table of Contents for PDFs and Edge v87, now allows users to create a desktop shortcut for InPrivate mode.
Microsoft has a hectic task in hand when it launched the new Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium because of high expectations from users to bring features from Edge Legacy including that of PDF Reader.
With the recent updates in Canary and Dev, Microsoft Edge 87 now supports viewing and navigating through a PDF’s Table of Contents.
With TOC addition, the new Edge now needs options on the toolbar to access Two Page layout, Search function, and add Notes. Let us hope Microsoft ports them soon from Edge Legacy.
After Chrome, Microsoft Edge now allows creating a shortcut to launch the Incognito window from the desktop.
- Launch Microsoft Edge Canary
- Visit edge://flags
- Search for “Turn on InPrivate Desktop Shortcut”
- Select “Enabled” from the dropdown and restart the browser
- Click on the ellipsis icon and select “New InPrivate Window”
- Click on the InPrivate profile icon and select ” create desktop shortcut for InPrivate”
From now onwards, use the shortcut created on the desktop to launch Edge in Private browsing mode.
For the unknown, this can be also achieved by adding the “InPrivate” switch to the Target field.
