Make a Personalized Incredible Tab Page

Most of the time you remember that in the internet browser lots of unwanted tabs, information, and ads show up. Even if those things are never in use, those things always stick to their place without any granted permission. Now in Microsoft Edge, you can personalize the tab page as you want. You can put everything that you want in the tab page as per your needs. There are three layouts available that you can choose.

Focused – In this particular layout, you will see that a huge search box will appear. Along with this, you will also see some links that you have visited before. They can be customized at any time, and if you want to remove any link, then you can do it easily by clicking on that link. On the bottom of the tab page, you’ll see the news that is provided by Microsoft, and you can customize it too.

Inspiration – Inspiration layout is much like the focused layout. However, you will see a color image of the day instead of black or white color. The search bar is minor and quick links are also offered from most of your visited websites.

Informational – You’ll find that the informational layout provides a search box, the smallest one and links are written below it as well. You will have so much space in this particular layout and in those spaces, you will find Microsoft news.

There are still so many things in these layouts that a user can change from the screen. Even if you don’t like the picture that shown, that can be modified as well. Things that you can change from the tab are:

  • You can choose what kind of Content Visibility you want from Microsoft News from the informational layout.
