Using Microsoft Edge on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install Microsoft Edge on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.

About Microsoft Edge

Developer Description

Microsoft Edge, now available on iOS, creates one continuous browsing experience for Windows 10 users across their devices. Content and data sync seamlessly in the background, so users can browse across devices, without skipping a beat. Familiar Microsoft Edge features like the Hub allow users to organize the web in a way that cuts through the clutter, making it easier to find, view and manage their content on-the-go. Microsoft Edge is designed for Windows 10 users to browse the web how they need to, wherever they are, without disrupting their flow. Continue on PC: Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by seamlessly moving content between your mobile device and PC (requires Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update). Data Sync: Your favorites, passwords, and reading list are synced across your devices, so no matter the device, your browser is always personalized to you. Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple. QR Code Reader: Easily read QR codes at the touch of a button. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen. Voice Search: You can now use your voice to search the web. Ask a question or speak a prompt to use the web in more natural, familiar ways. InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn't saved on your PC once you're done.

App Reviews

  • Edging Out Other Browsers

    By Sociology_Thom
    The speed of Edge has made it my go to on Windows...and now on iOS. I like the design, especially the minimalist navigation bar on the bottom of the browser. Being able to send a URL to another Windows device is also neat - and allows Windows users the ability to continue browsing on the desktop - just as OSX users can on Safari. Being a cross platform user, I am loving being able to integrate the two ecosystems in varied ways. Tab navigation on Chrome is also superior to others. The snapshots and grid of tabs makes switching a breeze .... and it is much easier to use than the ‘cascading cards’ on Chrome and Safari. The only complaint (minor quibble) is that it’s not fully integrated into other MSFT applications on iOS. For example, Outlook only allows me to open links in Safari and Chrome, not Edge.
  • Internet Explorer Review

    By Monkeyraquetball
    I have been using internet explorer for a very long time I got on aol tried to think neopets were cool and got really interested in computer viruses when they were on the big three the app I am using has a really great ease of access and I haven’t found any kind of tabbing loop or had any problems with returning to what I was reading of course I’m on an iPhone which means we are in a socialist dystopian nightmare as far as really testing the phone and the app this app and internet explorer itself allows the capability to see the world through the internet in a way I have heard less and less of recently pepridge farm remembers I’ll continue this review later when I’m thinking of what I know about computers maybe that’s how responsive the app has been to my interest
  • Good but not the best

    By LucarioTechGuy
    After exploring Microsoft Edge on the iPhone after its initial release to the App Store I have to say it’s good but not the best. Where to improve: Privacy settings: I would like the ability to save my privacy settings from my previous browsing session and have them applied to my next browsing session. Like say for example I toggle the offer to save passwords switch off in my first browsing session I would like it to remain off in each following browsing session following when I toggle that switch off. Next: when opening a new tab I would like it to go to a home page I set. I do not see the ability to set a home page in the app. Unless I have to pair my iPhone with my computer to get those settings I have applied to Microsoft Edge on my computer I would like the ability to set those settings similar to how I have Microsoft Edge on my computer. The good: I have my favorite sites from my computer in the favorites section on my iPhone I can print articles to the AirPrint enabled printer I use I can set my theme from light to dark like I have on my computer If possible I would like the settings I have suggested addressed
  • Great browser!

    By ChesterGreenBird
    I have been using Edge for iOS since it was in the beta testing stage. I've really enjoyed experiencing its tweaks and improvements all along, to bring it ever closer to the quality of browser that I love in Windows 10. While it doesn't (yet) have all the functionality of the Windows version, it's stable and likeable enough that I've given it the prominent spot on my iPhone's and iPad's dock, instead of Safari. Granted, there are things Safari does better, but most things are just as good (if not better) on Edge. The built-in "Continue on PC" is extremely useful; I've used it countless times. Altogether, Edge for iOS is top-notch! I'm curious to see what else Microsoft has up its sleeve!
  • A Browser I’ve Been Waiting For

    By raven_osx
    This is a very good browser for many reasons. The synchronization between my Windows 10 desktop and my iPhone is great. It is performed in app and requires no 3rd party software installation on my desktop. This is an advantage over iCloud sync via windows to phone in my opinion. Continue on desktop is nice because I like to be able to send a website to my desktop as well. However, this should be done seamlessly in my opinion because the feature can just as deadly be used on the Safari iPhone browser via continue on desktop app. The browser is also very speedy and loads content quickly story would expect.
  • Good browser, needs more

    By fuson79
    I like using edge instead of safari mostly because safari is to me just boring. I like the fact I can make my browser dark, to me it just looks better. It's fast and accurate. There are only a few things I would like to see changed, first would be implementing 3d touch for viewing links the way safari does, second be the ability to add your favorites to the start screen when edge is first started, and the only other thing I would like to see is fixing the problem of saving gif images that are actually animated, I have tried several times unsuccessfully to save gifs, and unfortunately am forced to revert back to using safari to save any kind of animated pictures. Fix those 3 things and this will be a 5 star browser.
  • Microsoft edge

    By 1worldview
    Installed this app on my iPad. I love it. The speed was a welcome surprise. And, surprisingly for this old lady, fairly easy to figure out how to use. The ads are still “tagging along” and I try to fool the “programmed content” of the ads by checking out things I care about, don’t care about and being too curious, I try to be careful, like NOT logging in thru the VPN AVAILABLE IN France, Canada, Singapore, etc... don’t want NSA “overworking” their paranoid possibilities, try to stay away from social media, but I am trapped there cause it’s the only way the children in my life will even attempt to stay in contact...but like all families, extended and all, that is complicated. Anyway, I’ve used edge on and off for about a month now, and I like it. So far so good.

  • Edge - I use on iPhone instead of Safari

    By realace
    I prefer Edge over Safari. In particular I like the fact that I can have it open a link in another tab and not have to go to that tab right away. I also like the fact that it has integration across the Microsoft spectrum. I use Windows and MS Office software, so using Edge (with Bing of course!) makes things easier and faster. Frankly I use an iPhone primarily because of the ease of use in making video calls with other iPhone users (like family members). Other than that, I am a 100% Microsoft user. I find that Edge mates the best with the Microsoft family and is an easier browser to use.
  • I absolutely love edge

    By Brmb1477
    I, while in the minority, love the UI and experience of Microsoft Software. It just all looks so similar and fluent. On my PC, I use edge and only edge as my main browser. Unfortunately, I currently have a MacBook, so using edge on that is impossible. I love the way edge looks and feel. The app itself feels modern and lightning fast. Switching between tabs is extremely quick and fluid. As soon as I purchase a Surface Book or Laptop, I will use edge as my go to iOS browser. However, until then, since there is no MacOS app, I will have to stick with chrome. But I can’t fault the app for that. I can imagine Apple being a stickler with allowing edge.
