Microsoft Edge is getting a new mini context menu

Having too many items on the context (right-click) menu can be
annoying when you want to perform a particular action in
Microsoft Edge. And there’s at least one or two option on your
context menus that you never use, especially when you’re
reading a PDF document in the browser.

In Canary builds, Microsoft is experimenting with a new feature
called ‘Mini context menu’, which is basically a simplified
version of the content menus for Edge browser. As shown in the
screenshot below, the mini context menu works in PDF documents
only and it will allow you to highlight the text or add
comments.

It’s possible that the tech giant is considering mini context
menus for other areas of Microsoft Edge too.

Conversely, managing the right-click menu in a browser can be
an annoying task, especially when you’re not willing to use
third-party extensions. The ‘mini’ context menu idea could
finally reduce clutter and it will be released to everyone by
the end of summer.

PWA and other improvements for Microsoft Edge

Microsoft is working on a new feature that will allow you to
quickly switch between multiple profiles when you’re using the
Edge-based Progressive Web Apps (PWA). In other words, you’ll
be able to manage different profiles for the web apps and you
don’t have to install the web app for all profiles.

The new profile switcher for Edge web apps has only been made
available through the testing channels and more users will get
access later this year.

In addition to new profile switcher, Microsoft has also

confirmed that it’s testing a new download manager for the
browser to help users manage their downloads directly from the
toolbar.

Microsoft is A/B testing these features, but you can try your
luck by downloading Canary builds of Edge.
