Microsoft Edge to get a new feature for managing downloads

Microsoft Edge new feature

Microsoft is testing a
new toolbar experience for Microsoft Edge that will allow
you to access important browser pages instantly without
navigating to settings.

Browser toolbar provides easy access to common features, such
as your extensions and the menu. In Microsoft Edge, the toolbar
is easy to customize and you can use it to capture screenshots
of the website, browse your bookmarks, and share webpages via
Windows Share UI.

Microsoft has been testing a new toolbar experience that will
allow users to access the following pages:

  • Favourites.
  • History.
  • Collections.

You can access these pages directly from the toolbar and the
new UI is already available for history, favourites, and
collections in Microsoft Edge Canary v89.

Edge downloads flyout UI

It appears that the new UI will soon be coming to ‘Downloads’
too. This will allow you to manage and search your downloads
without having to navigate to Edge’s dedicated download page.

As you see in the above screenshot, Microsoft Edge’s downloads
menu now uses a new flyout layout and it can be accessed
anytime while browsing. The flyout menu also makes it
possible to clear the downloads history without having to
navigate to Edge’s dedicated page.

Edge’s toolbar is easy to customize, which means that you can
remove the link by heading to Settings > Appearance. Or you
can also switch back to the old UI by selecting “hide from
toolbar” option in the context menu.

The new toolbar design is currently rolling out to select
testers in the Microsoft Edge Canary builds and it will be
released to everyone later this year.

In addition to toolbar improvements,
Microsoft is believed to be working on a new tab preview
feature, which could be unveiled in January, according to
the roadmap. Likewise, the tech giant is also restoring a PDF
search tool and adding back support for Windows Inking.
