How to install or remove extensions in Microsoft Edge?
Below we will explain step by step how to activate the extensions you like the most or remove them when you get tired of them. Follow these steps:
The first thing you must do is opening Microsoft Edge, then just click on the three vertical points in the right corner of the address bar, just like in Google Chrome.
This section between “Applications” and “Collections” will take you to the Microsoft page from which you can search and manage all the extensions you choose. If you want to browse all the options available, instead of using the search bar on the left, click on “Extensions”, just below.
You will enter the Microsoft extensions store, it works like the Google Play application store. You can also get extensions from the Chrome Web Store because they are both based on Chromium and both browsers support the same extensions.
Once you choose the one you like, just hit “Get” and “Add extension”. The icon of that tool will appear in the taskbar and from there you can register your account or start using it directly.
Similarly, if you want to remove one, right-clicking on the icon will bring up a menu where we are given the option to Remove from Microsoft Edge. The browser will ask us again to make sure it is really what we want to do and the extension will be removed from the system.
